This week we have sent attendance letters home for those children who have attended less than 80% of school this year. A reminder that 90% attendance or more is expected from the Ministry of education. You can check out your child’s attendance on their report that was emailed on Friday.

Congratulations to the children who got into my 100% club this term! They will have morning tea with me on Friday.

North Fuel:

North Fuel supply Bulk on farm fuel and lubricants for Farmers and Contractors throughout the Primary Sector in New Zealand. One way they give back to the community is via Schools and fundraising events. They also have a large BBQ Trailer for which they bring along for Schools to use on their event days. For every 100 Litres of fuel used by a contractor or farmer in our area they will donate 50 cents to Reporoa Primary School. Once we’ve reached $1,000.00 against our School, they let us know at which point we choose what package suits us best. We could choose between sports, IT and Stationary Packages.
