Please register your child / children for the Junior Tough Guy and Gal Challenge on the 31st May, by Friday 21st so I am able to work out transport next week.

Junior Tough Guy and Gal

Registrations for this event can now be entered on line. The event is at Linton Army Camp Palmerston North  and will be on Monday 31st May.

Please enter South Makirikiri School into the school as this will appear on their bib and they will have my details should they need to contact somebody at the event.

Please also enter the option “teacher will collect” I can then collect all the bibs at once, from experience this is the fastest way to do it.
