WELCOME
Haere mai ki (Welcome) to Rio Yabuuchi who joins Creative Corner in the Kakas on Friday,
15 December.

OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS
REMINDER
Please note 31 December is the end of the financial year for Creative Corner.
Our accountant asks that all accounts for 2017 are paid in full before the end of the year.
We encourage you to comply with this but if it is going to be a problem for you please see Amy or Kate.
Another option to think about is setting up a weekly automatic payment - this is a very convenient way to pay your account.

THANKS TO PUB CHARITY
Pub Charity has an extensive history of funding local community organisations in New Zealand and we have been very fortunate to receive $3972 to cover the cost of three new staff laptops in the Centre.
A big thanks to Pub Charity. We also acknowledge the support and contribution of the following local venues: Grosvenor Hotel, Pleasant Point Hotel and Richard Pearse Tavern.

REMINDER - TEACHER ONLY DAY
Teacher only day is on Friday, 10 November. The Centre will be closed.
You will need to make other arrangements for your children on this day. Thank you.

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.
