KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO ALL PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL
What a fantastic day it was for The Giant Pumpkin Festival. It was awesome to see so many of our families there supporting the event and so many staff and parents helping out. Congratulations Anikha and team for organising such a successful event with all funds going towards our Garden to Table programme.
On Monday 12th April we will be holding our Student Learning Conferences for parents to talk with teachers and discuss their child’s goals and achievements. Today Booking Forms were sent home with children. Please feel free to arrange another time with class teachers if this does not suit you.
GIANT PUMPKIN FESTIVAL REPORT – Leah and Cohen
The pumpkin festival was a really good day last weekend. We had a bouncy castles, a fire truck squirting foam, sausage sizzle, raffles and more. The biggest pumpkin weighed in at about (49.5 Kgs ) And they had to grow them for six months . I just want to say a big thank you to all of you for coming and our volunteers on the day. There were over 400 people that came to the pumpkin festival and there were 37 Giant pumpkins that were entered . You could enter for different things like… Gumboot decoration, scarecrows and decorated pumpkins. We also had some very good reviews .
