Walking Wednesdays

What a tasty Wednesday experience for all those students who parked and walked/biked/scootered to Frankley School this week. So great to see the enthusiasm and support. Of course lots of us already choose to do this every day but this helps to spread the enthusiasm across all of the age groups.
Keep up the good work as we continue to encourage our Walking Wednesdays for all of Term 4. A big thanks to Tara, Dylan, Ava, Georgia, Koby and Sylvia for your efforts -  (and Penelope the Pukeko for your great hugs and dancing skills!!!)

Term Wha is Here...

Kia ora Whānau

One more sleep to go and we will be back into the swing of the term at Frankley. Hopefully everyone has had a great break and recharged those  batteries. Some families will have been busy with friends and relatives and others with sports and still more doing all of those gardening and spring cleaning jobs that always need doing.

We have a busy term coming up with the Carnival happening in November. If you have sold your raffle tickets get those dollars back to the office. If you haven't it would be great if you could. Mrs Cribb sold a few outside 'Locals' cafe today in the glorious sun so people are interested in buying and supporting our school.

Remember to also pack hats and water bottles (we mean get your child to!!!) as we are sure the sun will be out to welcome us up the path.

The Results are in...

A big thank you to all of our Tūhono whānau who made sure that they commented on their child's calendar art on Seesaw.  We loved reading all of your positive feedback and we hope you enjoy the final product as a calendar, cards or diary.  We promised that we would randomly choose a name (student and parent) to win our crunchie prize!!  Tumeke to Mason and Amy Fale - you are our lucky winners...

Tūhono loves to run and run and run...

Last week, Tūhono was proud to send off a group of runners to the New Plymouth Cross Country at Peringa Park.  This course is a much more challenging one than the Frankley School course but our tamariki were up for the challenge.  They all looked very red-faced when they returned from all of the effort they put in to do their personal best.  Ka pai tō mahi - awesome work Tūhono!

E tu Kahikatea...

Last Friday, 23 Tūhono tamariki were a part of the annual Tatarakihi Kapa Haka Festival held in Hawera.  For many of them it was their first time performing on a stage and they did Frankley School proud.  Each one of them performed with mana (pride) and wehi (courage) and had lots of fun along the way.  We are so proud of all of them and it was great to see all their mahi (hard work) pay off!
