    Nga mihi nui ki a koutou

    The changing season is upon us as we head into the final weeks of term 1 where has that time gone? I enjoyed a great weekend at the Leeston Vintage Fair last weekend and despite the inclement weather, it was wonderful seeing the interest from some of our students in these old machines. Pictures below are Jack Andrews with his 1954 David Brown , Riley Miller with his Dads 1985 International tractor and Nick Maddren on his grandfathers Lanz Bulldog.

    WHANAU, FRIENDS AND SCHOOL (WFS) The Whanau, Friends and School group replaces the previous PTA group. By changing the name we want to acknowledge that is more than just parents and teachers that support our school. Purpose After much discussion on why we want to be involved in our school Whanau, Friends and School group we defined our purpose

    To support the school in helping all children thrive and grow in their time in our learning community. We felt this encompasses our

    pastoral support for families in their time of need

    community building of the New Family Pot Luck and Year 6 dinner

    fundraising for goals determined yearly

    Fundraising Focus For 2017 our fundraising will pay for external swimming coaches for summer 2018 and any surplus to go towards subsidising camps. We felt that our school has such special resources in our school pool and the local Leeston Learners Pool. In previous years we have had swimming instructors from Selwyn Aquatics providing lessons for the children; this was well received by students, parents and teachers. We thought we could support our teachers in

    teaching and improving our childrens swimming skills. The additional money raised would go towards subsiding school camps for all students. The school is faced with increasing costs in this area and this would help keep costs down of this important aspect in the Education Outside The Classroom programme. Your involvement We have many new families moving to Leeston, coming to meetings is a great way to meet new people and meet some of the staff and Board of Trustees. You find out about what is going on in the school. We think that some people have the wrong idea about meetings. Guess what? By coming to a meeting you wont get landed with a job. You dont have to go on the committee. The committee is not too scary anyway.. you basically come and have a chat once a month. You wont have to commit hours and hours to something you dont want to do. You can just come to one to see what is going on, no requirement to come to another!! OUR NEXT MEETING: Thursday 11th May 7:30 pm in the Leeston Consolidated School staffroom Registering your help Please complete our form to register what you can help with, from sausage sizzles to Year Six dinner to A & P Baby Animals to helping with chocolates / soaps / calendars . All you need to do is click on this link: https://goo.gl/forms/R5MYxNR1L2yiTPRs1 and you will be taken to an online form. We thank the people that completed this already; it really helps our event coordinators to have some helpers. We would love to run more events both fundraising and social, and some people have some awesome ideas, but we need people to run them. If you feel passionate about a project let us know, either speak to someone directly or add it as a note on the google form. Karla Morton Secretary Whanau Friends and School SPORTS ROUND UP FOR MARCH Its been a busy few weeks. A big thank you to parents and grandparents for supporting our sporting events. Ellesmere Swimming Sports This was a great day at Southbridge. (Results are in this newsletter.) A big thanks to Bill for coming along and supporting the team. We have six children going to Canterbury event: Byron Stephens, Toby Chmiel, Ethan Webber, Mikayla Stanton, Arabella Russell and Amelia McConnichie-Prior. Thanks to our time keepers Glenys Chmiel and Jo Maddren and also Mrs Bromley for judging the event. Leeston School Duathlon What a day!!! It poured the entire time for the school duathlon. However, our children showed a lot of determination and grit to complete the duathlon. A HUGE thanks to parents and grandparents who helped out (standing in the dripping wet). Also thanks to Mrs McClure for setting up the transition area. It was a tight race between Nick and Byron, with Byron just beating Nick over the line.very exciting. We also had a good response for the participation race with 11 children competing in this shorter event. Well done to everyone who competed on the day.

    Canterbury Duathlon Results Another wet and wild day for the duathlon! Lucky for us we know how to perform in the rain!! Well done to our competitors. A HUGE thanks to the parents for taking the team and waiting in the rain for them to finish. A big thank you to Victoria King for helping to set up the course and Michael Dalley for doing the marshalling. This is an event that requires dedicated parental support. Thank you.
