Dear Everyone,

NEWS FROM THE MUSSEL AND SEAFOOD COMMITTEE

With only 17 days left in the year, the list of tasks set to be done, seems to be getting longer instead of shorter! The place is buzzing; with rehearsals for the big farewell to Mr "B" in full swing. Having sat in this seat for nearly a term now, I can really appreciate all the great things Mr Buutveld has done for our school. It is a happy place that radiates energy and optimism. We are all looking forward to the festive season now and I wish to publicly thank my taff who have helped make the transition from Ernie to me as smooth as possible. It is surprising how many people are employed to keep a school operating. From the Board of Trustees team to the Teachers and Teacher Aide, the cleaner and the grounds persons, the list goes on. Then there are the volunteers who help us in so many ways. The Grandparents and Parents, the specialist Teachers and the folk who facilitate our Professional Development. Somehow the swimming pool gets attended to and the lawns are mowed. The list is endless. Planning for next year is coming along nicely and we hope to share some aspects of our 2018 shape with you before we break up. Things will be tight with less staff and only three classrooms operating but we will be open for business again on 30 January. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest Season's Greetings to you all. Thank you for accepting me into the Havelock community and making me feel so welcome. Kind regards, Tony

HAVELOCK SCHOOL PLAYGROUND UPDATE 1/12/17

Glynnis Paton has been working hard with a lot of local support to complete the sensory side to the playground. There will be a music station, decorated totem poles, double dolphin weather vane, outdoor library with books/magazines for all ages, a friendship seat and games. Many thanks to Glynnis and her team. Planting has been done of the mounds and further plants have been kindly donated by Selmes Road Garden Centre but due to the current dry will be looked after at the school until autumn planting. The plants are growing and weeding of the mounds is ongoing. The large slide is awaiting construction but due to the need to move the little playground up to the top to be able to install the slide we have been waiting until we can open the playground or part of, so that the kids still have something to play on in the meantime. Next steps getting tiger turf under the mussel floats (Thank you to Sanfords for the new floats) and circular monkey bars and soft fall under the swing area to enable one end to be opened while we wait for the funnel web climbing tree and a wobbly wood climbing frame. We gratefully received a $40,000 grant from the MDC recently which enables us to order these last 2 large items required to finish the play equipment component of the playground although we will be looking for some builders to put them together when they arrive! There is a 12-16 week delivery time for these and once installed the playground project will be almost complete. We are on the lookout for some large Macrocarpa to be cut into block seating around the mounds, all shapes and sizes of the soft round orange fishing buoys and someone to design and build a thank you to our supporters. Havelock Board of Trustees.

Farewell Mr “B”

SAFETY ISSUE Safety in the school grounds is always a concern and we note that there is a situation in the carpark that could lead to an accident.

The carpark is not always supervised by our staff as we are kept busy around the school buildings and the play ground. Sometimes cars park on the drive way and it is then difficult to spot a small child who may have wandered off across the carpark.

Please keep the driveway clear at all times. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861
