Four Anderson’s Bay School teams competed in the Otago Daily Times Extra year 5 and 6 Spelling Quiz at Tahuna School on Wednesday the 5th of June. While we are proud of the way our teams competed we are especially proud of Ella, Aidan and Aria who achieved 3rd placing overall. Well done Anderson’s Bay School!

A quick update to the 2019 school ski trip. As you may have seen/ heard, when we put out the initial call for interest we were swamped with enquiries and the trip quickly filled out. Part of the issue here was the cap on numbers Cardrona had imposed on our group. The cap was related to their concern over how much rental gear they would have available. However, after a few consequent discussions with Cardrona, they have relaxed this cap, and it only remains in regards to the number of children on the trip who require rental gear.
So, we still have a few spaces left on the trip. If all those currently indicating they are keen to go, then it leaves just under 10 more spaces for children requiring gear. Accompanying adults or children with their own gear don’t count towards this cap.
The huge influx of enquiries in such a short amount of time last time around highlighted that the old system of first in first served (which has been the case for many years now) is probably due for review. It may be subsequent years whoever takes over running these trips will have to introduce a ballot system. However, I meantime, will resort to first past the post.
So if you are interested could you please email and let me know how many in your potential party, which days (Fri/Sat/Sun or all 3), and if you require rental gear or not.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (please make sure you email direct to me)
This years Andy Bay Family Ski Weekend at Cardrona will take place on weekend of Fri – Sun 30/31st August and 1st September. This is always a great weekend for families from Anderson’s Bay School, great for beginners, or seasoned veterans, or those just keen to ski/ board with other families from within the school community at Cardrona, which is a great family orientated resort
The offer we get from Cardrona is open to school pupils and staff and their immediate family. The package is for the mountain only. You’ll need to organise your own transport to and from the mountain, and accommodation.
This year’s rates are as follows:
(Rates are per person per day. Under 6 receive free lift pass)
Winter Rates (up to Sept. 11th)
Thurs - Sun
Lift Pass & Lesson * (compulsory)
Lift Pass, Lesson & Rental Hire
* Please note that this School deal includes a ski/snowboard lesson per day. The payment of the lesson is compulsory as part of the deal, whether you actually attend your lesson on the day or not. The group lessons time is 8:30am to 10am approx.
If you require clothing hire, rates are as follows:
As lessons start at 8.30am it means an early start to get up the mountain. But the benefit is a full days skiing/ boarding, and car parking pretty much outside resort base.
Siblings Under 6?
Children under 6yrs receive free lift passes.
Children under 5yrs who are travelling as part of a family with school age children cannot participate in school group lessons. Under 5’s are welcome to rent ski equipment at the NZ school group rates in which case they will need to be listed on the confirmation form, but will need to ski WITH their parents. Alternatively, Under 5’s can be booked in advance to our fully licensed childcare facilities: the Cardrona Childcare Centre. For more information, please go to cardrona.com/winter/plan/childcare-centre/.
Let me know if you require more info etc.
Many thanks, Laurence Potter
