THE KOS PROGRAMME You might recall this programme was foreshadowed as part of the invitation to the Parent/Teacher meeting last term which also covered consultation about the wider health programme and pubertal change. All classes will begin this important unit in Week 3 (next week) and endeavour to work through its themes promptly. Keeping Ourselves Safe (KOS) is a comprehensive child protection programme in which students learn and apply a range of safety skills that they can use when interacting with others. For more details on this programme, see the frequently asked questions (PDF, 66KB). Teachers will be using the resources the New Zealand Police recommend within a whole-school approach as described in the intervention planning tool (PDF, 321KB). Keeping Ourselves Safe has been designed to give students the skills to cope in situations involving abuse. It has three overall aims: • to develop and strengthen children’s skills to keep themselves safe with other people; • to support and encourage abused children to get help from caring adults; • to make teachers and parents/caregivers more aware of the need to keep children safe from abuse by adults or other children.

Keeping Ourselves Safe will be taught by your child’s teacher, with support from the local Police School Community Officer as required. To be successful, Keeping Ourselves Safe needs your help and support. Your child may have homework activities to work on with you. It is important that you participate as much as possible and talk to your child about what they have been learning. This will help reinforce the messages the school is giving, and help your child to use his or her new skills with confidence. Please contact the school if you would like any more information about the programme or about child abuse. TABLE TENNIS TOURNAMENT Marlborough Primary/Intermediate Schools table tennis tournament. Sunday 2 August 9am start - Simcox Stadium. Open to all children up to and including Year 8. You do NOT have to belong to a club to enter. Separate boys and girls events, lots of prizes.

CANDIDATES FOR OUTWARD BOUND Every year the Havelock Lions Club arranges sponsorship for a young person aged between 18 and 25 to attend a classic Outward Bound course. Funding for this comes from the Lions Club and from First Light Trust so that any young person who lives in the Pelorus area can be selected. The course runs for 21 days and during this time our candidate will experience all outdoor elements and activities Outward Bound has to offer including sailing, kayaking, bushcraft and navigation. However the most important aspect of the course will be the realisation that our candidate can rise to the challenge realising his or her potential and learning that, with perseverance, dreams can be achieved. Our candidate will: 1. Challenge him/herself and push limits 2. Reflect, discover what is important to them and determine their future direction 3. Learn about themselves from both success and failure to take their confidence and motivation to the next level 4. Discover what it takes to create effective relationships and be part of a successful team 5. Develop a stronger sense of personal responsibility in responses to real and challenging situations. If you know of someone who will benefit from this course please get them to contact Debbie Healy. Her phone number is DDI 520 6262, mobile 021 284 2424 and her email address is greenprescription@marlboroughpho.org.nz Applications close on Friday 28 August 2015. Candidates will be interviewed and all candidates will be advised who the successful person is by 11 September.

7:30 Thursday 30 July 2015 HAVELOCK BOWLING CLUB Debbie Stone - Chair for the Havelock Mussel Festival

There are constitutional changes proposed for adoption at this meeting - for details visit www.havelockmusselfestival.co.nz

EXPLORERS As some of you know there is an explorers group operating in our midst. This is a Scouts type group run by volunteers for boys (sorry girls you’ll have to start a Guides type group). Its purpose is to give the boys opportunities to explore and learn new practical skills. We are a small exclusive group as that gives us more freedom to do a wider variety of activities especially when transport is needed. For more information about this group please contact Piers Throssell at PJThrossell@gmail.com Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

MID-YEAR TRIANGULAR CONFERENCES These formerly concluded at the end of last term with all students having some attention focussed on them and their progress and goals. Should further dialogue be useful at any time please make contact with the respective class teacher and arrange a good time to meet. Thanks for making the effort. TERM THREE THEMES The whole school is working towards the Taiopenga (event/celebration) Kapa Haka to be staged in Blenheim very early in Term 4. Poi, waiata and haka are being prepared along with classroom activities around legends and associated arts. Also students in Wakamarina and Pelorus are learning songs for the Marlborough Combined Schools’ Music Festival which will be in concert the last Monday of this term - it includes some cool dance moves… plenty to practice. INTEGRITY Kiwi Can is also underway already with the theme centred around Integrity and all the associated values around it… Doing the right thing… even when no one is watching! Please reinforce this at home as different contexts can determine differing expectations hence the second part of catch phrase. Students have been working hard to understand just how it manifests in and beyond the classroom. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

HCA NEWS In a recent article on the Havelock Boardwalk the 20 July Havelock Community Association (HCA) meeting was incorrectly advertised as being a public meeting regarding the Havelock Boardwalk Project. Unfortunately, the error was not recognised with sufficient time for corrective action to be taken. The HCA would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience to those who turned up to the 20 July meeting expecting a meeting solely on the Havelock Boardwalk Project. It is recommended that interested community members visit the HCA office, or frequent the HCA Facebook page where information on current and upcoming events can be found: https://www.facebook.com/havelockcommunityassociation From this month you will also find all the HCA minutes and information notices on this Facebook page. Hans is looking for new people to join the Boardwalk Committee. If you are interesting in being part of this established group, please pop in to the HCA office and touch base with Hans. ‘Havelock Branding’ is being explored at present as part of quantifying the region of Marlborough so that specific destinations, such as Havelock, can be promoted. Smart and Connected’s Cathy Bell is working with Hans Nielson and both are looking for interested parties from the community to join them in finding different ideas on how to promote Havelock. If you are interested, please pop by the HCA office and have a chat with Hans. At the HCA meeting on 20 July 15 Glynnis Paton spoke of a proposal for the beautification of Havelock. Both she and Liz Matthews have done some great work and have come up with many eye-catching ideas. They are looking at encouraging the community to establish some kind of Havelock Enhancement Working Group. It is early days but if you have any ideas or want to be part of a group such as this, please pop into the HCA office to hand in your details so that they can be passed on to Glynnis and Liz.
