Junior School Swimming & Gymnatics
An account has been sent home for The Bellbirds, Room 4 and Room 5 students. This is to cover swimming and gymnastics next term. This has been subsidzed by the Ashley School PTA who have donated $3,000.00 (this is towards Senior and Junior swimming) and Mainpower swimming programme pay for the transport.
On Mondays in term two your child will be swimming and doing gymnastics in the afternoon. This is for the junior/middle school only. The senior school (Rooms 1,2 & 3) will swim on Mondays in Term 3 then go over to technology at Rangiora Borough School.
Rooms 4 & 5 will go to gymnastics first from 12.30pm to 1.15pm.
The Bellbirds will go to the swimming pool at Dudley from 12.30pm -1.30pm.
Rooms 4 & 5 will go to swimming from 1.30 to 2.30pm.
The Bellbirds will go to gymnastics from 1.45pm to 2.30pm.
Please have your child’s swimming togs organised for the first day of school. The buses will leave at 12pm on Monday. They will return to school at approximately 2.50pm.
We will have 9 swim/gym lessons in the term. There are two public holidays on Mondays in this 11 week term.
Swimming groups will begin with the results from last year, 2014. If your child has progressed due to extra swimming lessons please let us know before the end of term so we can alter the groups Jessica puts together at the pool. Groups will change as the term progresses. If you are new to the school any information regarding your child’s swimming ability would be appreciated so we can have the children in the right groups from day one.
School photos due back Wednesday 22 April 2015, sorry no late orders.
We will have an ANZAC REMEMBRANCE ceremony at 2.00 p.m. in the School Hall on Wednesday 22 April 2015. We will go to the cenotaph to lay wreaths and place flowers at around 2.25pm. Ashley School community are most welcome to attend our assembly and the laying of wreaths.
A request to our families:
Please can you drop off foliage and flowers to the school hall kitchen on the morning of our ceremony to make wreaths to take over to the cenotaph. Help with the flowers arrangements would be appreciated.
If you can help can you please let Gill know in The Bellbirds room or bring wreaths or flower arrangements already made up.
Our Junior children will be making sand saucers and adult help would be useful. We will work on these at 9.00 a.m.
