REMINDER - TEACHER ONLY DAY

QUIZ NIGHT FUNDRAISER
Thanks to staff and parents who helped with this fundraiser recently and to those who got together a team and joined us on the night. A total of $870 was made.

CASINO FUNDRAISER NIGHT
A huge effort was put into this fundraiser – thanks to the parents, BOT members and staff that participated either on the night, setting up beforehand, clean up, or the many organisational tasks prior to the event. The night was a huge success with people enjoying the various casino games and being very generous with the auction $7000 - a fantastic effort - well done team.
A special thank you must go to Clarissa and Michael Doran at the Oxford for their generosity in allowing us to use their premises and for all the work they have done behind the scenes to make this event a success.

TOKELAU LANGUAGE WEEK
The Centre was visited by the extended Malama whanau whose family originate from Tokelau. Sange Malama, along with Evie, and past Creative Corner children Tyson, Israel, Amani and Inara, and their cousins sung some songs with actions and Sange taught the children counting and body part names, as well as showing some traditional weaving and talked about Tokelau as a country.
Thanks Sange for arranging this visit.
