Our Place

TOUCH LEADERS

A big thank you to the seven students who are refereeing touch rugby games between Taita Central School and Pomare School on Thursday afternoons at Pomare School. We are pleased to have been given this opportunity to support our local schools and our refs did a great job with Year 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 students – some of who had not played touch before.  This is running for most of the term and is good opportunity for our students to develop their leadership skills and learn to ref a game, which they all love to play!

 

HUTT PARK TOUCH RUGBY

Last week the touch rugby game was cancelled because of weather, the game this week will go ahead. We are playing at 7pm against Jitterbugs.

OUTSTANDING FEES

There is an expectation that Technology and Sports fees are paid. The BOT are extremely supportive of students throughout the year however technology fees for materials, and sports fees are required to be paid by parents. A letter will be coming home to those parents showing what is owed and needs to be paid.

 

Never Give Up

EPRO8 TOURNAMENT

Last Thursday evening two teams of four students represented the school at the EPro8 Challenge.  They constructed a giant mouse wheel, a model of a tower with an elevator and calculated the number of balls needed to fill the hall.  The teams worked well together showing good problem solving and teamwork skills.

Today we say goodbye to Ella Kingi. Ella has been a valued member of staff and teacher aide for students, she will be missed by everyone and we wish her well.
