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.

BEACH DAY BEACH DAY BEACH DAY
As an end of year reward the Primary school, and possibly some secondary classes, are heading to Paihia beach (Te Ti side) on Wednesday 7th December for our annual beach day. The school shall be providing sun screen for all tamariki as well as the broad brimmed hats for protection. School kai will also be available for tamariki. Additional whānau will need to bring their own kai.
We have always been able to make this trip happen thanks to parents providing transport and so again we are asking for support.
It is compulsory for all adults that are driving to have a full driving license and for the vehicle to have a current warrant of fitness. It takes approximately 2 weeks for a check to be completed. Please complete the reverse side of this letter and return it to the class teacher by Friday 18th November so that we can plan accordingly.

“Did you hear that?” Kalani looked around to see if anyone was there. Walking in the damp, dark bush, I hear footsteps that are coming closer and closer. I was too terrified to even carry on walking. Taking a deep breath, I think. What is gonna happen to me? I really don ‘t want to die.
Terrified, still wondering if I’m going to make it out of this bush by the day time, I stopped to sit down and take a rest, I must have fallen asleep. Next thing I knew it was the middle of the night and I was in a cave. Wait, what was that? A scream asking for help – wait I hear it again looking around no one there to be seen.
Walking really slowly and quietly, asking God to help me and making sure I get out of this cave safely. Looking around everywhere to see if anyone is following me. Suddenly I see a black shadow run past my eyes. My heart started beating in my ears. Walking so slow looking to see what that black shadow was, really hoping that I won’t end up dying in this cave alone. Suddenly I feel something grabbing my arm. I started to scream.
Screaming for my life I slowly turned around to see what grabbed my arm. There was no one there. So I carried on walking. I still had a really long way to go. I could not see what was in front of me. I thought my life was gonna end, when something grabbed my arm.
Carrying on walking and there were 2 pathways, I didn’t know which one to walk through. I went through the second one and there was that black shadow that ran past me again. I tried to act like I wasn’t scared, to see if the shadow would come to me. to see who it is.
The black shadow started walking towards me slowly. I looked at the shadow and started running and the shadow started running after me. I was running so fast like it was the end of my life because I didn’t even know who the black shadow was. I ran the wrong way and ended up at a dead end. Suddenly the black shadow walked up to me and everything went black.
I whispered please God look after my family and keep them safe.
I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.
For nothing will be impossible with God.

The New Zealand Teachers Games (NZTG) is an opportunity for educators and support staff to have fun with their colleagues, to compete seriously or socially and to enjoy each other’s company on the sports field. It provides a setting away from the pressures of school and tertiary institutions for all staff to relax, to network socially and professionally and to experience all the fun that being physically active, and part of a team can bring.
Open to anyone on the payroll of Early Childhood Centres, Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, and Tertiary Institutions. 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.
