You are warmly invited to join us for our end-of-term assembly. We will be sharing highlights from our Year 4-8 camps earlier in the year, as well as celebrating the achievements of our students at recent swimming sports with certificates for HDS Age Group Champions, EWCS and WFPS Place getters. We will also be introducing the House Captains and Student Councillors for 2021.
See you there!
A note from Mr McLeod: Certificates from our school swimming sports (Y4-8) will be sent home over the next couple of days. Thank you once again to Deahnn Riley for completing these for us.

The Term 1 teaching break has come around very quickly and, for some of our students, just in the nick of time. The busy term has been packed with school camps, summer sports, swimming and a bit of learning thrown into the mix. Our students are pretty tired and we wish you all a safe, restful and relaxing break.
We have been contacted by concerned parents and roading engineers about the behaviour of some of our students on the way home. Some have been seen weaving all over the road and path on their bikes in a dangerous manner. Other pedestrians are leaning over the Osborne Road Bridge and sticking their heads through the railings. The last thing we want is an accident so please encourage your children to walk and ride safely. Safety applies in our busy car parking areas too. Seat belts and safety seats are to be used where legally required. We know how hectic drop offs and pick-ups are – please make sure you do your part in ensuring safety for all.
Some parents have contacted us about how best to manage internet use by their children in the holidays. There are no hard and fast rules about how much is too much. Parents are the best judges of that. Our Cyber Safety advisor John Parsons reminds us that it is OK to be a parent. You can limit internet use and have every right (and obligation) to check devices and look at browser history. Children will make mistakes. Apply your family values in a supportive and encouraging way so that when they happen some learning can be taken from them.

Bake Sale Fundraiser for children in Waikato Hospital
My name is Ariella Schutte, and I am doing the year 8 William Pike Challenge. For my community service I want to make activity packs for the children in Waikato Hospital.
To do that, I need to make some money to buy resources to help make my activity packets.
To raise the money I am going to sell creative and unique sweet treats, baked goods, and lollies, for between $2 - $3 dollars each. I will be selling these at the front gate of the school at 3:00pm on Friday 16th April. I would really appreciate all the support I can get.
