This newsletter outlines three events for our students Week 2 and 3.
Week 3, (Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th and Friday 11th)
AWE ~ Swimming Confidence Programme (For all Kahikatea Students).
This programme is run to develop water confidence, swimming and safety skills. It is provided free to all Year 6 students. We have asked that our Year 5 students also attend with a cost of around $10.00 for each student. Instructors take groups of children through a sequence of activities. The cost for our Year 5 students will be deducted from their Activity Fee. We will contact those of you who have not yet paid this with the full cost. Kahikatea students will be broken into two even groups, 1 group attending with Mrs McA and the other with Mr A.
Technobitz ~ For Year 6 Students only ~ Thursday 10 August ~ 11.15 to 12.45 pm
This is run by Devon Intermediate to give our students a taste of the technology offered at Intermediate. Devon provides a bus and there is no cost for our students. Mr Anderson will be accompanying this group
LEAD Conference ~ 10 Year 6 Students, CITY WEST CHURCH
We have gained places for ten of our Year 6 students to attend the 2017 LEAD conference on Friday the 4th of August at the City West Church. This conference is offered to students from Year 6 - 9 across the Taranaki region with limited places offered to schools. We would like you to discuss the conference with your child, identifying why they might benefit from this. If you are happy that they apply to attend we would appreciate a short email from your child outlining why they wish to go and how this might benefit them. We require their response by Friday this week. We will speak to them in class about this too. (Please go through this with your child as not all got a chance to talk about this today.) https://goo.gl/vDqYxC

There are 8 students from Year 5/6 who will be attending the Taranaki Region Chess tournament. If your child is in the team you would have been notified by now. This takes place on Friday 11th August, therefore the students in the team will not be going to the final day of the AWE Water Safety programme.
Please do feel free to make contact with either one of us if you require any more information at any stage. Please keep an eye on our blog as further notices will also be published there.
