Parents and caregivers can now purchase a swimming pool key for the swimming season. The cost is $45.
Parents need to come to the school office to collect the keys themselves (we don’t send keys home with children). They need to sign the ‘Rules of hire’ form and they will receive another copy to keep (a good place to keep this is on the fridge door!).
The caretaker and principal will be on annual leave from Thursday 21st December 2017 until 10th January 2018. During this time the pool will be closed.
The reason is that there are very stringent health and safety regulations such as mandatory 3 hourly water testing and the need for a fully trained supervisor to be available at all times. Then there are other tasks that must be completed such as the cleaning of the changing rooms/toilet and tasks related to the pumps, filters, chlorine bins, other chemicals etc.
Our caretaker (Dean Wilkinson) will have the pool ready for use again on Wednesday 10th January 2017.
Please return any CLEAN Richmond School Sports Shirts to the office as soon you have finished your sports for the year. It would be a great help not to have to chase any up this year – thank you!
Please return any orders for New Entrant photos to the office by MONDAY 11th DECEMBER – Thank you!
Bring along a picnic or takeaway dinner and come to see our talented pupils perform an end of year show in our outdoor performance area at school. The Rock Band, Senior Jump Jammers, Senior and Middle Syndicate Choir and Kapahaka groups will perform along with a very special guest singer!
There will be seating outside Room 4 for elderly family members only. Bring along low seats, cushions or bean bags to sit on.
Performers need to be seated in front of the stage area by 5.50pm. Performers are to wear black shorts and a white or red top if possible please.
