Lots of exciting events have occured over the last week with the Scarecrow Competition, Ki Runga Rawa Challenge, Epro8, High School Transitions, and the Kapa Haka Roopu have been preparing for the Puanga Festival. 

Remember whānau to keep a close connection with school and your child/children’s classroom programme. Follow the SPS Facebook feed and regularly check the School App for important messages. Information can also be found on the school website.

Finally, thank you so much to all the Home and School Committee for organising tonights Quiz Night. Your support is greatly appreciated by the SPS Community. 

Next Week’s Reminders:
The Dance Project: Whānau, make sure you have contacted the office to get your tickets for the Dance Project. There are no door sales. Remember, we are only asking for a $5 donation. The key message is that everyone needs a ticket for seating and fire reasons. Please contact the office if you have any questions. The viewing times are listed below.
