Rippa Rugby Tournament
On Friday 15th March, we are looking at entering teams in the annual Rippa Rugby tournament held at Whitestone Contracting Stadium. Teams will be made up of Yr 4/5, Yr 6 and Yr 7/8 mixed players.  Children who play touch rugby will be given first preference for this tournament.  A notice will come home tomorrow regarding this.

The junior swimming lessons start on Tuesday 12th March.  There are a few families who need to send their swimming notices back so we can organise times and groups for the children as the format may change this year due to the groups and numbers.

Seniors - please see the swimming notice regarding the sports on another page in the blog.  A hard copy will also come home tomorrow.

A reminder that technology for Yr 7 & 8 starts on Monday 4th March.  The children need to be collected from St Kevin's College at 3.20 pm.

Touch Rugby
All teams and coaches have now been finalised.  Each touch team have their own touch rugby ball to play the game with and/or practice.  Contact details have been given to coaches and parents so if your child cannot play or is running late to a game, please contact your coach.
This Tuesday, our school is on duty which involves setting up the fields before 4.00 pm and ringing the buzzer for start and finish times.  We would like as many people as possible to help set the fields up.  We only have to do this duty once or twice a term.  Please be at the fields at 3.30 pm.
The touch draw will be emailed out to you or it can be found by going to the North Otago Junior Touch Rugby Facebook page.   

We warmly welcome William Allardice to our new entrants class this week.
