Welcome to Term 4…a very special Welcome to Sutoro Fujii and Riley Goodwin who have joined Ramaroa iti this week. Also welcome back Rachael, who has had a great term on sabbatical, studying and recharging!
Term 4 we always have lots of and this year is no different.

Our Fair is coming up fast… I know you will all be doing your bit to make this a great community event that showcases our school community. Thank you in advance for your support. The Fund raising team have been putting long hours into this to make it a success for ultimately your children’s benefit, Saturday NOVEMBER 3. See you there.
The following weekend is our Moutere Hills Sports Day, Saturday 10 November. This is an annual event that has been running now for 99 years. Started the year after the end of World War 1 to celebrate freedom, it apparently has a number of iterations but currently sees 6 local school participate and compete on the Saturday closest to the 11th of November. There are a number of cups and trophies that are hotly contested with historic significance. Every child earns points during the day that go towards our school tally to win particular trophies.
9 to 3, 10 Nov, Moutere Hills Community Centre. 5 Year Old’s participate for just the morning. See you there.
Auditions for our school production are being undertaken next week for our Year 7 and 8 students. The Production involves all our children and will be on stage at the Moutere Hills Centre Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 December.
Congratulations…. Willis proposed to Lauren in Port Douglas during the holidays and she now sports a stunning ring…. Congratulations!!!
Just making you aware as parents. We have noticed some inappropriate language and behaviours beginning to be displayed at school, especially by boys. Behaviours, which we believe, have a direct correlation with the online game Fortnite. We know a large proportion of our boys play this at home. It may be timely for parents to monitor and reassess the content of this game.
Prior warning; as you will be aware teachers and principals are currently voting on their next industrial action. Dependant on the outcome of the vote, teachers and principals could be again on strike on Thursday 15 November.
