Easter Fundraising

Mufti Day

Just a wee reminder that our Easter Fundraisers are due back by Friday.  Mufti day is on Friday,  please bring an Easter egg for our raffle.  Thanks to those who have already dropped in their eggs 🙂

The Raffle will be drawn on Wednesday 28th March and the cookies should be delivered around the 27th.

Cookie Time Fundraiser

We are very lucky to have be chosen for another limited edition cookie time fundraiser.  This time we have 2 tins of fun size choc-a-lot cookies for $20 and there is a prize for the school who raise the most money per student!

Order forms will be coming home with the newsletter on Friday and need to be back by the 16th March or you can order by contacting the office.

Severe Weather forecast for some areas this week

We are expecting some severe weather patterns in some areas of the country in the next few days. This weather pattern is the after-effect of Tropical Cyclone Gita and another weather pattern from further south of Aotearoa.

Watches and warnings are in place for a tropical low (ex-cyclone Gita) to hit parts of the South Island and Lower North Island tomorrow after mid-day. The forecast is for heavy rain and for gale-force winds in some parts of central Aotearoa. Otago and Southland are not predicted to be in the most affected areas, but I have provided the advice and guidance being shared across the country as a precautionary measure for your information, should it be needed.

Civil Defence tips:

Secure, or move inside, anything that could cause damage in strong winds
Close windows and doors, close curtains to prevent injury from breaking windows
Listen to the radio and follow the instructions of emergency services
Avoid non-essential travel during severe weather, and never drive through floodwaters
