KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO ALL PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL
Welcome to week 3.
Congratulations to our students who have been representing Turua School at numerous events over the past week and thank you to all those parents who have been assisting with transport and supervision. A special thank you to Paulette Herewini who transported groups to both the Ripper Rugby and Epro-8 Challenge yesterday.
All students were fine ambassadors for Turua School and gave their best at both events. Our Ripper Rugby Team only being beaten in their semi-final during extra time!! We are very proud of you all.
Photos from these two events are shared below.
A reminder to our parents that students are able to bring scooters etc on a Friday (Not bikes) to ride on the back courts. To ensure safety we ask that all students are prepared with appropriate safety gear.

BOOK FAIR BLURB
The Book Fair is fast approaching and while not all details have been confirmed this is what is happening so far.
The Fair will open on Monday 31 May and books will be available to view and purchase from that date. Payment is by cash or credit card, (no eftpos sorry).
We have a great selection of titles this year, so I am sure there will be something to tempt everyone.
The Character Parade and Grandparents Day are both on Friday 4th June starting with the character Parade at 9.15am. Everyone is welcome to come and watch and support the students. It is always a fun event, especially if there are lots of entries, so please help your child to take part in this event, costumes need not be expensive or lavish. We prefer costumes to be made from bits and pieces from home with lots of imagination mixed in. So get your creative juices flowing and give it a go.
All books purchased from the Fair gain the school a commission. The more books we sell the more commission we earn and the more new books the library has. So we really thank you for your support of this event.
More details will be posted on the School Facebook page next week, so keep an eye out for these.
Otherwise see you at the Book Fair!!!
GARDEN TO TABLE
This week in Garden to Table our tamariki were busy making leaf mold by collecting dead Leaves from around the school. Put into sacks and left over 6 to 12 months this will become excellent compost for our gardens. In the kitchen students were making beetroot relish (with pink hands to prove it) and Turkish gözleme (Flatbread stuffed with cheese and silverbeet. Yum! Check out the recipes to give it a go at home!”
We have been informed that there is Strep (A) throat in the Hauraki area. If your child needs a throat swab please contact Ngatea Pharmacy.
