It was unveiled during the celebrations in its new location and featured an updated list of past pupils meriting inclusion. Nominees are again being sought as we are aware of a growing number of past pupils whose names need to be added. If you or someone you know has achieved in their field of endeavour and you feel they could be acknowledged on the school honours board please take the time to send us the relevant detail and if possible contact details. THE GALLERY HAVELOCK May 28 is the opening night of the Lionel Jefcoate and Colin Wynn exhibitions. All welcome. This exhibition will run for two weeks. We are very fortunate to have Lionel’s work for this exhibition as it will then go to Dunbar Sloan in Auckland to be auctioned. The Gallery Havelock needs you. If you have a bit of spare time we are in need of a few more pairs of hands due to some of our lucky volunteers fleeing to warmer climes during the winter months.

PARENT/TEACHER COMMUNITY HUI WED 13 MAY 19:00 ~ SCHOOL HALL Hopefully this flyer would have got to your place last Thursday and you have arranged child care so you can join other parents and teachers discussing these topics. Parent/Teacher evenings are held usually once per term. With cooler evenings the temptation is to stay warm and cosy at home. Be reassured, the hall will be pre-warmed and the topics covered are bound to have significance for all. Afterwards of course we’ll finish with a cuppa. Come and join in the discussions about elements of the health programme, the Feuerstein Pilot, school transitions and what ERO thought about Havelock School.

UFB, RURAL BROADBAND & MOBILE BLACKSPOT INITIATIVE The Marlborough District Council is participating in Government funding applications for the Ultrafast Broadband, Rural Broadband Initiative and the Mobile Blackspot Fund. Part of the bid to the Government requires Marlburians to identify the connectivity issues in our community. The attached link is a survey that will outline what is requested in more detail https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/InternetConnectivity Please send this link to anyone else you think may be able to contribute – especially business owners, farmers and industry operators who want better connectivity. The survey closes on Monday 18 May 2015. If you need hard copies or have any questions please contact Katie Covell at the Marlborough District Council on (03) 520 7400. DID YOU KNOW? That some children only suck the toothpaste off their brush! Make sure all the surfaces of all their teeth and their gums are cleaned – outer, inner, upper, lower and the busy chewing surfaces. By teaching them to spit out the toothpaste, rather than rinsing it off, the fluoride also continues to strengthen their teeth. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

OLYMPIAN JOINS THE SCHOOL ASSEMBLY Ever wondered what happens to our Olympians of the past? Some of them become Olympic Ambassadors and move through the country meeting New Zealand children with the goal of having them aspire to great things even though they seem very distant, impossible or too hard. The school was kept spellbound for an hour recently when Niniwa Roberts, NZ Blacksticks player who participated in two Olympics, visited with them. The back story behind these world athletes is humbling and truly human as ordinary people take up extraordinary challenges and spend tremendous endeavour in striving to achieve them. Niniwa’s story was helped with some video as well and again, the Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

reality that sits behind these huge events is amazing; 10 000 athletes needing a new village built with of course full services, food halls three times the size of a rugby pitch, the emotion and pride when playing for your country, the pageantry of an opening ceremony and on it goes. One never knows, so if there is a spark lurking by way of talent, determination and desire in one of your own, do support them to pursue their dream and help them make it a reality. BOARD OF TRUSTEES Recently the board accepted the resignation of Lyndon Brownlee from the board. Elected in June 2013 Lyndon finishes after two years as trustee. His contribution will be more formally acknowledged at a future time. Given that a vacancy now exists, the board has resolved under section 105 of the Education Act 1989 to fill the vacancy by selection. If ten percent or more of eligible voters on the school roll ask the board, within 28 days of this notice being published, to hold a by-election to fill the vacancy, then a by-election will be held. Any eligible voter who wishes to ask the board to hold by-election should write to The Board Chair, Havelock School Board of Trustees, 47 Main Road Havelock 7100.
