REMINDER: Mufti Day - this Friday!

Koru hub have initiated a Mufti Day THIS Friday, 22 June for all Amesbury students. It is a gold coin donation and proceeds will go to the Wellington Children's Hospital. What a great initiative Koru Hub. The theme is "stars & space" so please encourage your kids to dress in theme if they can!

  • 2018 School Donation - we've only received a donation from about 50% of our school families. If you haven't already supported the school in this way, please make your donation as soon as possible via the online shop, under the "School Donation" section.
  • Matariki Breakfast gold coin donation - if you didn't make a donation on the day, you can still drop this into reception. A donation box will be on the office bench all this week...

Expressions of Interest - Individual singing lessons

We have the possibility of including individual singing lessons as part of our co-curricular offering. If you have a child that may be interested in pursuing this, can you please email Rachael van Rij on [email protected] as soon as possible.  Please note, at this stage these would be individual lessons for 30 minutes at a cost of $31 per lesson (8 lessons per term). We will require a certain number of students in order to pursue this opportunity.

Another message from Koru Hub!

We are spending the next three weeks making and creating! Can you please send to school the following "cleaned" items so that we have plenty of things to create with: fizzy bottles, milk bottles, small boxes ie mini cereal boxes, muesli bar boxes, tubes (but not toilet rolls), egg cartons, tin cans (smooth edged only) polystyrene or packaging etc. Basically anything you might normally put out with your recycling. Thanks!
