Art Exhibition

Hi Room 14 families,

please enjoy these photos of our class piece – Kiwiana Pop.  Our class art can be viewed along with their individual screen printed bags tomorrow in the School Hall and staff room from 3.15-6.15 pm.  The auction starts at 6.30 pm in the staff room.  I am so proud of all of the children and how they conducted themselves throughout the whole art process.  They made it so enjoyable, smooth going and fun!


Week 7 – Art Exhibition

Morena everyone,

This Wednesday is the Art Exhibition!!  You can view all of the art from 3.30 – 6.15 pm in the Hall, it is a gold coin donation.  The children have worked very hard on their individual pieces of art and the class piece, and I know they will be very happy to show you what they have created.

The auction for the class pieces will start at 6.30 pm in the staffroom, so come along and bring your cash or eftpos card!  The children are all very proud of their class piece and someone is going to be the lucky owner on Wednesday.

There will be food to buy and a bar in the staffroom so come along and enjoy the afternoon-evening.

Also please remember to hand in permission slips and pay the $8 for the Picnic Day and return the walkathon forms and money.

Thank you have a great day and see you Wednesday.

Kia Ora everyone,

Well there were certainly a lot of very tired faces this afternoon, but what a fantastic and busy week it’s been!  We hope you enjoyed our assembly today, I thought the children were fabulous, and we had lots of fun putting our item together.  Below is the link to the assembly just in case you missed it and the children may want to have a look.

This link has been copied to the blog for parents only viewing. Please do not copy this link or re-post on YouTube or any other public media. This is for the cyber safety of Gladstone children. Thank you.
The screen printing is coming along really well too, thanks to Eleanor, Anne and Teresa who came in this week to help out.
Have a safe and relaxing weekend




Busy Week 4 Ahead

Kia Ora everyone,

we have a very busy week ahead so a number of reminders are needed.

School Assembly this Friday

It is our turn to perform at School Assembly, so please come along and support your child in their performance. The class have been practising hard at their dance and acting skills.  Every child is dressing up in Halloween costume and they can bring these to school in a named bag, starting this Monday.  We need old shoe boxes to paint so if you have some you don’t want anymore please bring them in on Monday.  Also if anyone has spare black masks that bats could wear that would be great too.  Please have your child come early to school on Friday at 8.00-8.15 am so we have time to get dressed, calm the nerves and be ready on time.

Athletics Sports Thursday

The middle and senior school will be going over to UNITEC for Athletics Sports this Thursday for the whole day.  Your child will need to wear suitable clothing for running in, have a sunhat, be wearing sunscreen and have a water bottle as well as their usual food for the day.  Parents are most welcome to come and watch the sports.

Screen Printing All Week

We start screen printing our bags on Monday and we start our class piece for the auction this week – exciting!!  If your child still wants to bring in their own pillow case to practise their screen print on they can.  I recommend they wear clothes that you don’t mind if ink and paint gets on them or they can bring a big old shirt to wear, and we can keep it at school for when they are doing their art.  Parent help– if you have some screen printing experience and would like to help out in the class over the next couple of weeks, please send me an email.  A big thank you to those who are already coming in this week!


Swimming starts this week in PE, but for our class it will be next week as our PE day is Thursday and we will be at UNITEC.


Library is on Monday please return any overdue books.

Take Care and have a great week.
