PTA NEWS
The next meeting has been changed to the 17th November. This will be our last meeting of the year. Everyone is welcome and we will have a social coffee afterwards.
SHOWDAY
The raffle winners are Tania Wilson $100 and Chris Davidson the scratchies. Many thanks to the families who donated cakes or money to the PTA cake stall. A big thank you to the many parents who helped organise, cook sausages, sell lunches and produce in the hall. This fundraiser could not have been so successful without everyone’s contribution and over $1800.00 was raised last week.
PRODUCTION
At the end of the production the PTA will be selling juice, water, popcorn and cookies for $1 each.

PRODUCTION
On Thursday evening all children are to meet at the school on the asphalt at 6pm. Please ensure your child is here at that time as we need to organise them and have them at the hall and seated before 6.30pm.
The production is expected to finish at approximately 7.30pm.


PET DAY RESULTS
Thank you to all the children who brought animals to show day. You should be very proud of yourselves as your pets were a credit to you all.

DENTAL CLINIC
Signs of poor oral hygiene are bad breath or bleeding gums and are both symptoms of gum disease. If neglected, the gum disease can destroy the fibres and bone that hold the teeth in place. Flossing helps where your toothbrush can’t reach. Anne & Sarah.

Finals will be on Friday 19th November, 6.30pm in the school hall. Entry is gold coin koha.

LIBRARY
“When students read for pleasure, when they get “hooked on books”, they acquire, involuntarily and without conscious effort, nearly all of the “language skills” many people are concerned about….” .by Stephen Krashen—The Power of Reading.
Do your boy/s refuse to read, the library has an excellent book on how to get your boy into reading for parents and caregivers to borrow. As well as many other books on how to get your child hooked on reading.
Library also has a few more books to cover. If you can help please see Anita in the library.
