Term 2 Sports UpdateTue May 11 11:35am
This term we will have two Miniball teams playing on Thursday afternoons at the Edgar Centre. Weekly draws will be sent out to those of you who have ticked SPORTS under your Alert subscriptions.
Unfortunately we were unable to sign up the minimum number of players for Hockey & Netball, which means we were unable to enter a Sawyers Bay team into the competitions.
Three of our super keen students will play in a combined Year 5/6 Sawyers Bay/ St Leonards Netball team. We will publish these draws on the App each week to keep those families updated.

Before and Afterschool care surveyWed May 05 02:27pm
Kia ora Families,
In light of recent changes to the before and after school care providers for Sawyers Bay School, we have another provider that would like to take the opportunity to survey the need within our community. Please if you have two minutes, could you take the time to complete the survey here:
It will help them to establish whether there is sufficient need within our school to operate a programme in Sawyers Bay.
Thank you in advance for taking the time.
Kiwiharvest Delivery todayWed May 05 02:18pm

The wonderful people at Kiwiharvest have dropped off some fresh Apples, Carrots and Beetroot along with tins of creamed corn and packets of porridge for the Sawyers Bay School community.

Back Beach Parent HelpersThu Apr 01 01:58pm
Kia ora everyone,
Thank you to everyone for returning their Back Beach permission forms, and for all of our parents who have offered to help on the day.
We really do appreciate this and if you have indicated that you are willing to come, please take this message as confirmation that we would love for you to join us.
However we do have a slightly embarrasing problem of having too many helpers! We are absolutely blown away with offers of support, but this does make our group sizes too big to fit onto the boat rotation. The other rotations (there are four rotations that the chidlren will go through) are not size dependent. This does mean that if all children and helpers turn up, we may not be able to offer all parents the oppportunity to join us on the boat.
If your circumstances have changed and you can no longer help out, please let us know and that is okay, we are well covered. If we do have too many numbers, we will do our very best to accomodate everyone.
Again, we really appreciate all of your support and look forward to having so many adults with us over the two days.
