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.
FUN WITH TE REO

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.
