Luckily the weather was good to us last Monday and many of our families came along to the School Community Group Annual Picnic. Great fun was had by all and I was particularly impressed with the Room 11 boys effort in the Tug of War event.
On Thursday we celebrated Purple Cake Day, raising over $500 across the whole of NCS for schools in Nepal and Haiti. Thank you to everyone who contributed and please enjoy the spectacular sight of all our purple clad Room 11 friends.
Our poem for last week also had a purple theme and I know has already been enjoyed by many families who shared poem books that came home at the weekend. If you have not already heard it take a listen to " My Neighbours Dog is Purple"
Finally great news, our blogs can now be accessed through the Nelson Central home page at http://www.nelsoncentral.school.nz/ just click on the links on the left hand side.
