KERIKERI BUS RUN
Due to the Kerikeri Road repairs starting next week on the 25th Oct for 3 weeks, there will be changes to the bus schedule.
In the morning the bus will leave 15 minutes earlier at 7.45am from the Proctor Library.
All pick ups along Kerikeri Road in the morning will have to come to the Library for pick up, as the bus will go via Waipapa to Waimate then Kaikohe.
In the afternoon the bus cannot stop along Kerikeri road so all Kerikeri Rd drop offs (Old Packhouse market and Hospice) the parents will have to collect from the Library.
NCEA STUDENT NOTICE
Senior secondary students and whanau: Please note: we do not have exam study leave!
Nga mihi mahana,
Kia Ora te Whanau,
Our school has been selected to perform in the Mana KuraTahi kapahaka regionals, which is a competition for the year 1-8 children. The competition will be held in Whangarei at the Kensington Stadium on Saturday 12th November 2022 at 9am. This is a huge opportunity for our tamariki to experience performing at this level but most importantly, an opportunity to minister and preach the Word of God, through waiata, to a wider audience. Worship in Te Reo Moari! We are having a dress rehearsal on Thursday 10th November 2022 in our school hall at 1pm. There will be a gold coin Koha/donation at the door and a sausage sizzle after the performance. This is an important performance for our tamariki to get confident in front of a big audience and to help with their nerves too.

“Did you hear that?” Evelyn scanned her surroundings in a panic; the whispers echoed all throughout the old, abandoned building.. “Hear what?” I furrowed my brows, shining my torch around the room. No one else was in this building. It had been long forgotten, nothing but a sad stack of bricks and wood, but to us it was another adventure; a place worth exploring.
“I don’t know and I don’t think I want to find out. Let’s go.” Evelyn ushered from behind me. We rushed towards the door we’d used to enter. The door handle had been snapped off. We would have to find another exit. “Hey Evelyn, did we break the handle?” I questioned picking the broken metal piece from the floor. No reply. “Evelyn?” Only darkness. “Evelyn, this isn’t funny!” Objects clattered. A shrill scream was let out until it was silent once again. The silence was so, so loud.
I heard whispers, they were becoming more and more like loud cries, warning me to get out – warning me that danger is near. The darkness became more and more suffocating. My heart pounded in my ears. My feet moved hurriedly, looking for any escape route. I paused. The thudding footsteps behind me didn’t. I snatched my inhaler from my pocket taking deep breaths. Whatever lived in this building was twice the size as me, maybe even triple. “I’ll give you one minute to find an exit.” The mysterious voice spoke up, I inhaled deeply.
“Then what?” I managed a meek reply.
“You heard the scream of your friend. I’m sure you’re smart enough to know exactly what will happen,” The silhouette of a tall man stood by the door. “Start.”
I despise running. My calves burned as I ran up the staircase, my breathing was wheezy and my vision blurry with tears. There is no way I can escape, why do I even try at this point? The small bright side is that even if I take longer than a minute, there are a lot of possible hiding places. Windows: Barricaded. Doors to the balcony: Barricaded. Barricaded, barricaded and barricaded, the word haunted my mind. I sprinted up the final staircase. One window wasn’t barricaded. Very high from the snowy ground, but definitely not impossible. “5!” The countdown had started. “4!” I ran backwards away from the window. “3!” I charged forward. “2!” My shoulder came in contact with the glass. “1!”
I landed feet first on the snow, my ankle twisting in a way it was most likely not supposed to. I held my arm, limping away from the building as fast as I possibly could. I panted trying to get a hold of my breathing. I looked back. Seeing the man smiling at me, I grimaced. The moonlight shone over his face. He backed away from the shattered window, letting darkness consume him once again. The trees bowed in the direction of the rundown home, vanishing, like it never existed. No one will ever believe me.
I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.
For nothing will be impossible with God.

With options for all levels of ability, fitness, and competitiveness, the NZTG has something for everyone so why not get a big bunch of your colleagues (or the whole team!!) together and GET YOUR GAME ON!
Sport is a big part the landscape in NZ schools and tertiary institutions. It develops culture and pride and is a key engagement vehicle for students in learning, in their institution, and within their wider community. Sport can contribute to academic and social outcomes with clear links to key curriculum competencies including Relating to Others, Participating & Contributing and Managing Self.
NZTG seeks to use sport to provide schools and tertiary institutions with team building and networking opportunities, creating positive health and well-being experiences for staff and encourages all to be a part of providing quality sport opportunities for their students.
