Touch Rugby – Marton

Kia ora whānau,

There is an opportunity this year to take part in the Marton Touch Rugby Competition starting from the 11th of November until the 9th of December, which runs for 5 weeks. The grades are Year 4, 5 & 6 and 7&8 students, which would be played on a Friday night. It would be great to get behind our local club and see it thrive. Kids teams are free.
We also have the opportunity to make an adults team if people were interested. An Adult team would cost $100 per team.
Please note:
– If we don’t have enough numbers we may not be able to put a team forward into the competition.
Please complete form ASAP if you are and your child/ren are interested, as this comp starts very soon.

Pet Day – Change of Date / Quad Sports

Kia ora e te Whānau,
With the announcement yesterday about the one off public holiday in honour of the queen, we have decided to move pet day from Monday 26th of September to Thursday the 29th of September. The postponement day, which was proposed as Friday 30 September, will still be our back up day – This is our last day of the term.
Unfortunately due to this change, we have decided to cancel the year 5&6 Quad Sports tournament on the Thursday (29 Sept). If the year 7&8’s are requiring to play on this day due to a cancellation from the Tuesday (26 Sept) they too will have their Quad Sports Tournament cancelled.
Thank you for your understanding.
Ngā mihi nui,

Tough Kids Update

Kia ora everyone,

Could parents who are taking students to tough kids please meet at school by 9am. We will be looking to leave at 9:15am at the latest. Students to come in mufti. Please make sure they have a spare change of clothes, plastic bag (or of the likes to put the clothes warn into), a towel, lunch + water bottle, cash if you were wanting them to get some food. 

If you could please let Matua TeeJay know if you are taking your child/ren to the event straight away that would be great as we need to put their information on their hand prior to start time.

Thanks again to those that are helping with transport. It is really helpful. If you are wanting to help with transport and didn’t put your name down that would be amazing, too. We need the spaces for tomorrow.

Event Date: Friday 9th September 2022
Event Venue: McIntyre Reserve, Otara Road, Ohingaiti
Event Time: 10am – 1.40pm (approx)

Ngā mihi nui everyone looking forward to the big day!
