NATIONAL MP - Sarah Dowie took time out to visit
New Zealand playhouse - ENTERTAINS students at Salford
It’s the crime of the century that’s too much to bear. Bear-boy-band singing sensation Baby Bear has been kidnapped! When a ransom note is discovered asking for an unlimited supply of ‘Just Right Porridge’ all hands and paws point straight at Goldilocks.
Facing a life sentence of uncomfortable beds, chairs and cold porridge she turns to the only cool-cat capable of cracking the case, the mysterious super-sleuth in boots known to all as the ‘Pet Detective’.
Goldilocks discovers that sometimes when everything seems too hard, all you need is a friendly feline and a whole lot of perseverance to make it all just purrrrrrrrrfect.

STUDENT LUNCH OPTIONS at School
CONGRATULATIONS to the Salford Community for a wonderfull fundraiser today for Daffidol Day.
While the children were at time difficult for us to identify in their "Mufti clothes" as we are so use to seeing them in their uniforms.
A total of $354.20 was raised for the Cancer Society in support of the work that they do for and on behalf of others.
A presentation will be made to the Cancer Society on Monday.
SPCA "s" DISCO
CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
The Disco was an absolute success last night, and without the help of you, whether you were there in the capacity of supervising, or helping your own family, or helped by organising, supplying, collecting, selling, painting, decorating, counting, or providing new ideas, etc, or simply there to look Fab and create a great vibe, I think we would all like to congratulate the Hard working Community of Salford, the Hard working House captains, and their very hard working teachers and parents and grandparents, for a great evening.
The House Captains who were in charge of the disco, successfully raised $271.30 for the SPCA.

Salford Schools - Murihiku Polyfest 2015 our "korowai" cloak.
Korowai - a treasured heirloom for generations. Also known as “kahu huruhuru”, most people use the word “korowai” as the name to describe Māori feather cloaks. Korowai are the most highly prized of all traditional Māori garments and are regarded as family and personal heirlooms.
This project has been lead by Jan Bartlett from Room 1, involving all students and staff.
What a stunning result. This will be on display in Windsor at "Windsor Health and Hire" in Bourke Street.
Please take the time to go down and have a look.
