Bible on Thursday from 12 —12.30pm in the school hall for the Middle
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.
FUN WITH TE REO
Next Whanau Support Group Meeting is 19th August at 3.30pm in the DPS
staffroom. All welcome.

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. Clinic

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
