We will be running a meeting on Wednesday 4th December 7:00pm in the staffroom at school. You can also check out our blog.  http://theipadpod.blogspot.co.nz

It's interesting to hear students talking about devices. They often love the engagement and opportunities that devices provide...

Toytastic Toy Sale  - Please help us to Help The Phillipines

We are raising money for the Phillipines. There was a huge storm and we would like to raise money for them by collecting toys to sell at school.

Ten thousand people were killed. Many of them do not have food, water or a house to live in. We have decided that we are going to do a toy sale to raise money for them.

So it is going to be on Thursday 28th November.  Please bring lots and lots of toys that we can sell. It is going to be toytastic!  Pease bring some money in to buy some toys on this day.

Do YOU have any toys or games at home that you don’t play with anymore? Please bring them in as soon as possible. Keep them in your classroom and straight after morning bell, one of our Toytastic Toy Team members will collect them.

You can bring dolls, stuffed toys, board games, robotic toys, anything in good condition. No broken toys, books, technology please.

We hope that with your help, we can raise enough money to help the Phillipines to rebuild their lives. Thanks SO much....

SEE YOU THERE!  Rose, Tatum, Liam, Taya and Christina.
