Birthday Greetings to:

Coughs and Colds
Over the last couple of weeks, there have been numerous children away with chesty coughs and head colds and we thank the parents for keeping them at home so they can get well.  Some children have got over the chesty cough and cold but have a lingering dry cough and even though they have tested negative for covid, it is hanging around. 

These children can come back to school and if we notice the children are unwell and unable to learn, we will send them home.

  • Guinea Pig Show - Otago Cavy Club is a new club located in Otago. We held our first show in August last year but we haven't been able to hold a show in person since due to Covid.  Recently we held an online show which was very popular.  We are now organising a show in Oamaru on Sunday 5th of June.  We were wondering if you would be able to put details of our show in your newsletter and also your facebook please. Doing this would mean alot to the club AS we want our show to have lots of pet guinea pigs entered. We hope to have lots of public come along for a look and learn more about guinea pigs too. If you could let us know and we will send you the details. Contact Josh Wilson-Jones at the Otago Cavy Club by email or 021 055 2117.
  • Activities at the Oamaru Library - Does your school community know that the Ōamaru Library offers a Book Club for children aged 8-12 as well as a Lego Club for children aged 7 and up (younger children can attend if their parent/ adult caregiver stays)? Their numbers have been quite low due to Covid and not been promoting lately. The files are attached to the email.
