Correction of Error
Last week in the Community Notices under 'A Fun Evening with Jo Seagar' I accidentally put the ticket price as $57.00 (which I thought was quite dear at the time) but it should be $15.00 (which is more affordable).  Sorry for any inconvenience caused.  Thanks Editor.

Cross Country - Please check the new information on this letter
Next Wednesday 10th August, we are having our annual cross country held at the Oamaru Race Course.  The Junior Hub 1 children will not be racing today but they will run their cross country on Friday 12th August at school at 2.00 pm.  The course is different this year to align with the new North Otago course that was run last year.  The entrance for parents will be through the main southern entrance and then walking round the track to the southern end.  Supporters can watch the races from the marked viewing area.  Please keep off the track.
Children will run in their year level not their age groups as in previous years.  Children can wear their PE gear to school and have with them warm trousers (navy or black), school jersey or jacket and a drink bottle.  Any children with asthma or allergies are to make sure they have with them any medications required and hand them to their class teacher.

The whole school will be travelling out by bus at 9.30 am.  Note change of year start times:

Yr 2     10.00 am
Yr 3     10.10 am
Yr 4     10.20 am
Yr 5     10.30 am
Yr 6     10.40 am
Yr 7     10.50 am
Yr 8     11.00 am

In order for this event to run safely, Mrs Souness requires a number of marshals.  Please let her know if you can help.  They also require a number of picnic rugs and tarpaulins for the students to sit on so if you have any can you please drop them off to your class teacher.

The postponement date for the cross country will be held on Tuesday 16th August at school.

Home & School Raffle
This week each family received a raffle card to sell for their term 3 fundraiser. Please look out for this raffle card in your child's bag.  Thank you to the families who have already returned their sold raffle cards.  All sold raffle cards need to be returned to the school office by Monday 15th August as the raffle will be drawn on Friday 26th August or when all the tickets are sold.  They also require parents to assist us with the selling of raffle tickets at Countdown Supermarket on Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th August from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm each day.  Shifts will be for 60 minutes each.
