DO YOU KNOW A CLEVER ANIMAL?
Have you ever seen a smart animal? The Royal New Zealand SPCA and smarter than Jack are seeking true stories of clever animals for a children’s edition in this best selling book series. To date, this popular series has raised over $200,000 to help animals. We’d love to know about your true story. Please tell us in no more than 250 words. Illustrations are welcome. It can involve any type of animal and any situation. Stories can be authored by an adult or child, but we recommend stories written by children are supervised for factual accuracy as they must be true. The deadline is February 18, 2005. Submit stories online at www.smarterthanjack.com or post to Smarter than Jack story submissions, P O Box 27003, Wellington. Please make sure you include your schools name and contact details as well as your own.

HOW TO DRAW REALLY WELL
On Friday 25th February an exciting workshop by well known professional artist- “Graham Braddock” will be held at the school. Graham has inspired many thousands of NZ children with a simple, step by step approach to drawing. Your child will learn valuable, practical skills, gain increased confidence and will create a drawing to be proud of. Cost is $3 per child, only children who pay will go, money to be given to the class teacher.

GUIDES
Would you like your daughter to have fun and learn skills as a member of an up to date organization in your local area. If so Guides NZ can help. We cater for :
Brownies 7-9 yrs
Guides 9-14yrs
We would also be happy to hear from volunteers who would be interested in helping with leadership. For more information ph Deborah Pyke 439 1426.
