Dear Parents & Caregivers
It is with great excitement that I write my first newsletter to you. Firstly a very big thank you for the wonderful welcome you gave me on Monday. My first week has been an amazing learning experience and I am certainly very familiar with the principal’s computer already. I am excited about the journey ahead and the wonderful possibilities. Below is a few upcoming events to be aware of.
Please come to school tomorrow dressed in yellow and please bring a gold coin donation for this worthy cause.
Skiing – the second round of the ski programme continues on Monday 3 September. Please ensure you have your students at school by 8:30am and that they have all their ski gear.
We have been invited to put in teams for the Queenstown Primary Touch competition in term 4 – starting from 29 October, and running for 7 weeks with the last game on 10 December. Cost per player will be $22. We have a number of students interested in playing – but we need coaches! If you’d like to take on the task of coaching a touch team, please apply for the job, stating your experience and qualifications. Basically, if you’re fit and healthy, you’re in 🙂
