Dear Parents

With the end of the term upon us, I wish to thank all the teachers and support staff for their work this term. Looking back it has been very busy with lots of different events that our children have taken part in. I wish to thank all those parents who have been able to assist us in making these events happen. Your support is much appreciated.

School re-opens Monday 1st May. Have a safe and happy holiday.

PTA Mothers Day Gift Exchange – Due to the huge success of last year’s Mothers’ Day Gift exchange the PTA have decided it will run again this year.
Mothers’ Day this year is in the second week of Term 2, so we ask that every child bring along a gift each, valued at no more than $5. There will be a container outside the office from Monday 1st May for your child to place their gift in.

The 2017/2018 Entertainment books will be sent out to each family early next term.
Parents/caregivers have the option of purchasing them for $60 each/or returning them to school. We have 20 books available at the office for extra purchases. Alternatively follow this link to purchase a digital copy online. Payments must be made with a credit card only: www.entbook.co.nz/26009b1.

Room 5 Class Happenings
For Lent, Room 5 talked about the possibility of doing something positive to strengthen our spiritual life and to make the world a better place. The children came up with the idea of making donations of food to people who need it. We made a list of possible places we could take our food donations to and decided that because some of the families in our classroom have used the facilities we would email the Invercargill Ronald McDonald house to see if they needed any items in particular.  Yesterday Mrs Tagomoa-Kaa went and took the items to the Ronald McDonald house and they were very grateful!

Holy Week Photos
During this week, we met in house groups to learn about Holy Week. We learnt alot about Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
Once again it was wonderful to see the older children working with the younger children.

School Holiday Music with Saelyn Guyton – Experience new instruments, learn songs and play in a group. Also taking enrolments for Term 2 singing and guitar lessons. Spaces are limited. For more info or to book, please contact 0273086512.

Dear Parents

Good luck to the children representing the All Saints Zone at the Southland Primary Schools Athletics on Saturday.

Also to Briarlee & Kyron Devery, Tim Richardson, Ben Bryan, Josh Livingstone and Rohan Murray who are representing our school at the Southland Primary Swimming Champs at Splash Palace on Sunday. These children will need to be at Splash Palace @ 8.30am for warm up. Mrs Richardson and Mrs Murray are our team managers, so keep a look out for them, as they will have the programme for the day.

Our prayers are with the Dudfield family this week.

Room 8 Class Happenings
This week in Room 8 we have been writing narratives that we are going to make into iMovies. It has been tricky for us to think about what effects or editing we want to include in out movie as well as writing what will happen as a story that we can read. We are all very excited to make these into movies over the next week and cannot wait to see them after all of the planning and work that we have done so far!

Physical Activities Leaders 

Last week some students from Room 8 and Room 9 attended a PALs training day at the stadium. We learnt some fun new games that we can play at lunch time as well as lots of different strategies to help us be great leaders. We look forward to running these games for other students at lunch times next term.

Orders need to be in to the office (with money) by 9am Monday morning.  Available are: 4kg bag of Coxs Orange, Royal Gala, Braeburn or Pacific Beauty apples for $10, 4kg bag of Comice pears for $10 and 3 x Pumpkins for $10.
