Dalefield Country Fair

What a wonderful evening we had last Friday.  We all appreciated the time to reconnect with each other and celebrate our school and the community.  Thank you to the Home and School Committee and in particular Shannon, Jill, Daniel and Miriam for making this a very special time.  Debbie’s photos are testament to the great time had by all.  Here is the link to them:

The Christmas Parade

The Christmas parade on Saturday was another wonderful event.  Big thanks to Brodie for pulling this float together and congratulations on Third Place! Here is the link to some more fabulous photos from Debbie.

Next year we are already looking ahead to what community events that will be held.  On top is a harvest festival and hangi here at school set for late March which will again be a great opportunity to bring the community together.

The Building Works at Dalefield

You could hardly not notice the mahi happening at our school.  Yesterday the temporary fencing went up and the playground was dismantled. The silver birch trees which were in a very dangerous state have also come down but the beautiful oak tree will be spared and this will frame the vehicle entrance to the school.  The remainder of the demolition and site clearing will be happening this week and again there will be no action at drop off and pick up times.  The site plan is printed again from last week below.

Pedal Ready

Today Rob and Gavin from Pedal Ready were at the school working with students from Year 5 up.  This is a fantastic programme and we are involved every year learning about safe cycling and skill development.  These sessions are designed around the following points:

  • improving motor skills
  • experiencing a wide range of cycling activities
  • learning important road safety skills
  • developing independence and consideration for others.

New Children at Dalefield

We welcomed Jack Hall two weeks ago and Rex Keegan yesterday to our Dalefield family. We know you are going to love it here.  

We now have 84 students enrolled at our school.

Other notices

  • Lisa emailed today about donated tickets to the Guns n Roses concert in Wellington.  There is a silent auction for the tickets that closes Friday.
  • Speed limits will be in place along Thomas Road when the school street frontage works commence.
