Lost Property

There is a large volume of items in our Lost Property Box in the school hall.  Can parents please look through the box to see if anything belongs to you.

 

It is important to name all school uniform items with the correct name of your child currently attending school.  This helps staff identify property and children to have items returned to them.

 

Any unclaimed items left at the end of Term 1 will be put in the rubbish.

Emma Wright - Talk DNI.JPG

Emma is revolutionising the way we teach our children about body confidence. Her target audience is parents of primary and intermediate school children as she is passionate about early intervention and building a fence at the top of the body image cliff.  Her talk is full of great practical advice and tools that can be applied immediately and effectively. 

Her business, Family Body Confidence Consultants, is not a diet focused biz, it doesn't endorse "clean eating" or fussing around with the nutrient content of your kid's lunch box. It's not about helping you be the "best parent" , or even your kids living their "best lives". There are no rules to follow. No failures. Rather, it is a liberating path to SANITY around food, bodies and health for our precious children.

As part of the Wild Dunedin programme, the Otago Peninsula Biodiversity Group is proud to be hosting two awesome events. Both events are child friendly!

The Kākā are Coming Yeah, Right!

WILD DUNEDIN & OTAGO PENINSULA BIODIVERSITY GROUP — APRIL 25, 2019

Will the Halo effect from Orokonui Ecosanctuary mean there will soon be Kākā on the Otago Peninsula? Find out at Coronation Hall, Portobello on Thursday 25 April ANZAC at 5.30pm with the help of experts on Kākā from West Harbour hosted by Peter Hayden. Start the evening with an OPBG sausage sizzle at 5pm.

 

Otago Peninsula Biodiversity Group BIO-BLITZ 

OTAGO PENINSULA BIODIVERSITY GROUP — APRIL 26, 2019

Drop in to the OPBG Bio-Blitz headquarters in Waverley on Friday 26 April from 1-4pm to get excited about the hidden biodiversity at the gateway to the Otago Peninsula. Get plants and bugs identified by experts, learn to identify some critters and plants that we have brought for you and make your own "pocket herbarium".

All are welcome to OPBG Bio-Blitz headquarters at St Nicholas Church Hall, 65 Dunrobin St, Waverley.

Children attending this event can earn a Kiwi Guardian Wild Dunedin Medal. Your OPBG hosts will give you the information on how to claim your medal on www.wilddunedin.nz
