Walking Trip to the Margaret Mahy
As a special
end of year celebration we plan to walk from Champion Street to The Margaret
Mahy playground in Armagh Street on Tuesday, 13 December. We will leave
Champion Street at 12pm and walk to the playground, alongside the Avon River.
When we get there we will have lunch and an afternoon of fun and adventure. We will walk back to Champion Street at 2pm ready for the buses back to Beckenham at 2.30
We will need parent help for the walk. If you
are able to support us please let us know.
End of Year Shared Lunch
term all the children visited a local supermarket to learn about healthy
eating. We received some vouchers to buy food for a healthy lunch. This week a team of
children will survey all the children and plan a delicious lunch. This will replace our
usual end of year celebrations and we will not be asking parents to provide a
plate of food to share.
lunch will take place on Wednesday 14 December. Parents are very welcome to join us at this time.
celebrate the end of a successful year, the Pohutukawa students will be involved
in some team challenges. The children will need to bring their togs, two
towels, some old clothes (which may get dirty) and a plastic bag to school each
day from Wednesday, 7 December to Wednesday, 14 December.
2017 Road Patrol Training

the focus and commitment shown by the children. They will receive their roster
for Term 1&2 early next week.
We extend a huge thank you to the wonderful
parents who provided transport back to Champion Street at the end of training.
