So far sales have been quite slow so please push those over this week and the weekend. We would appreciate money being brought to school by next Friday 22 March. Money can be taken straight to the office on arrival to school. All students who sell 30 bars of chocolate (1 box) go in the draw for these prizes.
There will be NO Friday Special tomorrow 8 March, 2019. There will be NO HOT CHIPS until next Wednesday 13 March, 2019
Parents/Caregivers are required to ring the school office before 9am (4370822) each day or text 022 327 5057 with your child's name and reason for the absence.
Students will be encouraged to walk or wheel (cycle, skate, scoot) to school. We have hi-vis vests availble for those chilren that want to use them.
All visitors coming into our school are required to sign in at the office first. You will then be given a lanyard to wear identifying yourself to staff and students.
The OIS Triathlon will commence at 1.30pm next Wednesday. All students are encouraged to participate in this as either an individual or as part of a team; completing either the swim, bike or run.
Many children have already sold their 30 bars of chocolate and are selling more, which is fantastic. If you still have unsold chocolates at home please try to get out and sell these over the weekend.
