Sausages Sizzles Are Back for 2022

Mon Aug 01 09:39am

Sausage Sizzles are starting up again soon and we need your help.


The Gladstone Sausage Sizzle is a parent-led fun(d) raising event held at school once a month. However, for obvious reasons, we haven’t had the opportunity to hold these fun lunches in 2022 – until now.


We hope to hold the first lunch Sausage Sizzle of 2022 on Tuesday 9th August.


However, in order to run these fun lunch options, we need parents who can give an hour to help with orders, cooking or serving.


If you’re interested in helping out next week or at one of our future sizzle, or if you’d just like more info please email Murray (murray.legrice@gmail.com). This is a fun way to meet more of our Gladstone children, teachers and parents so I hope to hear from you soon.

Library Update for the end of Term 2

Wed Jun 29 12:01pm

Hi Folks – many thanks to all the people who have helped their children return their overdue books – keep them rolling in.


If your child is in Years 1 and 2 and you would like them to bring home some holiday reading please feel free to visit the library with them before school each day or after school until 3.30pm on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. Year 1 and 2 children will not be issued books in their class library slots in the last 2 weeks as I have found it is very hard for the little ones to manage bringing books after a long holiday.


Yours in books

Library Update

Mon Jun 27 10:36am

Hi Gladstone Families – can you believe that we are nearly half way through the school year? As is always with this time of the term I am on a mission to get all the OVERDUE BOOKS back before we shut up for the holidays at the end of next week.


Please check your emails to see if your child(ren) have overdue books and support them in returning them asap. The email details how you can pay for lost books. Please come and see me if you want to talk about any library matters – before school every morning from 8.15am and after school until 3.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday.


Yours in books


Tania – Librarian

House of Science

Mon May 23 06:08pm

Local Businesses we need you! Are you interested in helping grow the future STEM workforce in this community? We are a House of Science member school and this charity is offering a great opportunity that will help every child in this region. For $3,000 a year you can ‘Adopt’ a House of Science resource kit, giving our local primary schools the tools to deliver engaging hands-on science lessons.


But wait, there’s more: every new kit sponsor that signs up before June 17th gets to nominate a school who will receive a digital microscope to keep and will go into the draw to win one of seven $100 packs of CookieTime goodies. Our teachers and students would LOVE a digital microscope! The kit sponsor also gets to put their logo on the outside of the kit, acknowledging their commitment to supporting the local community. Each kit reaches 1,000-2,000 students a year so this is a great investment. Contact the House of Science head office today on 0508 468 724 or email info@houseofscience.nz (Note: sponsorship is tax deductible as HoS is a registered charity). To find out more about House of Science, see https://houseofscience.nz
