Putting in the last burst of energy to get over the finish line of 2019, let’s remember above all else “Jesus is the reason for the season”.
May we reflect upon His goodness, the many blessings we’ve received; the important lessons we’ve learned; Holy Spirit’s strength and comfort that lifted us up and gave us all we needed to overcome, even in the face of great adversity.
Celebrate your victories, enjoy fellowship with the Lord and one another, making the most of every precious moment and connection. There’s much to reflect upon and be grateful for.
May your Christmas and New Years Holiday Break be abundantly blessed and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2020.
Praise God and congratulations to Keisha Benedito, Mikaere Jo Tito-Brown Jenniffer Galvin, Maata Kingi, Psalm Cassidy and Julia Chase who passed their Learners Licence tests.

ONGOING SCHOOL BUSINESS:
We are tracking attendance closely and rewarding classes with the highest percentage attendance of a three-week period.

- A Reminder to Parents to phone the School Office every morning your child is absent from school, to advise the absence reason.
- Please do not get offended if you receive a phone call or letter requesting reasons for student absence.
- Failure to contact the school with the reason may result in your child being noted as ‘Truant’
- If children are late arriving at school, they MUST sign in at the Front Office.
- A reminder too that constant lateness is also viewed as a form of Truancy and is also being monitored. It’s not a good pattern for our children to get into.
- If they leave the School Grounds, during school time, they MUST sign out at the Front Office.
“He waka eke noa”
“Everyone working together”
Thank you very much to all parents, as students are finally conforming to the standards of uniform. Thank you very much for your help.
Next year we will be ensuring that all students from Year 1 – 13 will be in the correct uniform.

KERIKERI CRICKET CLUB:
Cricket registrations are now open for kids who would like to play B grade cricket for the Kerikeri Cricket Club over the summer. B grade covers all school children in Years 1-6 and is played at Kerikeri High School on Friday nights from 4.30 pm. There is also one practice night per week. The season starts the first week in November and runs through til the end of term 4. It will recommence in February and run through until mid-March.
Children are divided roughly into Year 1-2, Year 3-4 and Year 5-6 depending on experience. The youngest kids use a softball and are introduced to basics around batting and bowling. The middle group start the season with a softball and move to a hardball as their skills progress and the oldest group play with a hardball (there is flexibility to move groups depending on how the kids go).
When registering you will need to decide which group your child will play and whether you would like to purchase a KKCC cap for them (these are optional). Please feel free to contact Sarah if you need further clarification before you register.
Kind regards, Sarah Jackson
