KIA ORA TATOU, NGA MIHI NUI It was great to see fifteen parents join teachers and School Community Constable Josh Reidie on the 31st of August at our Health Hui. Although centred about the Keeping Ourselves Safe unit, numerous other health related topics within the school’s curriculum were discussed, especially cyber-safety. All participants found the exchange of ideas and knowledge interesting and informative, if a little sobering at times. It is always great to hear from parents during these sessions and as a result the Health Statement will receive some minor tweaks ie Parents of Year 4 pupils will in future years, receive information about Life Education programmes and have their children participate in the introductory sessions. Spring Festival / Pet Day schedules were distributed last week and should be at home providing discussion about entries, their preparation and the timeframes involved. In order to help guide both the organisation and judging, entries need to be at school by/on Thursday 28 Sep, the day before the term ends. Full information is contained in the schedule. From the beginning of Term 4 sunsmart hats and clothing will again be expected to be worn when outside. Sunsmart means… • A hat to protect the ears, nose and neck areas and will be of sufficiently dense material to achieve this • No singlets/string tops ie shoulders, back and upper arms at least are protected by suitably dense clothing Inadvertently we missed Georgia Illsley-Slape off the Cross-Country place-getters’ table in the last newsletter. Georgia was placed second in the Year Six Event. Congratulations. The Teacher Only Day recently saw staff complete the Workplace First Aid course held in the school hall. Other locals joined the session and in total seventeen moved through the Triple 1 Care activities tutored by Trevor. Thanks to REAP for making this available in Havelock. Thank you to those few who made it to last Sunday’s Working Bee at the playground - too few to complete the intended tasks unfortunately. Keep watch for another date. Likewise a big “thank you” to those who have volunteered to help out providing supper at the Havelock Theatre’s Pelorus Jack Up this week. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

CANDIDATES FOR OUTWARD BOUND The Havelock Lions Club arranges sponsorship for a young person aged between 16 and 18 to attend a Mind, Body and Soul 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, bush craft 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/her self 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 You will need to let Debbie know by Friday 22nd September 2017. Candidates will be interviewed and all candidates will be advised who the successful person is by 13th October. VOTING Early in KAIKŌURA You do not have to wait until Election Day (23 Sep) to vote in the General Election. You can vote from Mon 11 Sep to Sat 23 Sep but only some polling places will be open early and at certain times. Below are pasted the more local venues.
