ACHIEVEMENTS / NOTICES:
WINTER IS HERE!
That time of the year again, for winter woollies, extra layers and keeping warm and toasty.
- Mmm comfort food but not too much for spring is just around the corner.
- Some may even be fortunate to hit the slopes on a skiing holiday.
We pray this winter season will bring quality times of rest and contemplation.
May you enjoy this season and be open to see the beauty and blessings, yes even winter can bring to you.
26 MAY 2021 – YEARS 7 & 8 KAIKOHE NORTHLAND KIWI TAG TOURNAMENT:
The Year 6, Year 7 and Year 8 tamariki played in the first Year 7 & 8 Northland Kiwi Tag tournament held in our own backyard, Kaikohe Rugby Fields.
- They played hard to the very end and did not give up on our Lord Jesus Christ and because of this they humbly came away as the winners of the tournament.
- They showed true perseverance and strength and most of all they declared the name of Jesus loud and proud. “JESUS ON THREE, 1, 2 , 3 JESUS!!!”

18 JUNE 6.30pm – 9.30 pm BATTLE OF THE BANDS – TURNER CENTRE KERIKERI:
- This year, we have timed the event to fit snugly in between SmokeFree RockQuest qualifying rounds and finals so that bands who are entering SFRQ can double up on their chances to perform, and to win!
- We are expecting a high volume of entries this year, so please encourage your young musicians to get their entries in as soon as possible. Places are given on a first-come, first-served basis.
The competition is open to teen bands:
- Between the ages of 11 and 18
- Who live in the Far North between Whangarei and Cape Reinga
- With at least THREE band members, and at least TWO members playing instruments
- With TWO songs – originals or covers, or a mix of the two – up to 8 minutes total
- Paying an entry fee of $10 per band (Entry money will be awarded as part of the People’s Choice prize)
- As there is a People’s Choice award by secret ballot, it would be advantageous for the bands to bring along their fan base.
We’ll be awarding CASH prizes to the TOP 3 bands, and a PEOPLE’S CHOICE winner voted for by the audience.
- On top of that there will be special awards for BEST VOCALIST, BEST INSTRUMENTALIST and BEST BAND PERFORMANCE
The panel of judges will be music industry professionals, and they will be looking for musical tightness, originality and entertainment value.
- Cover songs are welcome, but it helps if they have an original twist to them. Judging will be weighted towards original compositions.
- There is a lot more information on our website, including Rules, an Online Entry Form and Judging Guidelines.
- Please find a poster attached. Any questions, please get in touch!

3 AUGUST – ACCORD TEACHER TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT DAY:
With the changes to NCEA being undertaken currently, there are planned days scheduled for teachers in our region to take part in specific training opportunities – these days are being called Accord Days and schools are asked to run them as Teacher Only days.
- I support the intent of these days and that for the students who able to, to work from home on these days.
- I have decided however, that we will not close the school, and that for whanau who are not able to support their children with working at home, to send them to school for supervised learning.
- We are offering the same opportunity to our Primary Staff for these days and again, the school remains open for supervised learning for those who need to come to school.
- The 2nd of the Accord days will take place: Tuesday 3rd August.
The last date we are aware of is:
- 30th November Tuesday

SCHOOL BUSINESS AS USUAL NOTICES / REMINDERS:
LUNCHES BY LIBELLE – IN SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAMME:
HEADS UP – LICE!:
- A head louse can survive up to 4 weeks on a person’s head and lay 10 eggs a day!
- Lice can multiply fast so 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.
- 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.
