Pōhutukawa News, 7 September 2016

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Thank you to everyone who has put their name forward to be a parent helper on camp. We will try and confirm the final number of parents early next term.

The Big Move!
You will have heard that our expected move to Champion Street will take place on the first day of Term 4. We are preparing for this now and we hope to see you all at the parent meeting on Wednesday 14 September at 7:30pm.

Year 5 & 6 Choir (Glee Club)
They Year 5&6 Choir (Glee Club) will be performing at the Christchurch Schools Music Festival on 27 October. On Tuesday 13 September they will be travelling by bus to Avonhead School for a massed choir rehearsal. They will need to be at school by 8.30 this morning as they need to be seated at Avonhead School by 9.15.

If you still need to purchase tickets for the Music Festival they will be available from Ticketek in mid September.

Market Day:
All the children are working very hard developing their products and stalls for our Asian inspired market day.  This will take place on Thursday, 15 September. The students in Team Pohutukawa will be opening shops at 11am and will sell lots of interesting and delicious items such as Asian food, baking, confectionery, drinks, games, challenges and more!

Tickets will be sold before school near the flagpole on the day. Each ticket is worth 50 cents and most students will want to buy multiple tickets. Most items will cost between one and three dollars. Look for our posters around to school to find out what each shop will be selling. We would love to see you there.

We will be purchasing the supplies that the children need for their products this week. If they are making their products at home they will bring the supplies home on Friday.  Thank you for all the support that you are giving them. It is very exciting to see them taking on the responsibility for their own businesses.

The money will be used to fund raise for camp.

Food for Thought:
This free programme has been offered to us by Foodstuffs Ltd.  It consists of a classroom lesson about healthy eating and a supermarket trip with a free voucher to buy food for a healthy lunch.  It takes place in the first week of next term and will be a good opportunity for us to get to know the community around Champion Street.
The supermarket trips will take place on 13 October.  We will need parent support to walk with each class to the Richmond Street New World.  If you can help with this please let your child’s teacher know.  The time for each class is as follows:

Thursday October 13
  • Room 14: 9.30 - 10.30
  • Room 15: 10.30 - 11.30
  • Room 21: 11.30 - 12.30
  • Room 22: 12.30-1.30

Thank you for your continued support at this very exciting time.

Kind regards,
