Touch Team Update

Mon Feb 12 01:10pm

Good afternoon St Michael’s Whanau,


Firstly, a huge thank you to all parents and children who have already registered for touch. Your enthusiasm and support are greatly appreciated.


We are thrilled to announce that we have enough seniors (Year 5 and 6) to form a team, and we’re fortunate to have a coach in place. However, we are currently facing a challenge with our middle school team (Year 3-4). While we have enough children interested, we are in need of a coach to make this team a reality. Without a coach, we won’t be able to proceed with games and practices. If anyone within our community is able to step up and take on this coaching role, it would be immensely beneficial to our young athletes.


On another note, we unfortunately do not have enough children in Years 1 and 2 to form a touch team. However, we do have a coach ready and waiting. If any Year 1 and 2 children have forgotten to submit their touch forms or have a sudden interest in joining, please let us know as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT PRODUCTION NOTICE – PLEASE READ

Mon Dec 04 01:57pm

Hi everyone,


A few important reminders about the production!


Tickets: As per our last message, the evening show is well and truly sold out. There are no door sales and you will need your tickets for both shows, there will be people on the door collecting tickets and giving out programmes for both shows.


Seating: There are seats and bleachers available to sit on, there are no assigned seats, you can sit where you like (except if the seat has a sign that says reserved) but please be mindful of sitting randomly as there are big groups that would like to sit together. So if you see a gap please fill it and fill up the rows before starting new ones if possible. Every seat will be taken up at the night show.


UNDER 5’S: Under 5’s have to sit on your knee for the night show, as we didn’t charge for under 5’s we haven’t counted them as a seat. We appreciate your cooperation with this.


Wheelchair access: Please let us know if you or your family member will be in a wheel chair – they will come up the side of the hall with the wheel chair ramp but we need to know who and when if possible please.


Parking: Parking will be available on the school field via the Clayton Road carpark and the Clayton Road carpark. There will be someone there in a high vis helping with parking. Please fill up the field first before the carpark. The Lisa Cres/May road driveway and carpark will be unavailable to park in, please do not drive down.


PTA: The PTA will be selling yummy goodies at the day show and a sausage sizzle at the night show. CASH ONLY.


Thank you, We can’t wait to perform for you all!
