Our Garden Area
Our scarecrow, Scarlet Redlocks, was placed third in the competition. Thank you to everyone who voted for her. Unfortunately this was out of the running for prize money but we are loving the way the other children and families are enjoying seeing our scarecrow family in the garden.
Watch Your Waste Trip
We are organising a trip to the Metro Place green waste processing plant for Wednesday the 6th of June. There are two sessions and Tōtara 3 will be split over the morning and afternoon trip. Parent helpers will be essential. More information will be coming shortly.
Totara 1 - Autumn Leaves
We are looking for some colourful leaves to use in an art activity next week. I have a selection in class but if you have some at home that you can press and bring in, it will make your art piece more meaningful for you.
Please check and replace any missing equipment and remember to name everything. There is already quite a collection in the lost and found container.
