PTA Mothers Day Gift Exchange
Hi everyone, we hope you all had a great holiday with your families over the past two weeks.
Due to the huge success of our ‘Mothers Day Gift Exchange’ in previous years, the PTA have decided to continue with this tradition.
Mothers Day this year is Sunday 12th May.  We ask that every child bring along a gift each, valued at no more than $5, which the children will exchange for something, that takes their eye, to give to their mother on Mothers Day.
There will be a container outside the office as of this Friday, 3rd May for your child to place their gift in.  Please do so by Wednesday 8th May.
Many thanks – your PTA Committee          

Year 6 Camp at Stewart Island – We trust everyone is having a great time and we look forward to hearing all the stories next week.

In the holidays it was my Pops birthday and we went to a restaurant.  When I was waiting a lady came to give me a piece of paper and crayons.  In the holidays I went to Joy’s home with my Mum.  I was playing with Joy’s kids on the trampoline.  We went to another restaurant and there was a playground. – By Rose

In the holidays it was my cousin’s birthday and I smelt cake.  I took a photo with my cousin.  I got to keep the picture.  I ate the cake, I had ice cream.  The party was great.  I also played at the party. I went to Te Anau and I saw Mrs Williams at the café.  I ate a waffle, it was so yummy that I had some of Dad’s waffle  – By Emme

In the holidays my Dad came to my house and so did my brother.  We did lots of cool adventures together.  We went to Monkey Island and it was fun going there, we climbed on the rocks.  Oh wait, another thing we did was we went to Clip and climb.  My Dad, Mum, Mitcham and I went climbing too.  Then just Mum and I went to the Harlem Globe trotters, then…. they scored! – By Mitchell

Another thing I did was I tasted a big Easter bunny, they were delicious.  I love Easter because you get to spend time with family and I love my family – By Jordis

In the holidays I watched TV most of the time.  It was boring.  I went to a Chinese restaurant, then I went home.  I watched TV again, I asked if I could play on the Nintendo Switch. I went to my Grandma house because my Dad, he had to cut down two hedges – By Dean
