Being resilient means learning from previous situations and having the skills to avoid similar problems and seeking help from those who are trusted. The next Double Dolphin Award will show recognition of this in oneself or others. Students are being encouraged to flag a green or pink card and request some time-out before allowing a situation to deteriorate to the point where their teacher might flag a yellow card with different consequences. Students are supported to record their reflections and parents are kept in the loop so all might work to become older and wiser without issues becoming a crisis. Identifying the symptoms and feelings and then acting upon them are key to deflating a potentially awkward, escalating situation or one over which one has no control.

PET DAY ~ SPRING FESTIVAL The timing for this school event was nicely placed on the Tuesday between a very cool Labour Day Monday and a very wild and torrential Wednesday. Students had prepared well both at home and school in response to a very full schedule that went home before the end of last term. The event was again managed very ably by Caf Brownlee with a large contingent of supporters, stewards, marshals, judges and volunteers. Over two hundred certificates were awarded at the prize giving which included a small but growing number of entries from pre-schoolers and adults alike. The major prize-winners are listed in the table below. At left the delighted cup winners. Successful entries in specific sections were able to go through to the Marlborough Boys & Girls Agricultural Club Group Day, hosted this year by Tua Marina School on Thursday 30 Oct. This proved to also be a successful event both in terms of weather and placings. See further below for those that met with success. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861 Page 6

SWIMMING & SEASON POOL KEYS With the pool water temp now climbing to 25o and with longer sunshine hours the time has come for the issuing of Season Pool Keys. Students have been swimming on an ad hoc basis and are working on water safety understandings, knowledge and skills. Please check the wardrobe for togs as from the beginning of November the swimming programme will become part of the more formal curriculum and students expected to have them at school with a towel of course. Checking some the attendant skills may be in order before the summer swim season ie keeping clothes in a tidy pile or on the hook, drying before trying to pull on clothes, inside v outside, front v back, the tying of shoe laces, doing buttons and a swimming bag for the damp stuff. Named clothing id always good too – on togs as well. Much appreciated. The 2014-15 Season Pool Key-holder’s Application/Agreement is available from the school office or may be downloaded from the website in pdf format. The application form may be lodged with the school along with $65. As is usual at the close of season $20 will be refunded only if the key is returned on or before the date stated in the agreement. COMMUNITY DROP-IN CENTRE Thursday afternoons 1:30 - 3:30 St Peter’s Hall Lawrence Street Havelock. All welcome. Afternoon tea provided. Activities such as Board Games, Cards, Jigsaws or just come and enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
