School Photo Orders
Tuesday is the last day for school photo orders. If you are ordering online, please remember to still send your envelope back to the office.
The Halloween Disco is this Tuesday night from 5.30-6.30pm for the Juniors. $2 entry and Halloween themed glow products are also available for purchasing. All children must be picked up by an adult INSIDE the hall at the end of the disco. Wear your spookiest costume (parents - why not join in the fun and dress up too!) Thanks to the PTA for organising this - it is always a lot of fun and the children love the chance to dress up for this one.
Bad Moms Movie Night
This is now Sold Out! The PTA are looking forward to catching up with everyone that brought tickets on Wednesday 8 November for a fun social night out with our Waimairi community.
Health & PE
We are working hard on learning to interact with new people in new settings and focusing on what we can do to make our interactions better. This week we have the third round of Health and PE activity rotations coming up on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
In our last activity group we discussed how eye contact is important when talking to someone or introducing yourself. There are lots of opportunities for practising this both at school or at home when talking to people. It is also really important to answer someone politely when they talk to you e.g. when someone says hello or good morning to you, or when someone asks you a question. Being able to do these things even when you are nervous are all part of interacting with others. Have a go at home or when out and about this week or even when coming into Kohara in the morning.
Library Day on Friday
Kapa Haka on Tuesday
Monday: French club and Chess club
Tuesday: Craft/Sewing club
Thursday: Art club
Please remember your blue school sunhat so you can enjoy our outdoors this week especially as the weather forecast is looking wonderfully sunny. Much better than having to sit in the shade during break times!
Sunscreen - we have sunscreen available in our classroom for the children to use if needed.
Have a great week :)
