SADD - The great cardboard car race!Let's see the term out in car-racing, mud-mucking style.  Get into Waka groups, team up with some older and younger Waka students and start preparing your cardboard cars for the almighty race in Week 10.  Whanau points are up for grabs.  It's all about being aware of how to be safe on the roads (but getting grubby on the school field!).  Cardboard cars need to be made in Waka time/play-based learning time.  Plenty of cardboard boxes in the recycling bin.  Rustle up some other materials to make a solid car that will last the distance.  Teams will 'tow' the driver in the car around the field, avoiding obstacles. Last car to fall apart wins!  Points for team spirit too.  Watch this space (and posters coming too) for more details.
Wig Wednesday - Fundraise for Child Cancer FoundationHi all.  This Wednesday, 20th June, is WIG WEDNESDAY. This is all about awareness and fundraising for child cancer.  It is NOT a mufti day, but you are invited to wear a wacky wig or hair-do for the day.  Get those Jo-Jo bows out, glam it up with hair chalk, try that funky wig, get mum or dad to style your hair in a crazy do-up!  Don't forget to bring some coins (any coins will do) for our collection for child cancer.  Remind your teacher to take some photos and send them to me (Mrs Pascoe).  

Year 13
