Next meeting is 17th August, 7.30pm in the staffroom. The garage sale is on the 4th September . We need lots of items for the garage sale. Please bring everything to the school. If any item is too big for you to transport please phone the school and we will arrange transport.

BIBLE
Bible on Thursday from 12 —12.30pm in the school hall for the Middle Syndicate.

PARKING
We have asked several times for parents NOT to park across gateways to pick up and drop off children, both before and after school as well as lunchtime. Yesterday was chaos after school. We have the safety of the children to consider and were disappointed at the number of people who parked vehicles in inappropriate places. In future we will be recording vehicle registration numbers and reporting them to the police. The safety of children is paramount.
John Houston.

FUN WITH TE REO
Next Whanau Support Group Meeting is 19th August at 3.30pm in the DPS staffroom. All welcome.

DENTAL CLINIC
The Dental Clinic is now open until the end of the year or until further notice. We hope that your children have been busy brushing their teeth and getting help when needed. We encourage tooth brushing especially at night before bed and to brush for two minutes, followed by swishing around the toothpaste for ten seconds then spitting, do not rinse out.

PET DAY
Parent help is needed for show day animals. Mrs Vincent is the teacher in charge and Trish McCullough is the co-ordinator behind the scenes. We are very grateful for all of Trish’s help but she will be unavailable for next years event, so now would be a good time to show someone the ropes. If you can help out please phone the office 439 7255.

Children can buy cookies for $1 on Wednesdays only. They will be on sale with the juices after children have eaten their lunch.
