Pohutukawa Update Term 4 Week 3

Kia Ora Whanau

The term is already ramping up with different events happening every week. Here are a few reminders:

Calendar Art

What a great Christmas present to receive! The PTA have extended calendar art orders until tomorrow, Friday 3rd November. The office has clearfiles with the art in hard copy for you to look at and you would have been able to get a sneak preview of these during learning conferences last term. Please get the order forms to the office or teacher asap. 


The PTA are putting on their annual disco this Friday 3rd November. Disco times are as follows:
  • Years 0-3 @ 5:00 - 6:00pm
  • Years 4-6 @ 6:30 - 7:30pm
  • Years 7&8 @ 8:00 - 9:00pm
Gold coin entry. Bling, food and drink will be available to purchase while we boogie to DJ Don's tunes. Please remember that all children need to be collected by an adult, from the hall at the end of their scheduled disco. 

Beckenham Tea Towels

These have all arrived and they look great! Please pop into the office asap to pick them up if you haven't already.


Please keep sending boxes and cardboard in for our learning around probability next week. 


We have been lucky enough to hold all of our athletic events with no postponement dates necessary. We are all so proud of the children for taking part in the events enthusiastically and really appreciate the support with cheering, walking groups down to Hillview and trying to win the adults Vs children relays - there's still next year! 

Gayle and Jenny are currently in the process of sorting out placings for the Zones tournament. The South Zone Athletics day is Monday 13th November at Hansen Park. More information about this will be coming out soon. 

Cycle Safe - Year 6

Thank you for the permission slips coming in promptly. Please get these in by next Tuesday 7th November so we can organise groups and equipment. 

Keeping Ourselves Safe

We are currently working through our Keeping Ourselves Safe unit and have started our lessons with Constable Ross. Thank you for working through the home learning booklet with your child, it is awesome to see how confident they are around this subject after discussions with you. These can be handed in by Week 6, Friday 24th November, when we will be finishing the unit. 

The egg-sitting has been a huge hit with some eggs even looking like they will survive the 4 day challenge. Thank you for your support with this.
