The library stock place will take place on Tuesday 6th December. All books will be boxed in preparation for their shift to the new library location upstairs. It would be extremely helpful and much appreciated if any outstanding books could be returned, replaced or paid for by the stock take date. Thanks for your assistance.

North Otago Athletics
Congratulations to the children who participated in the North Otago Athletics on Monday and to those who received placings. These children will receive their certificates at Kotuitui on Friday 9th December as the senior children are away the next two Fridays'. Thank you to Miss Mann-O'Mally and the St Kevin's students who helped out.
On Friday 2nd December, the Home and school are holding a school disco for new entrants to Yr 6 in the school hall from 6.00 to 7.30 pm. The theme is Christmas and they would love to see as many of the children dress up in the theme. (even a piece of tinsel put on you). The disco is for school children only and therefore we ask that no pre-schoolers attend as it is an end of year school celebration. Tickets cost $3.00 each which gives you an entry ticket, glow stick, bag of chips and a drink. Entry is paid at the door.
The children should have received their ordered school photos today. If they haven't received them, please first check with your child's teacher otherwise contact Fotographix on 433 0015.
The season will finish on Tuesday 6th December.
We warmly welcome Siua Tu'akoi who started school this week to our new entrants class.
