Bringing up concerns
If you have any concerns regarding anything that occurs at school then please remember to come directly to us to discuss this. At times we may not be able to share specific interventions that are in place for individual children as this breeches the confidentiality of our students, but we are able to assure you that we are being pro-active. Please remember that the most helpful people to discuss issues with are the people that are directly involved and in a position to speak into an issue. Discussing issues outside of these parameters will generally be unhelpful at best and destructive at worst.
Informative Morning Tea – How to monitor progress
Come along and join us for morning tea at 9.15am Tuesday morning. This week we will be discussing ways to monitor your child’s progress and how you can help your child at home.
Cheese Rolls Fundraiser
The RCS Parent Community Group are organising a Cheese Rolls Fundraiser. Please look out for an order form in your child’s bag. We need you help to make this a success!
- If you have any clean tarpaulins that could be used to cover the floor during production we would appreciate it.
- Production day will be October 31st. Please put it in your diaries now so you are free to come and join the production line. A couple of hours or the full day are fine – just whatever you feel you can manage.
- Start collecting orders. This can only be a success if we have lots of orders. There will be prizes for the families that get the biggest orders.

With summer coming up so soon it’s time to get that garden looking sharp.
We have year-old pine-tree mulch, that you need in order to suppress those weeds around shrubs and trees!
pH around 6.5.

Bring a bag, wheelbarrow, trailer or truck – all are welcome.
WE NEED HELP – we would also like to offer people a delivery service, so if you have a trailer and a couple of hours free on Saturday please get in touch with Mana.
Kapa Haka Performance – TOMORROW EVENING
We are now one sleep away from our first Kapa Haka performance as a School, tomorrow – Tuesday the 15th September, at Cashmere High School, in their Performing Arts Centre. We will be having a quick practise at our school at 5.30pm before departing for the venue (Cashmere High). We need to be seated at Cashmere High by 6.15pm and we are the first performance following a 7pm start. Children will go on to the stage from their seats. If you do not wish to stay for the whole festival, you may take your child home at any point following their performance. If you stay for the whole performance and your child is a bit tired the following morning, we will happily accommodate a later start for these children.
It is recommended that you bring a finger food snack and drink for your child if they have not had tea prior to coming, or if you think they will need something during the wait at Cashmere. We have a few children who will need transport from RCS to Cashmere and back, and I will be contacting those who have offered transport for this. As this is our first public appearance, please try to keep a clean Polo Shirt for the performance.
Finally, we have a few tickets left for the performance but these will sell out quickly. Please contact Heather asap if you would like these.
If you have any further questions, please come and see me.
