Kia ora koutou,
Kia and Carols cancelled.
Due to the incredibly wet grounds, mud up to the eye balls and a weather forecast for …’ Mostly cloudy. A few showers from mid-morning until mid-afternoon. Easterlies.’ It is more than likely that the ground will remain wet for tomorrow nights planned picnic on the grass. Normally at this time of year we are struggling with the heat, rabbit holes and hard ground. The children are coming in off the fields covered in mud.
Therefore, the staff do not think it will be an enjoyable time sitting on the ground in the orchard area for our dinner picnic.
On a positive note, we had a lovely farewell assembly and presentation for Courtney de Boer today. The children and staff wished her all the best for her exiting new venture as a deputy principal at Maunu School. Courtney has contributed to Otaika Valley School in many significant ways over her 12 years of service to the children and school.
The staff, board and children will miss her dearly.
