Reminder about the Pūkana Whānau Day - this Saturday 9th November
Our kapa haka will be performing at the National Library for the Pūkana Whānau Day on Saturday 9th November from 11.30am. This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our kapa haka talents and perform outside of school. Children can perform in kapa haka and then stay to enjoy the rest of the performances and activities. If your child will be performing please let us know here. There are lots of activities to explore after our kapa haka performs and it will be lots of fun for the whole family. Children can wear their Ridgway t-shirts for this performance.
School Sports Day - Thursday 14 Nov 9:30 - 12:30
This is a fun day held at school where all children get to take part in different athletics and fun activities. Parents are welcome to come along too but be warned, you may be dragged into a wheelbarrow or sack race or a Teachers vs Parents event!
Book Week - 18 - 22 November
Book Week is coming up in Week 6. We have authors coming in to read and talk to the children, the Scholastic Book Fair, literary quizzes, a book character parade and much more!
During Book week the library will be closed at morning tea and lunchtime and we'll be doing our annual stocktake. Please check under the bed, in the wardrobe, and anywhere else where library books might be hiding and return all books to school.
