3. School Notices - Week 8, Term 3 2021


Birthday Greetings
James L and Isla A

Goes to Charlie, Daniel, Eva and Warren who got selected for the U12 North Otago Touch Rugby team last Friday.  This team will compete in tournaments against teams from Otago.  Well done to you all.

Cross Country
A notice went home this week regarding our school cross country next Friday at the Oamaru Race Course.  Please note the later start time of 11.45 am.  If you can help in any way, please contact Mrs Brien.  A copy of the notice is on another page in the blog.

Food Festival
As per previous email notifications, the St Joseph's Food Fair which was meant to be held on Sunday 26th September has been cancelled this year due to Covid Level 2 regulations.

Junior School Swimming
A swimming notice has gone out to all junior school families regarding their child's swimming lessons starting next Tuesday. We require more adults to walk with the children to and from school so we have the correct adult to child ratio when walking to the pool. A copy of the notice is on another page in the blog along with the swimming groups.  Please let Mrs Brien know if you can help.

Please note if your child has a cold, they will not be allowed to swim under present Covid Level 2 guidelines.

Subway Lunches
There will be subway lunches for tomorrow but there will be none on Friday 24th September as we are away from school during lunch and they cannot be delivered.  It will resume again on Friday 1st October.

Summer Sports Notices
Thank you to the families who have returned/emailed their confirmation/permission forms for Futsal and Touch Rugby.  Summer sports notices have been handed out to your children and also emailed out to everyone.

We have put the list of touch teams from term 1 on another page in the blog and added the new children to these teams.  We still require families from term 1 to confirm if they are playing.

The Yr 1/2/3 teams have had an influx of new players wanting to play next term, however we have not received confirmation back from some term 1 players.  We need to know if your children are playing again as we can make another Yr 1/2/3 team.  We do not want to be in the position of creating another team and term 1 players have opt-out which would have created room for these new players. Please let us know by next Monday 20th September.

We require an adult for each team to be on the sideline to manage the team and substitute the players on and off the court.  You do not need to know the rules for Futsal as you will pick these up as the game progresses. The guidelines on how to play Futsal will be given to each player once the team is registered.

Yr 1 & 2 - we have enough players for this team  (9) - Aachoo, Carter, Hunter, Emere, Manase, Gavin, Evan, Jane and Ares.
Yr 3 & 4 - we currently have 5 players and need another 1 more player
Yr 5 & 6 - we currently have 4 players and need another 3 more players
Yr 7 & 8 - we currently have 3 players and need another 4 more players

Further information will be sent out later.

We warmly welcome Arianna, Ezmeralda and Allison who started in our junior school recently.

Winter Sports Uniforms and Gear Bags
We would like all clean winter sports uniforms and gear bags to be returned to the office asap.
