The four groups are red, blue, green and yellow and the children will

VACANCY ON THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES:
Due to a vacancy on the Board of Trustees, the Board has decided
to fill the casual vacancy with our co-opted member Seleana Crichton. If within 28 days of publication of this notice written requests
to fill the vacancy by election are received to the school office
from at least 10% of eligible voters, the Board must hold a by-election. If 10% or
more voters have not called for an election, Seleana Crichton will become an elected
parent at the end of the 28 day notification period.
CHRISTCHURCH GONDOLA AND TIME TUNNEL TRIP:
In the first week of Term 2 we have planned to take each class to the Christchurch
Gondola and Time Tunnel. This is the final outing funded by the Red Cross and will
serve as a great starter activity for our term’s writing and inquiry learning. The trips
are planned on different days to avoid waiting too long to get onto
the gondola or to get into the Time Tunnel.
