THANKS The generous businesses at right have allowed the school to be an early adopter of the ParentTeacher Calendar app or PTC. There are other school apps out there but these cost a small fortune and for our small rural school somewhat prohibitive. These advertisers have allowed anyone around the world to have instant access to the school’s event calendar on their mobile. The app is free and easily downloads and once installed takes care of itself and updates automatically unless you have a not-so-smart smart phone. The calendar is updated every week. New features are currently being engineered and should be ready in Term 4. If you haven’t already got this app then take a few minutes and get it sorted. Any extra info is available once the event is opened. ABSENCE? If your child is to be absent then please text 027 448 4789 or phone 574 2106 and leave a message if so prompted. The school takes attendance and student safety seriously - so should you. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861 Page 2

SURVEY PARTICIPATION The Board of Pelorus Community Preschool is endeavouring to canvas the under 2 population in the Pelorus District via survey after reducing operation of the Under 2 (Pipi) room to two days per week (Tue & Thu) to make it financially viable. This 6 monthly review of numbers in the Pipi room is to ensure the room is fulfilling the needs of parents and is economic. If you are interested in taking part in this survey please contact Leigh Higgins at the preschool office for a copy. 49 Main Rd Havelock P 574 2096 DID YOU KNOW? The Marlborough water supply is not fluoridated. Fluoride toothpaste helps to strengthen teeth and reduce early decay. A number of toothpastes for children do not contain sufficient levels of fluoride to do that so the whole family should use the same adult strength fluoride toothpaste right from when a baby’s first tooth appears. If you have any questions, talk to your Dental Therapist at your family’s next visit.

MARLBOROUGH COLLEGE or COLLEGES ~ CO-ED or SINGLE SEX A public meeting facilitated by consultant Janet Kelly will be held on Wednesday July 2 at the Marlborough Boys’ College hall to discuss the options. With public submissions due to close on July 30 it is important to be informed. Given the timescale involved with projects of this type and scale it is very likely that only a few parents of Public Meeting currently enrolled students will be directly affected. It is the parents of MBC Hall Wed 2 July 7pm students currently enrolled in Marlborough’s primary schools that should be thinking about how they would like to see the secondary schooling of their children shaped. Essentially three options are on the table and have been costed by the Ministry. It would seem that this opportunity only comes around once every fifty to sixty years and so thinking about what we expect modern secondary education to look like is critical. A simple fix-it job would only retain the status quo and not even begin to address the modern learning environments to which we would be expecting to send our teens. Refurbishment only makes buildings safe. A better investment would be to use this same money and look at providing a modern secondary campus that can provide differing teaching and learning environments and respond to an e-learning* future which will reflect learning hubs that students and teachers will visit from within and beyond the campus rather than traditional, albeit modern, boxes in which traditional teaching and learning takes place. Be it single sex, co-ed or a blend, the parents of Marlborough’s primary pupils need to get invloved and help create the best campus they can for their children and those that follow and not be hamstrung with a footprint, location and perspective that limits their vision and Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861 Page 5

ultimately the provision of secondary schooling in Marlborough. Submissions on College If Marlborough clearly wants a “greenfields” modern and futureOptions focussed learning hub then it needs to gather its thoughts, join Close Wed 30 July the debate and make its submission. It is possible. These opportunities only come along once in a life time if you’re lucky. Marlborough is lucky - carpe diem. The full Ministry of Education report is available on our school website here and offers three options for consideration along with their projected costs. * Currently e-Learning typically involves some form of interactivity, including online interaction between the learner and their teacher or peers. As service provision improves, the distances between these groups is likely to grow as is their make-up ie a global classroom in the cloud hosted by Marlborough students and teachers for international as well as more local students where links with industry and tertiary providers is the norm. e-Learning opportunities are usually accessed via the Internet and its associated tools and software. However e-Learning is evolving to include an increasing use of a wide and diverse range of other technologies and tools. These include video and audio conferencing, mobile phones, data projectors, digital cameras, global positioning systems and interactive whiteboards.

REPRESENTATIVE SUCCESSES In the past month we have had teams from U19 to U15 age groups represent Marlborough at regional level across the top of the south. Our U17 & U19 teams competed in Blenheim in early May, and with the U17 Girls coming first equal, and an impressive 5 players selected for Tasman squad trials, along with two from U17 Boys, Marlborough hopes to be well represented at the U17 National Champs being held in Auckland in July. U15 teams travelled to Nelson 17-18 May, with the boys fielding an impressive twenty players over two teams in the competition. Once again the girls’ team performed admirably, coming second overall and having four players named in the Tasman squad, while the boys had one player named. These five will trial for places in the Tasman U15 teams to travel to Wellington for National Champs in mid-July. Tasman Squad Selections: U17 - Jake Southey, Sam Cootes, Rachel Vis, Oriana Houra, Annelise Raemaki, Livvy Hodson, Shae MacDonald. U15 - Anzac Rissetto, Rosanna Buchanan- Brown, Pariss Kilgour, Lina Pale, Billie Watson. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861 Page 7

