What a fantastic turn out of families and friends for our Step into Spring garden tidy up. In speaking with a few families this morning, it appears that the damp weather did not dampen spirits and the end result looks great!! A special thank you to Dorette for organising this and to Dave for his great barbeque skills.
Don't forget to get your entries in for this years Round the Bridges event. Waikino has won this event for most participants two years running and I hear Waimata is trying to bet our record ...lets not let that happen! $500.00 is at stake, which has been used in the past for new sports equipment for our school.
A big thank you to Thames Valley Bacon in Matatoki for a great deal on the most amazing sausages for Friday's garden working bee. These guys have recently won the NZ Pork 2016 Best Bacon title, and the sausages we had on Friday were terrific. It's great to support a small, local family business, and for them to help us out - it's all part of sustainability of our wider community which ties in with our enviroschool values.
is the Principal of our school and is the author of the Waikino School Blog.
