We hope you can all attend, the children will love showing their grandparents their work and their new classrooms.
The Character Parade is on Friday 4th June at 9.15am and all are welcome to attend. We would love all the children to participate in this event as it is a lot of fun. We prefer costumes to be made from bits and pieces around home made with lots of imagination. We are surprised every year by the fabulous costumes the students have created.
We look forward to seeing you there.
We are having a “sports shirt” round up! Do you have a Turua School sport shirt at home? Do you have 2? Can you please return to school any shirts that are not being worn for a current sporting event i.e. hockey.
Please bring shirts TO THE OFFICE – you can leave them on the desk.
If you have a shirt that is being used at the moment can you please email or ring and let me know what number you have (on the inside of neck line). email@example.com or leave a message on the absence line 078675003.
We really appreciate your help with this.
GARDEN TO TABLE
This week in Garden to Table students were busy planting seedlings and learning about what flowers attract pollinators in our vege gardens. In the kitchen students made pita breads with herb salad and pumpkin chickpea koftas. Students gave rave reviews of 9 or 10 stars out of 10!””
