I have started putting up pictures on our Pukeokahu School Facebook Page of our awesome Horse Trek. If you have any other photos we can add, please email them to me or bring your camera up to school. Thanks. We all had an amazing weekend, even with the looming “Weather Bomb”. I must say a huge thank you to Jack Roberts who hosted us at Timahanga Station, and Kevin Pye who made this event possible. As usual events like this really do highlight the fantastic support we have in our district. Thank you for all of the amazing donations of food and supplies for the weekend; the wonderful cleaning fairies, the Pukeokahu Playgroup, who prepared the shearers quarters; and the steadfast weekend Tristin on top of the Range with crew who stayed out at his horse Jimmy. T imahanga the whole

weekend cooking, cleaning and making this well run event possible. And finally, a big thank you to all of our trekkers, many of which who come year after year. I must say, of the three years that I have been attending, this lot definitely had the sweetest dance moves - I hear rumors that Claire and Maryanne want to start up a Pukeokahu Line Dancers Support Group, though Maryanne’s skill with a broom and a Boney M tune should not be over looked. Worthy Mentions From the Horse Trek: Carol Gilbert - For giving Mary Poppins a run for her money. Jock Stratton - For almost causing Carol to fly to Napier via tent. Stacey Buchanan - For Soup Brilliance Maryanne Mallalieu - For her extraordinary skills with a broom. Claire Law - For her dedication to the dance floor. Jenny Stevens - For attempting to dance-nap my husband and chasing him out the door. Cody Stewart - For refusing to dance with Jenny. Kevin Pye - For giving in to Jenny twice! Clint Overton - For sacrificing his reputation, and showing us the real men do dance. Clifford Boreham - For monitoring the weather and Kevin’s couch on Saturday afternoon. Tina Boreham - For letting Clifford buy a horse, posttransaction. Geoff Mallalieu - For making sure I was informed of any and all breaches of conduct. Marama Stewart - For being the only one who needed medical attention all weekend And Jock Stratton’s Pants - For taking one for the team. Pukeokahu School Timeline - School Families Just a reminder, we would appreciate it if you could send in a family photo with your child (which I will scan and return) and the date when your family arrived in Pukeokahu District.
