PUKEKOHE HILL FAMILY NEWSLETTER Phone 092386374 Fax 09 2387445 e.mail: Name…………………………… No 03/14 26 February 2014 HILL SCHOOL COMMUNITY PICNIC PORT WAIKATO CAMP WAS AWESOME! PROJECT ENERGISE FOR HEALTH AND ACTIVITY Congratulations Hill community! Thanks to the hundreds of families who made it a family date and came to yesterday’s picnic. It was excellent to see so many attend, relax, catch up with friends and hopefully meet some new families too. Special thanks to our PTA chefs, the junior children and their teachers with Jump Jam, and the picnic games put on by our Year 3 and 4 staff. According to the Year 5-6 campers that came off the bus last week, Port Waikato Camp 2014 was awesome! Climbing Bald Spur, rock climbing courses, environmental programmes, swimming, baking, confidence courses, lots of food, not much sleep, making new friends … all part of the camping experience. Project Energize is a project for primary school children with the aim of improving and increasing the quality and quantity of physical activity and nutrition. The Energize motto is “Eat Healthy, Be active, Have fun”. At Hill we work with Project Energise staff to promote student activity and healthy eating. Look out for information next week on an interclass Healthy Lunch Box Challenge called Go!: Sandwiches, rolls, wraps Glow!: Fruit and vegetables Grow!: Cheese, yoghurt, fish, ham, egg, nuts and seeds. You have no idea how high this was Mum and Dad – and I made it right to the top! GOING SWIMMINGLY! BOARD MEETING THIS WEDNESDAY Your Board of Trustees has its first meeting for 2014 this evening Wednesday, 26 February at 7 pm in the staffroom. The agenda includes discussion and approval of the school’s 2014-2016 Charter and Strategic Plan, Classroom highlight reports and a wide range of other agenda items. Meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to come along. GREAT LEARNERS? Our Concept this term is “Lift off to Learning”. What do you think? “Great learners help each other and share ideas, ask questions and think about their learning”. NEWSFEB19/14 Newslet Special thanks to Mr Laurence, Mrs Smart and the senior teaching team, our chefs and the fantastic team of parents and outside experts, and of course our Hill students themselves who contributed to the success of camp. The sun beat down and it was tough, but when we got to the top of Bald Spur the view was amazing! With the leaks in our pool now repaired, the pool is much warmer than last year and children are also benefitting from instruction by Fulton Swim School. Thanks to parents who support children by making sure they have their togs on swimming days.
