DOUBLE DOLPHIN AWARDS The Term 3 theme for Kiwi Can is Integrity and can be broken into three major components – Honesty, Responsibility, Reliability. The following were recently recognised with a DOUBLE DOLPHIN Award relating especially to the Responsibilty aspect of Integrity.

Congratulations to

Ellie Gatjens Emma McCauley Hannah Roborgh Sara Aston-Butterfield Ashelyn Horton-Smith

Responsibilty – thinking for themselves, being aware of what needs to be done (and doing it) means these students are developing excellent self-management skills. Great job – keep it up! 47 Main Road Havelock 7100 Marlborough Ph +64 3 574 2106 Fx +64 3 574 2123 Em admin@havelock.school.nz In www.havelock.school.nz

After reading the selected book, students take a quiz that reveals their level of understanding for that book. Each quiz they pass generates points and these points accumulate until the student reaches the required number of points to be awarded a certificate. (Blue = 25, Red = 50, Bronze = 100)

FROM GUM TREES TO CASH‌ We have had several orders for wood but not yet any volunteers for splitting, loading or delivering the gum. To place your wood order, call the office and leave your name and contact details. If you are able to supply a splitter and/or help split the rounds, or load the trailer, etc, please phone the office and we will get back to you to sort out dates and times that suit.

Kenepuru Writing Snakes Can't Climb. Snakes can't climb because they don't have legs. Because they were made to slither. Snakes can slither up hills. By Jack My Mum Can't Sing My mum can't sing. Every time my mum tries to sing she is horrible. When she whispers she can't sing. She was practising at lunch, she was getting better at it. The next day she was great at singing. She was dancing around and she was happy. By Drew

Pelorus Writing First, Kathy spent fifteen minutes practicing her aerials on the trampolines but then she mysteriously started to struggle. So she took a break, she went home to her house on Budge street to find the freshest blackberries in the fridge. Once she had gobbled the whole punnet of blackberries up, she strolled back to the gym to work on her aerials on the floor. Ten minutes later... Crash! "Oww!" yelped Kathy, everyone in the gym came rushing over to see what had happened. Luckily one of the adults that were exercising was also a paramedic, so she knew straight away that Kathy had broken her leg. The manager of the gym rang the ambulance and the other two members of Kathy's family, her Mum and Dad. By Tayla I hear a faint hum in the distance. I grab my gear and wait at the helicopter pad. About two minutes later the trees are getting thrashed around violently as Mark's Hughes 500 lowers skilfully onto the big red H. Once the rotors finally settle into resting position and Mark flicks all his switches and checks his gauges, he greets me with a warm smile. "How ya goin Jake?" he bellows as he bobs out of the cock-pit. "Good thanks mate" I reply. "The fly in was beautiful Jake. I've checked the weather for the week and it's absolutely primo for hunting". I stow my gear in the cavity of the Hughes, grab my dogs, and jump in. My friend Mark is roughly six feet tall and is by far the best helicopter pilot I know. By Jordan FUNDRAISING FROM SUPPERS AT THE TOWN PLAY A total of $875.80 was raised for Pelorus class Wellington trip. Big thanks to Jo Hegglun who supplied baking for both weeks and Shelley Munro and Caz Skipper who supplied baking for the 2 nd week. Big thanks to Jessie, Skye and Hannah who helped clear up each night (at 10pm!) and thanks to Jo Hegglun, Anika, Ayla and Drew who helped on our 2nd night. And Ellie who helped on one night.

Mobile Community Oral Health Clinic is visiting again! The Mobile Community Oral Health Clinic will soon be in our area once again. As in the past it will be sited at Havelock Primary School from Monday 5th – Friday 23rd Sept 2016. The brightly decorated Mobile COHC houses two fully equipped clinics each staffed by a dental therapist and a dental assistant who are supported by modern x-ray, computer and sterilsation facilities on board. The Community Oral Health Service operates from 8 am to 5 pm five days per week, and fifty weeks per year giving parents more choice as to when they can accompany their children. Nelson Marlborough District Health Board Oral Health Educator Esme Palliser said “Parents have also enjoyed the ability to group book all their children to be seen at the same visit, and talking directly to the dental therapist about good oral health care for their family”. The Mobile clinic makes two visits a year to our area and parents will be contacted by telephone to arrange appointments for their children. If families need to change these appointments or they have recently shifted or changed their phone number they should phone 0800 833 849.
