Touch Rugby
We are waiting to hear back from North Otago Touch Rugby to see if we can enter another team in the Yr 1/2/3 grade because the previous gap in the draw has now been filled by another team.  We will let you know if this is possible and what the teams will be. I have 2 children on the waiting list but if there are any other children wanting to play in that year group, please let Mrs Brien know thanks.

We warmly welcome Ryan and Ivan to our school this week.
