Term 2 – Week 3 – 16 May 2019

16 May 2019   –  Term 2  –  Week 3

Tēnā koutou e aku rangatira,

As we head into the fourth week of Term 2, things are getting very busy at Allandale School!  Upcoming events include the Rippa Rugby World Cup, Cross Country competitions, our Matariki celebrations, and much more.  Parents and caregivers are asked to please keep an eye open for notices and permission slips coming home over the next few weeks.

PINK SHIRT DAY

Tomorrow (Friday, May 17th), Allandale School invites our students and staff to join schools around the world and wear a pink shirt in place of their Allandale gold in support of Pink Shirt Day.

Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2007. A group of students stood up to defend a kid who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. In a show of solidarity, many of his peers turned up to school the next day wearing pink shirts, and Pink Shirt Day was born. By wearing a pink shirt, we identify ourselves as an ally. The pink shirt is a way of showing those being bullied that there are many people around who care.

Please note that Pink Shirt Day is not a mufti day, and that no gold coin donation is required. Students who choose not to wear a pink shirt are expected to come to school in uniform.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES ELECTION

With the 2019 Board of Trustees election at the end of the month, all members of our community are encouraged to “make a difference for our school” and become a trustee.  Trustees are active leaders in our school and we need more people willing to use their skills and experiences for the benefit of our tamariki.  Trustees have an important role supporting strong professional leadership and effective teaching for all students through informed governance. 

Nominations are now open for the 2019 Board of Trustees election, and nomination forms have been mailed to all eligible families.  If you are interested in putting your name forward for the election, I encourage you to go to www.nzsta.org.nz for more information and to watch for School Trustee Election notices over the next few weeks.  Nominations close on Friday, 24 May.

WINTER SPORTS

The staff of Allandale School would like to thank all of our parents, caregivers, and whānau who are coming out after school and on Saturday mornings to support their children during our winter sports season!  It is absolutely awesome to see so many mums, dads, aunties, uncles, nannies and koros cheering their young sportsmen and women.  Tūmeke, te whānau!

SPORTS REPORT

BOP Rugby and Sports BOP once again hosted a fun day of learning and playing just for girls.  Girls playing Rugby is becoming increasingly popular and so we had just shy of 100 individuals for this day from the following schools:

  • Allandale School
  • Apanui School
  • James Street School
  • Kawerau Putauaki School
  • Ohope Beach Schoo
  • Opotiki Primary
  • Woodlands School 

Hockey and soccer/football kicked off the season with a bang, all having their first league games last Saturday.

The middle school hockey team had a great win and the senior team annihilated their Awakeri opposition winning by 8 goals. Well done all of you tamariki and also your fabulous coaches and parents.