BOARD OF TRUSTEES WORKSHOP Part of being a trustee is about being a team player, being informed and keeping up to date so that the stewardship of governance is well met. Although not all trustees could make it for the overnight workshop held recently at Te Mahia, the sessions led by Alec McNeil were a good fit and provided opportunities for reflection and potential for future development. The Havelock Board of Trustees has five parent representative positons for community/parent representation - usually a three year term. You do not have to have a child currently enrolled at the school to be a trustee but you would be nominated by a current parent. By rotation two or three of these positions come up for election every eighteen months or so. As it happens two are coming up in October this year and although October still seems far off it is only three months away when the formalities are put in place. The board has for some time been considering succession and this period leading up to this election is an ideal time to consider what you might bring to the table so to speak. Further info may be found on the NZSTA website. Current board members are listed with their contact details on our website here.

Tricia at Lagoons 60 Main Road Havelock would like to take this opportunity to thank all her loyal customers for their support over the last 3½ years. I have now made the decision, that was not so easy, to close Lagoons’ doors from Friday 27 June 2014. I will still have a presence at The Slip Inn Havelock so will probably see you there. Thank you and au revour. Regards Tricia. RELOCATION CLEARANCE SALE ON NOW!

Emergency services will be heavily strained and won’t be able to respond to everyone. Therefore the message is clear, you must be prepared individually, as a family and as a community to take care of yourselves and others. This doesn’t have to involve a major event, it can simply be a road closure due to weather or an accident. People caught in these situations may need assistance. Some people in our community have recognised this and have volunteered their time and expertise to form a… Recognise this, remember this? This is State Highway 6 to Blenheim. Sector Emergency Response Team The purpose of this team is to :  establish a focal point where effected people can assemble and be given assistance  report and receive vital information from the Emergency Operations Centre  establish a data base of contacts and resources within the Community to call on if necessary  partner with emergency services and community groups for a coordinated response Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861 Page 12

Each Sector has a Manager and a team of volunteers. The Emergency Response Centre is currently situated at Havelock Primary School along with equipment and radio necessary to operate it. Like any volunteer organisation it can only survive if the community sees a need and supports it. Support from the Marlborough Emergency Management Office in the form of a regular training program as well as courses such as First Aid and radio work may be of interest to some. With this in mind we have organised a training event at Havelock School Thur July 17 at 7pm and welcome the community to come and see how the centre could be set up. The Marlborough Emergency Response Team will be here as well to assist. Those interested in becoming a Havelock Sector Volunteer may contact Graeme Basanti 027 624 7368 or Marlborough Emergency Management 03 520 7490.

LIFE EDUCATION Social Relationships was the theme taken across all classes recently when Harold and Genevieve came to visit. Seniors went a bit deeper as well to understand some of the biology that is impacted upon when substances good and bad are introduced to the body. Having a true friend look after you, and you them, was a clear message despite the pressure sometimes to give in. At top right Genevieve explains a little about how messages are sent via the nervous system and what can slow them down. At left Jacob is popping the large intestine back in just the right place. Students enjoyed the few days in their special classroom but like most lessons, the tests come in the playground and in the years to come. CULLEN POINT RUN 4 JULY Some prep work is still being finalised but we envisage enjoying the last day of the term having a run around Cullen Point. This is not of course an interschool event so no need for school polo shirts, just sensible footwear and some clothes that can get a tad grubby. A towel, drink bottle, lunch and warm clothing would also be in order. We anticipate everyone being on site at noon and being back at school by 14:30. We’ll use the bus to get us all there and back. You are of course are most welcome to join us as a runner, marshall or recorder. We will need a few volunteers. What a way to finish the term. If you can help drop us a text on 027 448 4789.

GYMNASTICS COMP Mr Trossell helped two teams prepare for the Marlborough schools’ competition held at Stadium 2000 last Friday. A team each entered the B & C grades. Although neither was placed, some reasonable points were earned for the rotations on the beam, box, bar and mat with the C team gaining 78 points of the 120 possible and the B team scoring 158 of the 240 on offer. As with all these acitivites it was good to see students respond to the challenge of preparing for a larger field of competition. Experiences like these are a great way to extend one’s horizons stretching both mind and body. Congratulations to those making up the teams and thanks Mr Throssell for giving his time and expertise. Transport and supervision on the day was kindly provided by Selena and Georgie. With close to 1000 students from Marlborough schools the potential to be overwhelmed and lost was always there so the support was both necessary and appreciated.
