Thanks to the University Book Shop for the black carry bags, pads, bookmarks and sonic rock magnets, Whitcoulls George Street who donated a free book for each book bag, Officemax for jellybeans and packs of pens, Rainbow Confectionery for sweets, BNZ South Dunedin for pens and pads, and the Dunedin Public Libraries for bookmarks, DVD vouchers and bookbus timetables. A special thank you too, to the Queen’s PSTA Chairperson, Nicky Jocelyn-Homan for her help and support in putting the bags together.
Also a huge thank you to Mrs Gardiner for all her effort to put together these book bags – I know they are thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to.

On Friday our Y9 classes are all going to the museum to learn more about Ancient Egypt. We will be having two classes go at a time – 9 Spence and 9 Cebulla-Elder from 10.15-12.45 and 9 Bishop and 9 Ellis from 12.45-2.30. It is always a fun trip and the students thoroughly enjoy themselves. There is a cost of $6 per student to cover the bus and programme fee for the Starlab – please pay this prior to the trip, but it will be loaded on accounts for those with Automatic Payments. The students will be wearing mufti for the entire day, and Monday as well (sorry about the error about uniform in the letter home).
