BOT PROFILE
Ana Bretzke
Hi, I'm Ana, mum of Ezra (3) and Delilah (6 and now at school). I work as an Administrator for Miss Timaru/Preen and first came to Timaru just over 10 years ago from Germany. I joined the Board in March 2015 and am now secretary of the BOT and member of the fundraising committee. Initially I just wanted to know more about how Creative Corner is run and how I could contribute in providing a happy and safe environment for my kids. I'm grateful for the opportunity to work alongside staff and other BOT members, shaping the future of our Centre and giving back a little. I feel that Creative Corner is all
about community and would love to hear other parent’s point of view, so feel free to stop and have a chat.

UPDATED IMMUNISATION RECORD
If your child has recently been immunised, we would appreciate an updated copy of this for their records. Thank you.

KOROHI O TE PEPI
The Creative Corner team performed very impressively at Flava Festival on Friday, 28 July at Arowhenua Marae. The children looked confident and enjoyed their moment on stage. There was a big parent contingent supporting CCELC which was great to see. Well done team - an awesome effort by all.

Kia manawanui, whaia
te iti kahurangi!
(Hang in there,
reach for the stars!)

BOT PROFILE –
Tara Norton:
My name is Tara Norton and I am another new face on the board this year. My husband Scott and I have 3 children Maddi (16), Harry (13) and Lulu who is currently in the Pukeko Room. Daycare was a new concept for me as my older children had always been looked after by family so the idea was a bit daunting to begin with, but I am very pleased to say that due to a very caring and professional team of teachers and support staff my transition back to work was made very easy and Lulu just loves it! I am hoping to give back to the Centre by being a member of the BOT and offering any skills that may be of use to assist the Centre and its staff to continue to be a fantastic place for our precious little people.

REMINDER -
CHILD SIGN IN/SIGN OUT
A reminder to always sign your child IN and OUT.
The Ministry of Education requires that every child is signed in and out every day. If the Centre holds a practice fire drill and children are not signed in for the day theoretically they cannot be accounted for. We use sign in sheets as the roll in an emergency so it is important your child is included in our checks. It would also be appreciated if you could remind those people who are permitted to pick up your children to do the same. Thanks.

DAILY ABSENCES
If your child is absent for the day please call the Centre early in the morning of the absence to receive your 50% discount on the fee for the day. This also enables us to organise our staffing for the day.

BOT PROFILE –
Carl Brickle
Gidday, I'm Carl Brickle and am a fresh face this year to the Creative corner BOT.
Together with my wife Janelle, we are the parents of Lachlan (6 - at school), Oliver (4 - starting school August) and Taylor (2 - Pukekos) and enjoy and appreciate the environment found at Creative Corner over the last few years while all our boys have been a part of it.
I love being a Dad to our boys. I really enjoy sharing with them practical skills and a 'give it a crack' attitude. I really enjoy exploring the outdoors, boating, flying, playing musical instruments and projects at our home.
By day I am an operations manager, which gives me practical skills to get stuff done and relating to people.
I look forward to working with fellow BOT members, management and staff to continue to build and promote Creative Corner and also represent parents as best I can. Cheers, Carl

NON-ATTENDANCE FORMS SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

MATARIKI CELEBRATION
Thanks to all families that celebrated Matariki (Maori New Year) with us last Friday. Each child received a painted stone to take home. These were kindly painted and donated to the Centre by Rose Fauth. Thanks Rose. We also had a shared kai which was a yummy soup made from the vegetables donated by families earlier in the week.

WINTER ILLNESS
Please remember to bring your child to preschool with a jacket and hat so they are able to play outside during the colder months. Please be aware that children at the Centre are facing the usual coughs and colds.
