Year 7 & 8 Shakespeare Production – Wednesday 3 April – Saturday 6 April
Year 7 & 8’s key drama production of 2019 is well underway with drama rehearsals making way for dress rehearsal’s.  A big thank you to all our parents and supporters who have been working tirelessly on the set, make-up and costumes.
All children will bring home an A5 flyer about the production today.  Tickets are now for sale in the school office.



Student Extended Absences
You received an email from Mr Crompton earlier this week in regards to families removing children from class for holidays during term time.  We wish to reiterate that whilst these holidays are occasionally necessary, it does disrupt the learning of the student and the class as a whole.
We ask families to please be mindful of the effects absences have on the progress of the class in general.
Please note: Permission should be sought in writing from the Principal in advance for extended absences. For any medical or unforeseen absences the school office should be informed by phone or email as soon as possible please.
Thank you for your cooperation.


Funds Raised for Christchurch
You have received emails from Mr Crompton and Mrs Brickland this week regarding Ficino School’s response to the horrific events that took place in Christchurch last Friday.  A noticeboard dedicated to “Messages of Support to the Christchurch Community” contains many notes and drawings from children, together with photographs from Tuesday’s gold coin ring around the fountain.
The School collected $609.90 in donations.  We have decided to donate this to one of the official donation sites, Launchgood, certified by the Crown agency CERT NZ.
