Thursday Afternoon - Mahi Manawareka Activities

posted 8 Feb 2018, 19:15 by OC Web   [ updated 8 Feb 2018, 19:47 ]


Most students received their copy of the the Mahi Manawareka Activities choice list today. Many have already returned these after choosing the activities they wish to join. 

If you wish your child to take part in the Thursday afternoon activities please look through the list with them and help select up to three.
We welcome help from Senior students at the activities.

Please note the Zumba class has had its costs halved for our students, it is now $3 rather than the $6 as written in the paper version of the list.

Once students are placed in the clubs, the staff running the activity will send an email home to you confirming their placement, along with any other details you may need to know.

If you do not wish your child to take part in a Thursday activity, then they will need to go home at 1:20.

The canteen will remain open for students wishing to purchase lunch before their activity.

Buses will leave at the normal time.
