Important Notice re year 8 Surfing Session

Dear parents, students and whanau

Due to the forecast inclement weather conditions (thunder and lightning and heavy rain) and on the advice of West Coast Surf, the decision has been made to cancel the Year 8 surfing session at Tauranga Bay on Tuesday 3rd December 2019.  

There is no postponement date however I do recommend that families look into contacting West Coast Surf regarding surfing sessions over the summer holiday break.  Mark Perana is one of the top surfing coaches in New Zealand and he and Leeann Hill provide an excellent introduction to this sport.

Year 8 students will be expected to attend school in their uniform on Tuesday for another scintillating day of learning in the classroom. ;-)

Congratulations to Eamon and Aimee, our choice of Year 8 students for the police "Big Day Out".  These two students work hard on their academic goals, demonstrate kindness and inclusion towards others, and are just two very nice young people.  We are proud of them and delighted to be able to invite them to enjoy this fun day out.  Thank you to the members of the Greymouth Police Force who helped to organise the day especially Terri and Mike.
