Rippa Rugby Tournament
We are entering two teams in this North Otago Primary School Rippa Rugby tournament tomorrow at Centennial Park.  All families involved have been given information regarding this.  Good luck to our teams.

Subway Coordinator
We are needing a new Subway lunch volunteer as the lovely Jessica is stepping down as she is going to have a baby soon.  The coordinator will collate all the subway orders, write the children's names and  their orders, tally the money and drop the orders off to Subway each Friday.  The time will be from 8.30ish to 9.15-9.30 am depending on how many orders there are.   If you are interested in volunteering your time for up to an hour every Friday morning, please contact the office.  Jessica will be able to show you what the job involves.

We warmly welcome Ares to our new entrants class this week.

The names of children who are wanting to play a winter sport are displayed on the sports notice board.  Anyone who has offered to coach a team will be notified next week and will be given a list of names for their respective teams.  Some teams are short of a couple of players and we are looking for more players.  

Some sports teams may not have enough players and we will endeavour to combine our teams with a club.  If you wish for your child to play a sport and there are spaces in the team, please let Mrs Brien know.

Second Hand Sports Equipment and Gear
If you have any old sports equipment and gear surplus to requirements, please donate them to our school for other children to utilise.  This applies to both summer and winter sports and any gear that comes in we will advertise in the newsletter e.g. rugby boots, cricket pads, bats etc.
