Kia Ora Everyone,

The end of the year is drawing very near though things are not
slowing down. We have had explorers week this week and the
children have been having a lot of fun these last few days. We have
some pretty good golfers and tennis players at school, and Miss Bs
mural is looking great! Thank you to all of the parents who have
helped out, especially today with Mrs King being sick.

Numbers for next year continue to build, we have had many enquires about enrolments from families
moving in. Please if you know of anyone who is moving in, tell them to give us a call we would
appreciate any heads up so we can sort classes as soon as possible. They do not have to enrol their
children next year but some notice would be good. The School Office will be open on Monday 26
and Tuesday 27, 10am - 2pm for enrolments, stationary, uniforms and tours of the school. School for
all students starts on Wednesday 28th January 2015.
Our search for our new teacher is progressing, with applications closing tomorrow, hopefully we find
our new person soon though if need be we will re-advertise to makes sure we get the right person for
our school and your kids. As soon as I know I will let you all know via the school website and
Facebook page. Classes for next year are as follows, though this may change as it is very
dependent on our new teacher and new enrolments (I just thought you might like to know the general

Please remember this is not set in concrete as we dont know who our new teacher is or the numbers
of students until all enrolments are in.

Finally, a huge congratulations to all of our award winners from last weeks prize giving. We had
another fabulous turn out and support from our community. The list of recipients is in this newsletter.
Well thats all for now, have a great weekend.

can get to a library or even use youtube, take the time over the holidays to experience as much Dr
Seuss as you can. There are also interactive games at (AND if you are
anywhere near a costume or op shop, keep your eye out for anything that can be worn in our Dress
Up As a Dr Seuss character party. Mrs King and Mrs Corbett have first dibs as Thing 1 and Thing 2
