Valley School adidas Fun-Run
What a great day we all had at our school fun-run! Congratulations to all our students, parents and teachers who got out there and made our day such a blast! Even the rain couldn't damper our successful day.
It's an exciting time as we're in the process of ordering your prizes! If you haven't already done it, money is due back on Wednesday 23 August. Please make sure you hand in any cash to your classroom teacher and order your prize at school with your booklet.
Thank you for supporting our Valley School adidas Fun-Run!
WALKING SCHOOL BUS- HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Valley School parents currently operate two Walking School Buses, from Totora Ave and The Colin Lawrie Fields. These supportive parents need your help. If you live near either of these areas we would like you to consider joining a WSB.
This involves being part of a roster and taking a turn to walk a small group of children to school and/or back again at 3pm.
Both WSBs have been operating for several years, but lack of support means that a few parents are being asked to do more than their fair share.
We are a zoned school, so most children should be able to walk to school, and if you can support them to do this, then we are keeping our very conjested entrances safer for our children.
Please contact the school office if you can help. WE NEED YOU!
