Thank you to everyone who committed your time and energy to assisting at our EOTC Camps. The weather was duly inclement as expected in Spring. Resilience was demonstrated by students and adults alike….go you! At this time of the year the EOTC team reflect, review and make recommendations for improving these Camps in 2023. Fundraising and organising for these Camps to be successful is a mammoth task. Thank you to the parents who have contributed their time to do this. You are AMAZING! It appears a small group of willing parents continue to participate; a group that is diminishing each year. Please reflect on how you can organise time to assist with fundraising in 2023. Every little bit of voluntary time helps.
Our current Parent Teacher Association (PTA) members will be standing down at the end of this year. This is concerning as this group has positively impacted on raising funds for the spider frame, playground equipment and supporting staffing over their time. Fundraising is integral to providing donations that support school organisation and programmes. PLEASE contact Jen Mitchell, current PTA president if you are interested in joining this group in 2023. Without this group, we will not be able to organise a School Fair or continue supporting our school. Jen’s details are listed below in this newsletter.
It is vital that you keep yourselves informed of the events and activities planned for the next 2 weeks. Teachers’ newsletters provide the information you need to prepare your children to participate. We are noticing some students are arriving at school unprepared which is upsetting for them when they see their peers. This newsletter also provides dates and times of upcoming events.
I am off to Auckland this evening with a case full of presents to pop under the tree for my family. I love this time of the year. See you all on Monday!
Have a wonderful weekend!
