Te Kura O Makarora Panui 14 March 2018 Swimming Reminder Swimming this week 12:30 start time , 16 and 23 March .
Investigating who lives in Makarora. I have asked children if they can interview a community or family member to get information for our theme on Makarora as a frontier . The information will be made public in presentations at assembly and will also be shared with Haast School, who are doing a similar task. If you have any photographs of Makarora places people or events in the past we would love to have a copy.
Sorry but yet another Power Outage There is a scheduled power outage Thursday 15 March 9am –3pm . I have checked again with several authorities who say the power will be off , so we are going with that. School will be closed for the day . I apologise for the inconvenience and confusion! I will be in touch again if the outage is postponed to Monday!
NOTE Anniversary holiday is next weekend ( Monday 26 March) and not this coming Monday. Haast Visit Haast School have invited us to attend an Outdoor challenge with themselves and Fox Glacier School on 10 April followed by an activities day with people from Shanty Town at Jacksons Bay on the 11 April. We discussed this at the last BOT meeting and while everyone may not be able to attend both days it appeared we could give the option of both or 1 day depending on parent availability. We would stay overnight at Haast School and they would help us organise a barbecue tea . The purpose of the trip is to continue to build a collaborative relationship with them as well as find out about Haast as a frontier town, which is our focus for the year.
