Latest Information on the Putangtangi Festival 2010

Ramere, tekau ma rima o Whiringa-a-nuku
Friday, 15 October 2010

Dear Parents/caregivers,


Here is the latest information for the festival which is nearly upon us.

Please take a seat before you read this as it is going to be a very early start for our tamariki on the day.

The bus will be leaving school no later than 6.00am.  Please do not be late as we NEED to be at the Civic Centre in Invercargill by 9.00am.  I want the tamariki to experience as much of the festival as possible.  We are scheduled to leave the festival at 4.00pm and expect to be back at school by 7.00pm. These festivals can run behind but we WILL be leaving at 4.00pm and NO LATER!

Most of the roopu have mobile phones.  They will call you if you need to know about any changes with times.  My mobile number is 021925255.

The children need to bring enough kai(food) to last them the entire day.  They will be away from home for 13 hours. Please do not load them up with sweets and fizzy drinks.  These will be confiscated if we find that the tamariki have any in their possession. I would appreciate food with sustenance. They will also need a couple of water bottles.  Please let us know if anyone needs medication etc.

The programme is as follows:

Please be seated by 9am.
Please note that visitors will not be permitted to enter the stalls or circle while groups are performing. The performances will be screened live in the foyer, via video transmission for people to view while they are waiting.
