No Code Club on Thursday

Hi All

No code club tonight as it is Halloween and some of you would want to celebrate with food and fun.

Unfortunately for code club, I am also away overseas for the following 2 weeks. So what that means is that the next code club will be on Thursday 20th November.

Remember you can still complete activities at home.


Pet Day reminder

Tomorrow is Pet Day and school will finish around 12.30 after the final parade.
Baking is needed tomorrow for the bake sale.
There will also be a sausage sizzle and the Coffee Cart will be on site.

Parent Evening tonight

This is a reminder that we are holding a parent/wider whanau information evening tonight in the staffroom at 5:30 pm.  The focus of the meeting will be listening to Erin from Family Planning Organisation discuss the Hauora and Sexuality programme for Kahikatea, Kauri and Kowhai  parents, and asking any questions that you may have.
