Junior Invitational Cross Country - Sausage Sizzle

We have the Invitational Cross Country next Tuesday morning (11 June), at which we're doing a sausage sizzle. We thought we'd extend this to the whole school at morning tea (not lunch).

Here's the link to the school shop: https://shop.tgcl.co.nz/

Options available for:

  • regular (beef & pork mix),
  • vegetarian, or
  • gluten free

All $2 each. 

Orders close 4pm on Monday 10 June.

ICAS Reminder

An ICAS meeting for parents who have not entered a child into ICAS exams at Amesbury School before will be held at 4pm on Friday 14th June in the school library. (We require all parents who are new to ICAS exams at Amesbury to attend this meeting prior to registering their child/ren in ICAS exams).

All registrations for ICAS exams must be emailed to Urs by Friday 28th June. 

Further information can be found in the ICAS article sent earlier in the year. 

Start and Finish Times

We encourage students to be dropped off/arrive at school at a time that allows them to put their bags away, and sign in before the bell rings, so they are ready to start class at 9am. However, school, including the hubs, library and office, does not open until 8:30am each school day. 

To ensure the safety of all students, please do not send your child to school before this time as staff are not available to supervise them.

Before and After School Care is available on site from 7.15am-8.30am / 3pm-6pm and can be booked through Kelly Club.

Entertainment Books

A reminder that the 2019/20 Entertainment Book is now available for pre-order. See the link to find out how to obtain your copy.

Not only do you get tremendous discounts on a wide range of products and services, you are supporting the school at the same time.

Uniform Orders 

A reminder that there is a delay with our production orders for the turquoise, gold and orange polo tops. If the size/colour you want is currently sold out, you can still place an order and Rachel will let you know as soon as this new stock comes in (expected to be the end of June). Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Lost Property

Just a reminder that there is a quantity of unnamed items in the office looking for their owners. This is both uniform and non uniform items. I am advised that these items are going to look for a new home at the end of this week if their owners don't show any interest in them. See below for photos.
