Please remember the sausage sizzle on Friday 14 June. 

Our sausage sizzles are $2 each, please come and pay cash on the morning of the 14th of June from 8:10 to 8:40 at the office. The PTA will be there taking the cash and your order. That will lock in your order for your sausage sizzle for the day. 

If you have a special dietary requirement, please email the PTA at pta@kirkwood.school.nz before Wednesday 12 June with your specific order. You will still need to pay cash at the office on the Friday before school.

Computer Monitors: Please ensure all your laptops are in the POD by lunchtime today. Some students will come around in the afternoon to collect these. Cheers, Mr. Botting. 
International Language Week Challenge: How many different languages are spoken in your class? Try to say “Thank you” to your teacher and other staff around the school in your mother tongue!
Class Competition: Come up with a collaborative art piece that shows the diverse cultures and languages that you have in your class! I have put some great resources / ideas for your class art display on the International Language Week 2024 doc. Matariki is also coming up so try to link your art piece to Matariki as well. Remember that the artwork should show how we celebrate and value the diversity among us. They will be judged on Friday in Week 8 🙂 Who’s going to win the Spirit Shield this time? 
Individual Competition: Linking to Matariki, how do you celebrate New Years in your own culture? Make a poster to share your culture with the rest of the kura! Examples are on the doc. They will also be judged on Friday in Week 8.
