Staff are becoming a little concerned about how high some children are climbing in our trees. Please remember that you must keep yourself safe at all times – and only climb safely – think about the strength of the branches, and the possible fall. If you are sensible, we can keep climbing, if not, we will need to ban it altogether. Thank you, Mr Tappenden.
Basketball Uniforms: Please return these as soon as possible!
Athletics Long Distance Runners: Sign up in Room 1 at interval today, this is your only opportunity so do not forget.

Those interested in joining a Basketball development league starting this Saturday – please pick up a form from the office.

Kirkwood Avenue – there is a two week project happening down Kirkwood Avenue towards Clyde road – about halfway down.  They have blocked off the footpath and there are a lot of construction vehicles there.

The workers are  worried about students coming and going from our gate – in particular the ones who cross over to the other side and turn right and head down towards them.  They think you might go around on the road to get past, then a truck (there will be many coming and going), may not see you.  It will be the same in the morning.  The suggestion is to cross the road further down ie after the works, after school and before the works, in the mornings.

Ms Anderson has tied a red fabric scarf around the power pole where you should cross, if turning left into Clyde road.  If you leave it any further, you will be too close to the corners and cars coming around won’t expect you to be crossing there.

Spiritual Shield – quiz today at lunchtime in Room 7.  Could each class choose 2 contestants.
Everyone who signed up to be an AV monitor for next year, please meet in the hall at morning tea.
