Fundraising lunches

Yesterday was a sausage sizzle, next Thursday we have cheese toasties.  You can order the normal way through lunchonline for this. The cut off for ordering is 9am on Thursday morning. 

Second school photo day

The final day of school photos is Monday.  If you have children who don’t go to this school and want to get a sibling photo, you can come at 8.30 to the Kahikatea space (where the basketball court is).  The in-school sibling photos will happen throughout the day.  


Catch ups with Kathryn and/or Sarah

You are welcome to join us for an informal catch up with coffee on Friday mornings at 9.30 at VBC. Come and meet us for a coffee and a chat!
