Friday 3rd of December,
9am to 12.00 noon
Otamatea Christian School is a Private School nestled behind the Congregational Church
overlooking the beautiful rural community of Maungaturoto.

Our school provides a solid foundational Christian Education. The Year 13, Accelerated
Christian Education Certificate (A.C.E) is recognised by universities and higher learning in-
stitutes throughout New Zealand.

At Otamatea Christian School our desire is to build in students a life-long burning passion to
learn and grow spiritually. It is one thing to want children to be successful and quite another
to provide the academic and character training to ensure this accomplishment.

Our unique program consists of a mastery-based curriculum and materials that are phonics
based, self-instructional, character building and individually prescribed.

Whether the student is a high achiever, a moderately paced learner, or a slow learner, the
A.C.E. educational process begins at the exact level determined by the child’s ability. Indi-
vidualised programs of study make it possible for each student to master the subject matter
before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.

We offer a Free Diagnosis and Prescription:

Is your child really mastering basic Math, English and Spelling skills? Could there be learn-
ing gaps that have not been identified? Successful completion of this diagnostic indicates
readiness for high school. Please phone the school to make an appointment for this diagnos-

Scholarships: These will be available to apply for in 2011.

We would welcome your visit on our open day or any enquiries you may have about the
school. Should you wish to arrange an alternative day to visit so that you can see our school
in action please do not hesitate to phone me on 4318-487.

ing station has impacted on our monthly figures. Being an Ambulance Officer is only one of Trevor’s outstanding
talents. He is well known around town for his baking skills. He
has been entering the local Paparoa A&P show for over 40 years,
entering his Limousin Stud cattle then moving to vegetables,
flowers and more recently adding preserves. During all this time
he was also on ambulance duty.

Trevor hosts the local 500 card club weekly in his home and fre-
quently supplies his famous cream cakes for supper. People of-
ten phone Trevor for advice when they are unsure what to do
with unwell family members. Trevor also joined the local bowl-
ing club and is still actively involved; he was recently given the
honour of being made a Life Member. He has been presented
with many local community awards, and a prestigious overseas
award, the Dix Penning Award for his contribution to Calla Lily

We would also like to pay special tribute and thank you to

Trevor’s late wife Yvonne, and his children Karen and Kevin for
their loyalty, support and dedication to both Trevor and the
Maungaturoto St John.
We all wish you well on your well earned retirement, and con-
gratulations on 55 years of dedicated service. Trevor has been
made a Life Member of Maungaturoto St John.

The end of November again and the last newsletter of the calen-
dar year. Times flies, it doesn’t seem long since I was saying the
same words last year.

After a few early hiccups the renewal of the front green appears
to be coming along well. The contractors are confident it will be
equally as good as the other one.

The ladies have been holding a series of their championships and

competitions. The first one was the Handicap Singles won by
Helen Nevill from Shirley Bird.

The Championship Pairs was won by Helen Nevill and Naira

Vaney from Shirley Bird and Judith Broome.
The Championship Triples were drawn teams with Naira Vaney,
Helen Nevill and Valda Mann winning from Beryl McKay, Ju-
dith Broome and Carolyn Van Pelt.
