    Totara End of Year Trip – Rooms 1, 2, 3, 18, 19 & 20

    What a wonderful year we have had! To celebrate the end of year and the wonderful learning that has occurred we are going to take a Totara Trip to Aotea Lagoon, in Porirua. Whilst we are there everyone will have a chance to play on the playground and feed the ducks.

    Transport will be by bus, leaving school at 10am and returning by 2.30pm on Thursday the 14th of December.

    Morning tea and lunch will both occur at the Lagoon so we ask that you please pack a lunch and a water bottle for your child.

    We will also be getting hot chips to be eaten together during lunch time.

    Note that bringing a hat is essential and will be worn whilst at the Lagoon.

    Could you please also apply sunscreen in the morning before school.

    The cost of this trip is $5.80 and can be paid through Kindo here. Permission can also be given through Kindo, or if paying in cash at the office please complete a paper permission slip. Payment and permission is required by the 1st of December.

    If the weather is awful, we do have a wet weather plan. For this we will still travel on the bus to Tawa Library, where we will have story-time and activities relating to our topic of celebrations. We will then have our lunch back at school.
