Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations. All this is put in your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honour it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. Albert Einstein

PLAY SPACE/S SUBMISSIONS CLOSE 31 AUGUST

If you haven’t already it would be timely to make a point of having a close look at the A1 posters displayed in the hall giving a hint of what is planned for our re-vamped adventure playground. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

The concept has moved beyond the current area and has taken into account the wider play space/s within a re-landscaped environment. The concept is bold but works with existing elements and takes themes from the wider Sounds environment… a very exciting set of concepts.

Comments and submissions are welcome by 31 August and may be made in any form. Submission papers are available in the hall, from the office and are also on line along with the concepts. You will find them under Admin on the web site… follow the links and see what is envisaged. Students are quite excited despite the long time in getting to this point. They are keen to see whether the elements they suggested are included. Ben Roborgh is the board’s Play Space/s Convener and comments etc may also be made directly to him. See paper for contact details.

MUSIC FESTIVAL ~ MON 21 SEPT

Over forty Year 3 - 8 pupils are working hard learning lyrics and melodies for the eighteen songs on this year’s programme. Two years ago it was a grand night and certainly a festival of choral highlights. It is hoped this high standard can again be attained again with the two hundred students from other Marlborough schools on the last Monday of this term in the Civic Theatre. Over four nights, four large choirs of children from different Marlborough schools will be performing along with guest artists. Tickets went on sale at Ticket Direct on Monday 10 August. Get yours before they’re all gone - they sell out really fast… Adult $14 and Child (<17) $10.

SCHOOL SEAFOOD STALL MANAGERS Jason and Tracey Clark have done a wonderful job of co-ordinating the school’s seafood stall at the festival for the past couple of years and now feel it is time to hand over the role. They have put together a great set of notes and contacts to help this run on smoothly. We are canvassing our collective readership in the hope a couple of folk may step forward to manage this event. There are always a bevy of volunteers who roll their sleeves up closer to the time and the day itself runs very smoothly. If this sounds like something you could do then please don’t hesitate to put your hand up. Tracey and Jason are very happy to pass on their collective wisdom and experience to make this a success again in early 2016. Please contact either Jason, Tracey or Mandy in the school office. COUNTRY SCHOOLS’ TECH CHALLENGE Only two of our seniors made it into this special event staged by staff at the Marlborough Technology Centre on the 31st of August. Despite some early nerves, team work, tidiness and sticking to a plan, Jack and Jordan saw their scratch team placed second. The day was well organised with quirky elements keeping it exciting. A short video of an early activity was placed on the Pelorus Facebook page for all to enjoy.

THANK YOU The Gallery Havelock would like to thank Pub Charity and their local partner, the Havelock Hotel, for their kind donation of funds to purchase a heat pump for the gallery. This has now been installed and is being warmly appreciated by the volunteers and visitors who drop in.

HAERE RA - KA KITE ANO Recently we said farewell to Larissa Thornhill and Marcus Rimene-Solomon. We wish them continued success. TOD Teachers are working this Friday to become more proficient with Office 365, Microsoft Classroom and the cloud. There are huge advantages for the families and students enrolled. Working within the cloud online is increasingly becoming the norm and clearly an important element of a 21st Century education, but first teachers and the technicians have to make it work etc. Good luck!

NOW HERE’S A CHALLENGE Take in some serious altitude for a good cause – Drop Your Boss Skydive is here. Raising funds for Kiwi Can (FYD) at the top of the south! FYD Marlborough delivers proven programmes that bring positive change to the lives of young people in the area. Two of Havelock School’s teachers have been nominated to be dropped or pushed (we aren’t fussy) out of a plane - whilst it is flying at altitude. To ensure this will happen we need to raise some cash and needless to say, there is already a serious competition developing to see who can reach the target first. You can choose your favourite to be dropped/pushed by heading to the Givealittle link of choice below. You can also make your donation at school if you would rather.

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.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES WORKSHOP Recently trustees spent some valuable time together at Te Mahia working with REAP’s new Schools’ Adviser Margaret Giroux. Under scrutiny was the school’s charter which is being reviewed for its vision, general and local goals… how do they fit, looking ahead over the next three to five years. In due course, following a little word-smithing, a draft will be circulated for comment from the community. It would be fair to say trustees have a very good grip of this foundation document and of course will, a little later in the year look at priorities and set up action plans. Trustees also looked a little at succession planning as another election is looking in the earlier part of 2016. If you have a wish to learn more about this important governance role then please feel welcome to attend the next of any board meeting.

Did you know? Tooth Decay is a preventable disease. Decay or ‘holes in our teeth’ are caused by acid attacking our teeth after we eat or drink sugar. Plaque is the furry film that builds up on our teeth everyday and the bacteria in plaque reacts with the sugar in our drinks and food and turns it into acid. Encouraging your children to drink milk and water is a great start to reducing those ‘acid attacks.’ NELSON MARLBOROUGH COMMUNITY ORAL HEALTH SERVICE BLENHEIM & MARLBOROUGH MOBILE CLINIC 520 9922

EXPERIENCE A NEW CULTURE MAKE NEW FRIENDS AND LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE at home HOST FAMILY OPPORTUNITIES In January, students aged 14 – 19 years from over 25 countries will be arriving in New Zealand to study at local schools for 3, 5 and 10 months. Opportunities are available to act as a host family in a volunteer/unpaid capacity. Hosting can be on a temporary, short or long term basis. Host families help provide each student with the chance to study and experience life in New Zealand. This is a great way to practice your language skills, share your stories, learn about another country and culture, establish a lifelong link to a family in another country and contribute to international goodwill. Our students bring with them their own spending money, health insurance and a wonderful attitude and desire to learn about their new host country. Your whole family...and your relatives and friends...will grow and learn as you all get to know your new ‘son’ or ‘daughter’ from another land. If your family can offer a friendly, supportive and caring home environment, contact us today. To learn more about this opportunity call Student Exchange Australia New Zealand on 0800 440 079 or visit our website. http://studentexchange.org.nz/host-a-student FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES FOR THE FIT ‘n’ FREE COMMUNITY GYM
