Youth Leader DayMay 17th, 2013
A few days ago the student council went to the MERC down at the Long Bay reserve. We had heaps of fun and realized being able to work as a team was essential to be a leader. The experience was great and helped us bond into one student body. The raft building and canoeing really tested our cooperative skills which taught us lots of new skills that will come to help us in our everyday life. We hope this will encourage and inspire us into becoming the best house leaders we can for Northcross.
Make A Wish for ChantalApril 19th, 2013
The Make-a-Wish Foundation is set up to grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience, with hope, strength and joy.
They are currently in the process of granting a wish of Chantal Stallard of Room 22, Year 8.
Chantal was diagnosed with Leukaemia, and has been undergoing intensive chemotherapy treatment. Read more
The movie night sold 220 tickets and combined with the ice cream sale, cake sales, mufti day and donations raised $5700 net. A huge effort was given by all and the kids relished the opportunity to fundraise for Chantal. The 2 movies were thoroughly enjoyed and with pizza, magnums and fizzy drink to boot an amazing night was had by all. Chantal’s wish will take place soon so watch this space!
A Reminder to All Drivers around NorthcrossMarch 6th, 2013
A gentle reminder regarding the signage at the front of the school. For the safety of students and other cars there is a no U Turn restriction in front of Northcross Bus Bay and the drop off zone.
The area above the crossing and below the Bus Bay is a no stopping zone during these times. Illegal parking restricts the flow of cars and buses and incures a fine.
Our school gates are closed and locked each day for the safety of our students The sign at the front of the school gives the times: 2.50pm to 3.15pm. This is a requirement for Health and Safety of our community.
A reminder that the school gate is locked from 2.50pm until the last bus departs at 3.15pm.
I hope this will be of help with explaining the various requirements as set down by Auckland Transport. Please refer to the full guide in the Noticeboard Column on the left of this page.
Thank you Glen Spurdle DP
