Birthday Greetings to:
Molly O'Neill, Stirling Heffernan, Tessa Souness and Cassidy Rawson
All children and any adults are welcome to join the Parish in the Christmas parade this Saturday 25th November. We are not having a float this year but will walk with a vehicle displaying a Christmas banner. Children can dress as angels and shepherds. Adults and older children can wear red and white. We will meet in the school car park at 10.00 am and walk together with Mrs Misiloi to Humber Street where the procession begins. Children can be picked up from the Farmers Market grounds in the old part of town where the parade finishes. Any inquiries please phone Jocelyn on 027 552 2756 or 434 8073.

Saturday 25th - Christmas Parade angels and shepherds wanted

Tuesday 28 - Library books due in
Thursday 30 - St Kevin's Orientation Day for Yr 8's
Friday 1 - Disco for Yrs 1-6
Next Friday is our Home and School Disco for Yrs 1-6 only (sorry no pre-schoolers). The disco will start at 6.00 and go to 7.30 pm. The theme is Christmas and it costs $3.00 for entry which gets you a drink, a bag of chips and a glow stick. If you want to buy another glow stick it will cost an extra .50c and $1.00 for another drink. Parents should be warned that the main lights are off and there will be flashing lights and loud music. We are asking that the children are to be dropped off and picked up at 7.30 pm as they will be adequately supervised by our Home and School parents.
These notices went home to every child apart from the Yr 8 children, at the beginning of the week and they are due back by tomorrow. Unfortunately there are still 130 replies that need to come back as they are required for us to organise swimming, cricket and touch rugby for term 1 and as we only have 3 more weeks of school left, we require this information. Please drop these forms back to the office asap.
Will now be in next week's blog.
Tea Towel Fundraiser

Yr 6 Education Outside the Classroom
This week our Yr 6 class has experienced learning outside the classroom. They experienced being mini master chefs where they had to create a meal from their laptops with cans that had no labels and with a limited amount of money to buy the groceries required for this. The judges thought the food was very well presented, very nutritious and tasted lovely. They have enjoyed rock climbing, water safety, team building games, abseiling, scavenger hunt and today they are in Dunedin experiencing Leap (trampolines) and a walk. Tomorrow they have another exciting day planned. A very big thank you to our wonderful parent helpers who have helped made this an amazing week. Photos from this week will be in next week's blog.
