Ficino School Letter Week 6, Term 1, 2017


Mid-Term Break Holiday – Friday 10th March – tomorrow

No school tomorrow!

Ficino Fiesta – Saturday 18th March – 5pm – 9pm

The Fiesta presents a world of flavours on your family’s doorstep, as well as a night of entertainment to suit everyone.  This event is vital in raising funds, especially for the Renaissance Tour which has become such a magnificent hallmark of a Ficino education.

There will be a DJ, dance troupes, acrobats, live music and a special performance from New Zealand’s next big star, Denel.  The Fun Zone will be an adventurous wonderland of activities for children, including the wonderland for very little folk in the Grotto.  If you’re more into fashion, books, or bargains, you’ll be in luck too!

The food is mouth-watering – it’s a dinner like no other.  There will be magnificent dishes from some of Auckland’s top international chefs, and generous school families will offer authentic homemade dishes from all over the world.

The Ficino School Fiesta is a night that the school community is looking forward to enjoying, but it will be much more fun if friends and family can join us too.  All are welcome.

Ficino Information Evening – Wednesday 22 March – 6 – 7pm

Our first information evening for prospective parents will be held on Wednesday 22nd March from 6pm – 7pm.  If you know anyone who would prefer to come and hear about the school in the evening, rather than on the weekend, please let them know about our Information Evening.  Thank you.

Open Morning – Saturday 25th March – 9.30 – noon

A reminder that we are having an Open Morning at school for prospective parents on Saturday 25th March.  A notice about this was sent home with the children last week. If you have not returned your reply slip, please bring this to school on Monday.  Thank you.

Cars Turning into Puka Street from Esplanade Road

The School has received a complaint from a local resident about the traffic jams brought about by some of our parents turning into Puka Street (after exiting the school and turning left onto Esplanade Road) and then doing a U turn to get back onto Esplanade Road.  We have been monitoring this over the last week and can see this causes problems and is a potentially dangerous manoeuvre, particularly for pedestrians. Can parents please endeavour to turn around further up Puka Street, or alternatively turn left onto Mt Eden Road and go around the block.  Thank you for your cooperation.
