Welcome to Week 5 :)
Welcome to Jill Kelk on Monday. Tracy is away sick.
Staff Maths Inquiry Project: On Tuesday Jill Kelk is relieving for Tracy in the afternoon, and on Thursday afternoon Jill Kelk and Lynda Wilson are relieving.
Farewell to Miss T
This Thursday 16 November is Miss T's final day with us. Those last seven weeks have flown by and we have loved having Lisa as part of the teaching team in Kohara. A huge thank you to Lisa for all her efforts with planning and teaching the children - we are going to miss her!
The PTA are holding a uniform sale on Monday 13 November before school, and again at the end of the day (2.30-3pm). Payment is by way of donation.
Classroom Release Time
Room 18 have Art with Mrs McHaffie and Room 19 have PE with Mr Lukes on Tuesday 9-10.30am.
Health & PE Rotations
This week our junior Health & PE activity groups will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
There will be no reading on Tuesday due to CRT as well as Health/PE rotations and Kapa Haka.
Canterbury Anniversary Day
No school on Friday 17 November due to Canterbury Anniversary Day. Enjoy the long weekend.
This week will be the last week for individual weekly spelling words. Please also revise your cild's previous list words as we will be re-testing the Essential List words over the last few weeks of the term.
A reminder to please check that sunhats without the quick release safety catch must have the cords cut off for safety. Those with the new quick release catches are fine as they are :)
The school pool opens from Show Weekend. Class swimming will be starting up from next week, weather permitting. We will advise soon as to our class scheduled swimming days.
Junior Athletics and Triathlon
Your child should have brought home a notice on Friday with the information about our upcoming Junior Athletics and Triathlon on Wednesday 29 November (although we did find several left lying outside on the ground!)
Athletics is from 11-12.30pm at school on the field followed by a community picnic lunch (coffee shop will be open).
The triathlon is an optional event in the afternoon on the same day - permission slips need to be sent back to school if your child would like to take part in this. Any questions, please just ask :)
The next PTA meeting is coming up n Tuesday 21st November at 7.30pm in the school library. This is our last meeting for the year and we'd love to see you. If you're curious about what we do or would just like to lend a hand and support the crew with our fundraising and social events over the year please feel free to come along and join us.
A huge thanks to the PTA for organising the recent movie night screening of Bad Moms. It was so lovely to see so many Kohara mums enjoying a few laughs and a great movie.
The PTA are also selling the ECO fruit and vege bags and dishcloths. These would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas. The oldest in the family should have had information about these. If you are interested there is also information pinned on our classroom door.
No Touch Rugby on Tuesday
No Touch rugby this week due to Cup Day. Touch will resume as normal the following week.
Have a great week :)
