Stolen Tennis Net
Last Sunday, some despicable low life people stole the black tennis net from our court which they had to cut down from the poles.  It was stolen between 4.30 pm and 7.00 pm. If anybody comes across any information regarding the missing net, please contact the school.

There has been quite vandalism to our netball and basketball courts during the last couple of years with trespasses coming in out of school hours and swinging on the hoops and bending them.  Again if anyone sees anything, please let the school know.

Athletic Trophies and Certificates
These will be presented at assembly next Friday at 2.15 pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

The year 6 EOTC has a cycle activity planned for one of its days where they will be biking on part of the Alps to Ocean bike track.  Unfortunately they are short of a few bikes with gears and wondered if anyone was able to kindly lend them for the day and a practice run beforehand.  They would only be used during school time.  Please contact either the office or Mrs Streat.
