Kia ora whanau, nau mai ki te wiki o te reo Maori!
We have a range of activities for the children to enjoy in their class as part of their daily routines as well as a few other wee extra bits and pieces happening throughout the week (including a whanau quiz) to celebrate Te wiki o te reo Maori.
Disco Postponed
With the announcement that we are to remain at Level two until 21st September we sadly need to postpone our disco that we had our fingers crossed for Thursday. We hope to be able to run this next term.
If you need to be on the school grounds at anytime please come to the office first.
Student Council Clothing Swap
The Student Council is running a ‘Clothing Swap’ next Thursday 24th September.
Do you have clothes at home that don’t fit your children anymore or that they just don’t wear? Then the Salford School Student Council would love to take them off your hands!
All clean, unwanted clothes (nothing with holes and no socks or underwear please) can be brought to school next Wednesday 23rd September. These will be sorted (into age / sizes) and then the classes can come through the hall on Thursday 24th September with children able to select up to 4 items of clothing to take home. (If there are lots of clothes left over children will be able to go through again but all clothing left over at the end of the day will be taken to the Salvation Army).
Jump Jam Competition
Our Jump Jam team is filming their competition entry tomorrow – good luck to the team for their filming. They have been working on their routine and precision since before lockdown in March. (Fantastic commitment and hard mahi shown by the team)
Gymnastics Festival
The Gymnastics Festival is also being held differently this year with the event being held at the Invercargill Gymnastic Club on Conway Crescent. We just found out our time this afternoon – 2:30 – 4:00pm on Sunday. Only one spectator per gymnast please due to Level 2 restrictions (a gold coin entry for spectators please -there will also be a very limited canteen available). We will have teams from one other school in the gym at the same time as our three Salford teams. A notice will come home tomorrow (if you don’t have one already).
There is still plenty happening at school as we make our way to the term break. It is great to see the children maintaining their effort and focus with their learning and look forward to celebrations after level 2.
Nga mihi nui.
