Monday 5th December 2022 Mufti Day is this week!

Before and After : There is no question Sully needed urgent assistance. The SPCA Inspector freed him of his chains and walked him off the property to their van. A male Saint Bernard dog can weigh around 80 kilos, Sully had been starved. What a heartbreaking sight. This is the reason we are supporting this charity. It takes a lot of money to save animals, nurse them back to health, prosecute people who are cruel to them, provide vet clinics, medicine and food and safe housing.  Our fundraiser is on Thursday and your kind donations will be greatly appreciated. Remember - you can deliver your pet food and other items to my office before school.
We are also supporting Christmas Box. They help relieve some of the pressure that families feel at Christmas time through their food parcels. What a wonderful opportunity for us all to give to families in need.
Have a great week 8 everyone, it's our last full week at school. I'm looking forward to seeing you all out there in mufti - having fun while also supporting our community. Ms McPike

Friday 2/12/22 Mufti Day fun-draiser next week

“Dogs don’t make judgments about physical appearance or abilities, and they don’t care how big your house is or what you do for a living. They care about the quality of your character and your capacity to love.” Elizabeth Eiler
Happy Friday everyone. Have a great day with your grandparents. Remember it is our Christmas Box fundraiser next week, every $40 we raise for them, other organisations will bring that up to $70 retail.
Plus, our little furry friends at the SPCA - you can drop any goodies and food off for them in the mornings before school to my office. Have a fun and safe weekend. Ms McPike

All PAA students must come for lunchtime practice today to practice all our dances/songs for Grandparents Day tomorrow. It has a negative impact on the group when people are missing, so please remember!

Rāpare 1st - Lunchtime Minecraft: Pirate Cove Speedrun

First 4 teams lined up at 12:40 will be competing.
  • Make sure you have watched the video so you know how to play (google it)
  • You must have 4 or 5 members in your team
  • You will have 20 minutes to practise, then 20 minutes to find and mine as much gold as possible and get it in your chest
I could do with 1 or 2 helpers to load the servers, teleport to the start and hit the start button.  You wont get to play, but you can hang around and watch and it would be super helpful for me

Good luck teams
