BIBLE
Bible on Thursday from 12 —12.30pm in the school hall for the Senior 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. We are disappointed at the number of people who park vehicles in inappropriate places. We have recorded 6 vehicle registration plates this week and reported 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.
Shall I read you a story?

DENTAL CLINIC
It is important to eat a good breakfast but watch what cereal you are eating. Cereal grains contain little sugar but processed cereals often contain sucrose, glucose or honey. These add energy without nutrients and also the sugar causes tooth decay. Make the right choice for your teeth to start you off for the day. We recommend porridge with fruit as a filling meal that will limit snacking on the way to school. Anne & Sarah ph 439 4065.
