Dear Parents and Students,

LINC-ED PARENT ACCOUNT NEW FEATURE
If you are the Bill Payer at school, we have recently added a new feature to your Linc-Ed Parent Account. It is a $ sign. This is where you can check your account for trips, sports events, school activities, donation requests and will show any payments you have made. For any enquiries please contact Karen or email pa@wgp.school.nz.

PAID UNION MEETING
As much as we know this is a big inconvenience, it is time to take action to ensure work conditions and pay will support quality people being attracted to the teaching profession, and ultimately teaching your children. The union meeting is on Tuesday 19 June 2018. Children will need to be picked up from their classes at 1.00pm. (note change of time).Thank you for your anticipated support.

BITS AND PIECES
Assembly this Friday - 2.30pm in the school hall. First placegetters in each year group in the competitive cross country events will be presented with their certificates this week.

Thanks to all those who completed the canteen survey. We are aiming to feed back the findings in the next 2 weeks.

Please support the PFA travel raffle and sell as many tickets as you can, in as many places as you can.

School disco coming up on Friday June 22. See details below.

Have a great week everyone
Kevin

YUMMY STICKERS
We are halfway through Term 2 and the Yummy Stickers Challenge promotion has officially started! The aim is to collect as many YummyStickers as you can and bring them to your class. You will find the Yummystickers on your fruit. Each class has a sheet for all the Yummystickers. Once full the sheet is returned to the office and the tally is added to the master sheet. Every year we exchange the stickers for awesome sports equipment for the school. The more we collect the more we get! So save up those Yummystickers in the holidays and bring them in at the the start of the Term. Go Yummy Stickers! More sheets are available from Cathy and Jane in the office.
