Kay’s Community Newsletter November 5th

Big Thank You

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered at Motukarara. We had some great feedback from organisers about the students who volunteered. Next year they will make a big donation to Ao Tawhiti Projects which could benefit lots of year 7-10’s.

Cookie Time Christmas Cookies

We are running this fundraiser again this year although it is slightly different. This year for $20 you get a great square tin full of 600g of cookies and a $5 voucher for Killinchy Gold Ice Cream. The school gets $5 from every tin sold. Last year we made the lots of money from parents taking order forms to their work places and getting orders. I will attach a copy of the order form below. Orders need to be returned with the money by Tuesday 4th December.

Agricultural Show (A + P)

We have 16 child tickets left for Thursday 15th November. In the next day or so I will be advertising these to outside of my community. We will meet at the Discovery Campus at 9.00 and return there by 3pm. Students can use the Discovery bus to and from the exchange. If your child wants to go please can you sign up now using this form:

Flip Out Whole School Night

Dear Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery,


There are no door sales as we need numbers up front!

So please buy your tickets to this fun family community event this Friday 9th November, 6-7pm. 230 Maces Rd, Bromley. 

Only $10.00 a ticket and these can be purchased by cash or eftpos at the Discovery office, from Jill at the Unlimited office, and online to our school account. 

If you don’t want to jump there is no cost. If you need to supervise preschoolers there is still no charge. Flip out will have staff there too to help make the night safe. And they can also show you some jumping tricks….

The tickets will be distributed to you before the event. If this is not convenient they will also be given to you on the night!

Help support our whole school community night! Hope to see you there.


Community Day Amazing Race

We are planning an end of term fun day in the city. Thursday 13th December is a Community Day and for part of the day we are going to run an Amazing Race around the city. This means we will need a bunch of parents willing to escort / follow on behind groups.


The Crate Escape / Prison Escape

A week or so ago the LA’s had the fantastic opportunity to try and break out of prison. This was thanks to Andrew Dean and we highly recommend it! The Crate Escape group have 3 escape rooms and the Prison Escape is their latest. It is so much fun and an interesting experience for all kinds of groups. The Prison Escape is R13 and I could imagine a group of older students doing it for a birthday get together. There are two other escape rooms one for all ages and another R13.
