Morena Everyone, I hope that you all had a productive week. The Pukeokahu kids have been very busy withScience and Art this week. We were very fortunate to visitthe TAS Science team last Friday, with the kidsinvestigating Light and Colour. Thank you so much toMrs Greenhough and Mr Nicol for looking after us andletting us play and explore with all of your very coolscience gear! The students are working hard on their write-ups about what they learnt in their ePortfolios, so I will crosspost a few to the school website next week.We also had our first swimming lessons at the Taihape Town Pool. Our first session was a swimming assessmentto level thechildren, it was wonderfulto see the kidshaving so muchfun and learning so much atthe sametime (and without turning purple after ten minutes).
Hornets Warning - School Tennis Court
We (well, Roger and Kylie) have found a Hornets Nest inthe retaining wall next to the school tennis court. Roger was very kind and risked his skin to deal to them (muchto John Gilbert amusement :-) but a few are still floatingaround, so please stay away from the tennis court for afew days until we have eradicated the problem.
Old Library Books
Our old library books are on display in the school cloakbay for two weeks only; please feel free to pop into schoolto rummage through and help yourself.
From Stacey and Dusty
I have a wee item for the newsletter (and to ask around atschool) at our house we have found a grey (male???)kitten/cat (I think less than a year old). Showed up abouta week ago (JB has seen it) but it didn't come to myattention until last night. It is very friendly - I could pick itup last night when feeding it and tonight it practicallymauled me as I got out of the car.So for this reason I would like to know if anyone ismissing a cat? It appears to me like it has been 'owned'before and if not lost has been dumped or something. So if it is someone's they can ring us. If not we're thinking of keeping it, getting it fixed and having an outside cat...notsure how long this will last with 4 maniac cat hatingdogs!!
Keen on Rhubarb, the school has lots in the garden by thepool. Please come and help yourself.
