Last week was Anti-Bully week across the country and many schools and organisations celebrated this and took the opportuntity to dress up in PINK on Friday. Our assembly looked amazing with all of the pink and crazy hair styles on display. This week we have our school Cross country event and have our fingers crossed for some nice weather. We look forward to seeing parents and whanau at school cheering on our kids as they give 100% around the course.
On Thursday the 26th May our annual Welcome Bay School Cross Country will be held here at school. Please refer to the timetable below for approximate starting times. The postponement date will be Thursday 2nd June.
It is advisable that all students run their race in non-school uniform so please send your child/children to school with mufti clothes for their race. To get into the spirit of the day it would be great if our tamariki wore clothes that represent the colours of their house.
Kereru – Red, Falcon – Yellow, Kea – Green, Albatross – White, Blue Heron – Blue.
The P.T.A. will be selling Juicies at lunchtime for $1.
Part of the course will be run along the footpaths around the school so if you could help with supervision on the day please let Michelle Barker or your child’s teacher know.

Bully Free Week
Thanks so much to everyone who put in a huge effort to come to school on Friday wearing pink to celebrate anti-bullying week. We had some great outfits and hairstyles not just from the kids, but with some whacky teachers too! We have included some photos and hope that the week inspired some conversation at home about what bullying is and how we can all do our bit to make sure and learning community is place where everyone feels accepted and safe.
New Website and newsletter format
Remember to share with everyone you know about the newsletter format, we had a 50% open rate last week from 149 families and it would be great to grow this each week. Remember you can access the newsletter via an email link or directly through our website via the “Our school information” drop down menu.
Have a great week.
