THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE: Week 6

“Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of ‘Your Name’, lead and guide me”.  

Psalm 31:3

TERMS AND HOLIDAYS:

  • Term 2 Ends      Friday        5th July 2019
  • Term 3 Starts    Monday 22nd July 2019

IMPORTANT NOTICES:

SCHOOL CARPARK:

Kia ora whanau ma. I would like to ask for your help to make our carpark a safer place for our students at the beginning and end of the day by making your drop-offs and pick-ups at the curb / footpath on the school side of the road. We are concerned because the carpark has become very busy at these times of the day and have had some close-calls. We do ask our children not to  walk through the carpark. Thank you for your help.  Nga mihi mahana.  David Rogers

INFLUENZA:

A number of students have been struck with the flu i.e. headaches tummy problems, vomiting etc.  It’s a bit of a nasty one.  Please ensure your child remains home if they are sick or experiencing flu-like symptoms.  Please ensure they have are 100% and ‘symptom free’ before returning to school.  Some returned to school too early and passed on the flu to others. Please be vigilant to stop this occurring so others, including vulnerable members of our school, whanau and community, who may struggle to recover from influenza symptoms are not harmed.

HEADS UP – LICE!:

Please check your children for head lice. Lice have nothing to do with personal hygiene.  Lice love everyone, including the cleanest kid in the class! A head louse can survive up to 4 weeks on a person’s head and lay 10 eggs a day!  Since that means lice can multiply fast, it’s a good idea to treat head lice quickly. Lice can be hard to get rid of.  Lice are insects, so the treatments for lice are basically insecticides or pesticides.  Medicated lice treatments usually kill the lice and nits, but it may take a few days for the itching to stop.  As an alternative to chemical treatments, you can try wet combing – using a fine-tooth comb on wet hair to remove nits and lice.  Kids Can has provided the school with nit combs and nit shampoo.  If you would like some, please ask at the School Office.

BULLYING:

   

Recently we have been concerned about an increase in verbal bullying between some students.  Unfortunately some are having a negative influence on others, who begin to follow suit.  Recent school speeches have frequently highlighted this issue.  Bullying is definitely not accepted as appropriate behaviour and stands outside of the ‘Special Christian Character Qualities’ of our School.  We would, therefore, ask that all parents would take the time to have a discussion with your children about the dangers and destructive impact bullying has on one and all.  Please encourage your children to be those who speak ‘Life’, build up and encourage others, that the Environment within our School would continue to remain a loving, united community.

ACHIEVEMENTS:
