Kia Ora Koutou

What an awesome day last Friday with our Pet Day.  The children created some amazing sand saucers, aqua jars and tray scenes.  It was also great to see a wide range of pets from chickens to sheep.  What a laugh having Ivy and Zephyr’s chicken lay an egg while here – she must of been really relaxed.  A big thank you to Pauline Sanderson for judging our floral creations and Donna and Bailey from Top Vets,Coopers Beach for judging the animals plus bringing in some great prizes.

Cultural Festival tomorrow – the tamariki having been working hard on their performance.  They are going to be great and look ataahua in their new uniforms.  Remember we are all meeting at Hato Hohepa in the morning – by 9.00am.  If they have to cancel due to weather I will let you know through text messsaging, facebook and skool loop- they are letting me know about 7.00am (Hangi that have been ordered will be delivered to school)

One of our lovely parents has been working with the Senior Class making bags.  they children love them. THANKS RAMONA!
