|Dear Parents and School Supporters,|
Calf Club - Thank you
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to calf club. Every contribution big and small helped us to raise somewhere between $45 - S48k. The final figure is yet to be determined once all the expenses have been accounted for. BUT what an awesome effort!
We would also like to thank all the calf club stall coordinators for their work and a special thank you to Kylie Faulkner for leading the team. You may be aware that Kylie is stepping down from her Calf Club Coordinator's role. We need someone to step up, please. Kylie will happily support you for 2020. The role could also be shared by two people. One being the front person on the day and the other handling all the logistics. Please let us know asap if you will consider this role.
Bombay School....Something in the water...The stork is coming back this way...
We are delighted to announce that Ms Taylor will be expecting her first child in 2020! Hearty congratulations to Rachel and Caleb and their whanau.
This is also excellent news for Bombay School. We have several teachers with young families. They invest themselves into the school community. Their children come to this school and they have a vested interest in ensuring that our school delivers the best it can. From a strategic perspective, this contributes to the health of the school and should be welcomed by all. It is in part for this reason, and because of our school values, that we support them to balance the demands of young families with their roles as teachers. You will note that we have several teachers working on flexible working arrangements of three to four days per week. This will continue through to the end of 2020. Many of these teachers will then return to full time five day roles.
School leaders will be holding a coin trail on Friday 25 October. These funds will be used to purchase paint for an art piece for the hall. Please support them by sending along any coins that you could spare.
Ice Skating - this weekend
The ice skating event has been a huge hit with the children.
Ice Skating will continue this Saturday 19 October. 10-4pm.
$8 per child.
Food stalls between 10.30am and 1.30pm.
Bring the family along for a fun filled event.
Labour Weekend and Calf Club Day in Lieu
Please remember that school is closed 28 and 29 October. KAS will run a care service from 6.30am to 6pm on 29 October for those who need it. Please scroll through the calendar in this newsletter. There are some important dates that you may want to note. For example - the year 8 dinner, prize giving and when reports are sent home.

Hunua Camp Info
Sadly we will not be offering Friday lunches this term.
We would like to thank everyone that supported us through purchasing the lunches. We raised $976 to go towards the Pool Fund. This really helps!
We would like to run this again starting First Term next year, but we are desperate for some more help to make it happen. If you think you could help us, please get in touch. It's quick and simple, we just need some back up assistance to keep it flowing.
