Dear Parents,

Message from Marieka Morcombe

Community Liaison - Bombay School Community Project

Kia Ora All Bombay School families,

The Bombay School Community Pool project is now in full swing. We have information to share with all of you now. The decisions we are about to make, impact all of us and we want to make sure we use all of your collective ideas to create the best possible pool for this generation and many to follow.

This project will be completed in 2-3 years, you will get to enjoy it very soon!

We understand that not all of you can make it to all the meetings but we still value your input. Please let us know the best way to convey information to you and get your feedback back to us.

The options are:

A. An information evening in the hall, open to the whole school and community.

B. Email the information to you.

C. Record a video and email out a link for you to watch.

D. Another option you feel would be best_____.

Please let us know what you prefer by completing  this 10 second survey .  Within each of these options we would update everyone with the information we have gathered and the decisions to be made and would ask for your feedback.

Thank you for your feedback

Kind Regards

Marieka Morcombe

ANZAC ceremony 25 April, in front of the Arch, has been


You are encouraged to go to Pukekohe – dawn or civic service.

Whist there was some comment negatively towards this proposal there appeared to be sound reasons for the concerns surrounding security. Once explained it was relatively straight forward to make the stand I did on our behalf. Core to this is the ability of the police to be on site at the specified time of the events and being able to cover all ANZAC ceremonies in the area is just not able to be achieved. - Ian Grayson - President, Bombay Lions.   Poppies are available in the school hall tonight (Thursday 11 April) and tomorrow at the office. Proceeds go to the RSA.

Please delete your old App. It has this logo. The new App has this logo  we are working with the provider to change back to our own logo but apparently this is not an easy fix.  

Farewell Kate Mulligan

This morning, we bid a sad farewell to Mrs Kate Mulligan.  She has made a fantastic contribution to our school.

Staff organised a surprise morning tea and bouquet of beautiful flowers accompanied by some "liquid refreshment."

The farewell card to Kate said it all:

" Dear Kate, you have been a wonderful friend and colleague to us all.  We hope that our paths cross again WHEN you return to Bombay.   You have made a huge contribution to our team."

The Extra Pudding award goes to Flynn A for amazing reading this week.

Well done Flynn - keep up the good work.
