Ronald McDonald House

Do you know what Ronald McDonald House is?
Do you know anyone who has stayed in Ronald McDonald House?

Room 4 and the Student Council have decided to hold a Make n Bake day on 23rd September. 
They were inspired to do this to assist a local family who are grateful for how the Ronald McDonald House helped them when their child was ill. 
They want to raise funds to provide Christmas dinner for families in 
Ronald McDonald House this year.

Our students are the community kind and wish to help too.

Make n Bake Day
Monday 23 September
at Interval
Come and buy some yummy things to eat
and join in and be
the community kind.

Guest Speaker Survey

Guest Speaker - Bronwyn Torrie

Today Bronwyn Torrie came to talk to us about her job as a Journalist. 
She works for The Dominion Post.
We showed her our newspapers we published recently.
We worked out that the hard bits of writing for a newspaper are the same for her as it was for us when we published our newspapers last term.

She's an Awapuni kid! When she came to our school there were only about 120 kids here.

We were able to ask lots of questions.
And then she asked us a question - what job do you want to do when you leave school?
So tell us - what do you want to do? Leave it as a comment.
