Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We would like to wrap up what has been a very successful Easter fundraiser for the School before the holiday break - Friday 12th of April.

To those families who are still to return their monies, can these please come into school over the next three days.
Please do not have children leave money in their backpacks.
Thanking you all sincerely for your efforts.

Easter Fundraiser sales.
Just touching base to see how the sales are going.
It is important that this is a "wrap" before the end of term, and we are mindful that Year 6 students will be away on Camp between 3-5 April.
This is a time based fundraiser i.e. centred around the Easter Celebration and in particular the "Easter Bunny Hunt".
As sales are complete please return monies to the office in a named fundraising envelope, or envelope that is clearly marked with your child's name and room number.
Your assistance in supporting this fundraiser is greatly appreciated.

HEATH NOTICE – Hand, foot and mouth disease
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We have been advised today that we have a student confirmed with Hand, foot and mouth disease.
Hand, foot and mouth disease can be a mild or a very serious illness. It is caused by a virus, and is most common in children under 10.
Hand, foot and mouth disease appears most often in warm weather (which we have had a lot of lately) – usually in the summer or early autumn.
Mild fever is usually the first sign of hand, foot and mouth disease. This starts 3–5 days after your child has been exposed to the disease.
After the fever starts, your child may develop other symptoms, including:
The only medicine recommended for hand, foot and mouth disease is paracetamol.
Most blisters disappear without causing problems. In the mouth, however, some may form shallow, painful sores that look similar to cold sores. If your child’s mouth is sore, don’t give them sour, salty or spicy foods.
Make sure they drink plenty of liquids to avoid getting dehydrated.
Hand, foot and mouth disease is spread by coughing or sneezing, or by contact with mucus, saliva, blisters or the bowel movements of an infected person.
Children are contagious (‘catching’) for around 7–10 days.
Keep your child home from school or childcare until blisters have dried. If blisters are able to be covered and the child is feeling well, they will not need to be excluded.
Call the Healthline 0800 611 116 if you are unsure of what you should do.

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.
