DRURY SCHOOL
Growth through Learning
Dear Parents/Caregivers,
Kia ora, greetings from school in Week 5 of a very busy and
enjoyable third term. Congratulations to our tremendous
School choir, trained by Mrs Robinson. They represented
our school extremely well last week in a matinee
and two evening performances as part of the
biennial Papakura Schools Music Festival held
at Kelvin Road School hall.
WELCOME to Alina McPike and her family. Alina started
with us recently in Room 1.
3-WAY CONFERENCING:
These conferences form an integral part in the school-home
liaison partnership and provide valued communication,
explanation and support for students, parents and teaching
staff. It was pleasing to see that approximately 93%
attended our second 3-Way Conferencing interviews
recently. Any parents who were unable to attend may wish
to contact their child’s teacher to arrange a suitable time to
speak with them.
CALF CLUB DAY:
DRURY SCHOOL
 A
reminder that this major
CALF CLUB
annual event is now just over
2014
five weeks away - Saturday 27
September. Our FODS parents
are again working really hard
towards making this the successful and really enjoyable
day that it always is. Please help out in any way that you
can. Thanks.
 A FODS MUFTI DAY will be held on Friday 29 August in
order to collect items for Calf Club raffles and stalls. A
separate notice will be sent home shortly containing more
details on this. In the meantime any donated items and
products for Calf Club Day, or books and preloved clothing
can be left at the school office.
 Please return your entry forms for the calf, lamb, goat, dog
and small animal section of Calf Club day to the office as
soon as possible.
 Don’t forget the “My Animal & Me” photo competition as
well.
