Purakanui School

By Bridget Davidson
We are very busy preparing and practising for Stars on Stage. This
year's production is entitled "Dance of the Tiger". It is set in
Southern India, with a strong conservation message – a spin-off from
one of our rainforest studies in Term 1. Our whole school will perform
at the Regent Theatre on August 25.
Our sports theme continues and we have the cluster Sports Day at the
Edgar Centre coming up for the seniors. Our students continue to be
involved in Harbourside Club Soccer, the Generators being coached by
our junior room teacher, Mr Cook.
We have had two ski trips – one to Ohau and one to Treble Cone.
Unfortunately, our principal, Mrs Allen, returned on crutches from the
Ohau trip but is making a rapid recovery.
Our Quiz Night is coming up on September 23 at the Sawyers Bay Golf
Club. Book in early for a great night out! Our School Fair is
November 27.. We have further copies of our cookbook "Four Seasons in
Purakanui" for sale from the school for $5 each and will be publishing
a new seafood cookbook to coincide with the Carey's Bay Seafood
Festival in October.
We were thrilled to have our Stadium Mural returned to us recently.
Don't forget our Little Cockles and Tiny Pipis pre-school groups on
Mondays and Thursdays. Phone the school on 482 1026 for more
information about these.
