Newsletter #27 August 31st

Thank you for your support of the Daffodil Day Appeal. A total of $347 was collected and sent on to the Cancer Society. We are now down to four weeks until the end of the term and hopefully the spring weather will arrive to warm us all up and dry out the grounds.
I am leaving soon and have asked for no farewell. I have something special planned to say goodbye to the children, and will send out a farewell notice closer to the time.

Warm Welcome To
Cadie McDonald. We wish you a long and enjoyable time here at Matipo Primary School.

Happy Birthday This Week To
Cadie McDonald, Posie Davis-Barr, Franklin Davis-Barr, Isaac Worley, Zoe Tollemache, Kate Donald, Tony Zhong, Emily Gong, Ethan Jackson and Zandan Smith.

Individual Photos – TOMORROW
Photos are being taken TOMORROW. If your child is going to be away sick, please let the office know ASAP so we can remove their order form. Photolife ask that no special requests be made to bring in and photograph sick children.

Tomorrow’s assembly is at 2.15 pm in the hall for the Taonga and Mana Syndicates, and will be hosted by Room 12.

Lost Property
Lost Property will be on display outside the staffroom this afternoon and tomorrow. Any unclaimed items after the end of school on Friday will be passed on to charity. We make every effort to return named items to children. Please remember to name your children’s clothing.

If you have any unwanted pegs, we would love to have them for hanging the lost property.

2018 Enrolments
If you have a child starting with us next year and you live within our school zone, please collect an enrolment pack from the school office. To enable us to better plan, we would appreciate all enrolments for next year completed by Wednesday 18th October. If you have any questions, please contact the office via email
