    Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

    We invite you and your family to participate in our upcoming Laps for Lachie event on Saturday 7th December at Hillview Christian School. We will hold a junior event for our Year 0-4 students 6pm-8pm, and an overnight event for Year 5-8, 6pm-6am.

    Registration is $5 per person (please send cash to the school office). Registration includes: entry to the event and a Lachie Challenge silicone wristband. We ask that participants direct sponsors to https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/the-lachie-challenge to make donations. This event is not a race, nor are you asked to collect sponsorship based on the number of laps you complete. Please seek donations on the basis of taking up the challenge.

    In a relay style, there must always be one participant moving around the 400m track. Teams of four may consist of family and friends — age is no limit and dress up is encouraged! There will be a BBQ running with sausages for $2.00, and four high school bands will perform, along with other entertainment/games for the evening.

    We understand that not everyone will be able to stay for the duration of the event, so we are offering early pick ups at our Check In and Check Out tent. Please don't shy away because of the length of the challenge — we still want you involved!

    If you do not wish to participate in the event itself, please still come along for a sausage, to listen to some local musicians (6:15-9pm) and to be a part of our special St Martins community.

    Thank you,

    The Lachie Challenge Team and The Student Council

    Well done to the class representatives and teachers who participated in the Sutherland Smoothies challenge on Thursday 31st October. I think it's safe to say that some of us did it hard!

    Proudly introducing our student volunteers who are either shaving their hair or having it cut off at our assembly next Tuesday at 2 pm. One of our students, Tamar, is donating her hair to Freedom Wigs in Dunedin. Please support this event so that we can continue to support Lachie!

    Here at St Martins, we really appreciate the support and generosity that people have shown for our Lachie Bands. Walking around classrooms and the playground, many children and several teachers wore the bands throughout the week. If your child doesn't have one ready for next Wednesday, you can head to the office to grab one.

    Next event, Shave Ya Lid, Tuesday 5th Nov. Watch this space for photos of those who are getting the chop or shave (including some girls!). WOW!
