After a very involved application process, we are pleased to announce our student leaders for 2014: Kaaka MacDonald Kiri Taylor Rere Williams Neelan Wera-Cook Austyn Te Naiti Dorhryen Allen-Heremia Brooklyn Williams Caitlin McGougan Tayla Boynton Congratulations to the Prefects of 2014. We are all very proud of their success, and look forward to their leadership throughout the year! 2014 SCHOOL DONATION The Board of Trustees asks each family to make a donation to the kura each year. This donation contributes towards the cost of sports subsidies, bus transport and special events for our tamariki. This year the Board has decided to maintain the same level as last year, and is asking whānau for a donation of $30 for one child or $50 per whānau. Your support is most appreciated! BUS MESSAGES If you need to notify the kura of changes to your child’s afternoon bus run, we ask that you please ring the school before 1:45pm. We cannot guarantee that changes to bus schedules made after 1:45pm will be received by classroom teachers. Thank you! rd th Term 1 – 3 Feb to 17 Apr Friday, 7 March 2014 HEALTH PROMOTING SCHOOLS NEWS The first friendly round for all ages is scheduled for March 29th. Check the paroaJAB Facebook page for updates. The annual Pāroa JAB Sevens tournament is planned for April 19th. Team coaches will be selecting players. Due to an upgrade of the fields at the clubrooms on Huna Road, all home games will be played at Rugby Park until further notice. Fees for 2014 have been set at $20 per player. These fees cover administrative costs, equipment, and a sausage at every home game. Fees are payable to team managers by March 29th. The club is currently looking for coaches for Rippa grades, Under 9 and Under 10. Please contact the club if you can help! And finally, a boot swap and Pāroa merchandise will be available at training on Thursdays. Bring along your old boots! If you have any questions, please contact: Rhys Mischefski (027)-457-8718, Jimmy McLean (027)-372-8102 or John Harawera (027)-434-7435. 2014 NETBALL Next Tuesday is the last date for 2014 netball team registrations. Unfortunately, at the moment only 5 players have paid their $35 subs for the season. While Te Kura o Te Pāroa strongly encourages our tamariki to participate in sports, we are not in a position to fully subsidise almost $3000 worth of team fees. All interested whānau are asked to please have their 2014 netball registrations in to the kura no later than Tuesday, March 11th. Participation in organised sports is key, not only to the physical well-being of tamariki, but to their long-term success at school. Please help us to ensure that all students continue to have the opportunity to play! SUNSMART / SWIMMING We ask that all whānau please ensure their tamariki have a hat at school at all times throughout Terms 1 and 4. If students do not have hats, they will be directed to the shaded areas, where they will remain until the end of play time. The ability to swim is vital for all New Zealanders, and may someday save your child’s life. Please ensure that your tamariki have their togs and towel at school and are ready to swim every day so that they don’t miss out on this important life skill. RĀ WHĀNAU KI A KOE! Happy Birthday to the following tamariki who are celebrating special days: Ryeleigh Campbell turned 10 on February 24th. Cyrus Tauroa Kaiwhata turned 5 on February 25th.
