This week it will be Mac and Cheese and Smoothies prepared by Sarah and Phinece. Next week will be Lasagna and Smoothies prepared by Phinece and Johnny. All dishes and smoothies are $2.00 each. Please remember to place the money in a sealed envelope with the order written on the front. We do use our garden for some supplies, but any donations of ingredients are very much appreciated.



Beeswax Wraps
This week we hope to make bees wax wraps and students will need about a 30cm of bright cotton material for their wrap, we do have material at school for students to use if they need it, Also if you have a pair of pinking shears this would be useful too. If you would like to help please contact the school. We will need big flat electric frypan's so if you have one we would love to hear from you.
Board of Trustee Meeting
The next Board meeting will be held tonight Monday the 6th of August in the staff room starting at 7.00pm. All members of the community are most welcome. Please view the Agenda on the Blogspot under the BOT tab.

Apiti School Speech Competition - 17th August
Oral language is an important skill and at Apiti School we focus on both formal and informal speech. All students have brainstormed their speech and have their 3 main points. Some have completed writing their speeches and their focus is on the oral presentation. The junior students topic is "An Aspect of Safety." All Apiti School students will present their speech to parents and community members on 17th August
The 1st and 2nd place students of the Apiti competition, both year 7/8 and Year 5/6, will then represent Apiti at the Oroua Speech competition being held on Thursday the 23rd of August at the Oroua Clubrooms in Kimbolton. It would be great if parents could set aside a little time to listen to and help your child with their speech. Also we will need transport on the 23rd for the winners and their supporters.

Whanau groups
The Whanau groups are working every Tuesday at 1.45 on their Enviro projects. We welcome all the community to help the students work on their action projects and their vege boxes, herb tyres, native areas, orchard and hot house. Thanks to David and Rebecca Stewart, Rob Scarrow, Nicole Philps and Toni Tibbits for leading this. If anyone has some old paint or tools they do not need or need attention like a broken handle, we would appreciate them being donated to the school.



Teachers Strike
As most of you are aware the teachers are going on strike for a full day on Wednesday the 15th of August. We expect all families to keep their students at home on this day. If you are unable to do this please contact the school. This strike has been well publicised - it is about getting a better deal for the children, There is a shortage of teachers and especially relievers. There is a 40% decrease in teacher training and many aren't choosing to teach. There are many older teachers retiring and younger teachers choosing other jobs which have better conditions or leaving for overseas. Some classes are unable to get a teacher. There is a huge workload especially with less funding for special needs students and more pressure on schools to cater for them without funding from MOE.

Skiing 31st August
We are booked in for our ski experience visit to Mt Ruapehu to go skiing with Kiwitea School on Friday the 31st of August. This event is of-course weather dependent so we do have postponement dates for early September but hopefully we will not need them, but we will only go if the weather is right.
We will be heading up the mountain a little earlier than usual as we need to be on the mountain between 7.30 - 7.45. Therefore we will need to meet at Ohakune by 7.00 - 7.15 at the Information Centre which is on the left hand side on the Main Street as you enter the Ohakune township. I would therefore recommend a departure time from Apiti by 5.15 - 5.30 (after having a substantial breakfast), as the trip will take 1 hour 40 minutes. From the Information Centre, we will head up the mountain for a great day's skiing. Lesson 1 is booked for 9 - 10.50, lunch will be from 11 - 11.30, lesson 2 is booked for 11.30 - 1.30 and from then on - free skiing. We will hopefully be able to ski all day until the mountain closes at 4.00pm.
Could parents please text, email or ring if you are able to help with transport or if you intend on joining us for the day skiing, with what you would like to do. We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
More information closer to the date.

Junior Stories -
Owen -  I ran in the Oroua Country. I ran 600 m but it was like 600 miles ! I came 7th in the 6 year old boys. It
was hard running up the stump. I got a big piece of lolly cake and my sister got a big bit too. There were lots of
marshmellows in the cake more marshmellows than cake.  Next year I will run faster.
Autumn - It was cool . I ran fast . I liked Dad cheering for me.  It made me go faster.
Kealee I came 4th . I was trying to come 1st but I didn't . But next year I hope I come 1st.  I liked the mud it was
cold and I slipped on the mud. Cross country is fun because you get fit and it is sometimes sunny.  I like Mum
and Dad came to watch me. I got a chocolate muffin.and it was yum.
Rydah  I went to cross country . It was noisy when the people were cheering  at me. I ran fast like a
rocket.
Oroua Science Fair at Waituna West
We hope everyone saw the science fair exhibits at Waituna West. Well done to all the Apiti Students !  This was
a great celebration of learning in science.


Student led Conferences
Due to other commitments the junior and senior student interviews are now on different days, however if you can’t
find a suitable time please contact Darren and Mary to arrange one. We hope everyone will take this opportunity
to meet and discuss progress and goals for their student. Research shows that one of the most powerful impact
on student achievement and progress is collaboration between parents and school. At Apiti we have a proud
history of success in this this area, Parents are well informed and support the students and learning well.  Each
student has a reporting google folder which is accessible by parents. This clearly shows achievement level,
successes, goals and next step. Students also use these as an important part of their learning journey.
E-Portfolios - Each student has made their own google site. We have linked these on our Weebly on our
e-portfolio button.  Please check you can open these. Please make sure you have checked your wiki space and
copied over everything as these will be closed down this month. Each student’s individual google site will be a
place to celebrate success, by students adding published writing, text, photos, video also a place to store photos.
Whanau Groups
Thanks to those who have been coming and working with the students, Dave, Rob, Rebecca Toni and Nicole.
Remember everyone is welcome, as there is a lot of heavy work at the moment to complete to make our school
and community more sustainable. The seniors only will be working with adults until the end of term.  We
appreciate your help and support on Tuesdays 1.45 - 2.30. If anyone has small native trees which they do not want
or are growing in the wrong place, please drop them off to school to the Expert Plantagators - Summer.
If anyone has any exterior paint (any colour) that we could use for our enviro school projects e.g hopscotch pattern,
painting up the  potato boxes, murals etc, it would be very much appreciated. Also if anyone has any mulch or
manure we could have for our vegie gardens, native area etc that would be fantastic!  Many thanks.
The Apiti Variety Show  -  
Students should have their costumes this week and be able to practise with all props. We thanks Maryann for
her expertise in this area and we look forward to Maryann supporting us on Wednesday afternoons. She will
work with groups who need help with their item for the Variety Show,  however everyone needs to practise
practise and practise. At school and at home. We would appreciate parents helping students practise. If you
have any queries talk to your teacher or Maryann. Please make sure you have all of your music, instruments,
costumes and props to share with her on Wednesdays.
