Thank you to our families who came to our community evening last Friday. It was fantastic to see so many people mixing and mingling and just enjoying being a part of our special community. For those who were unable to be there, I would like to take this opportunity to repeat our huge thanks for your generosity this term. In particular:

Supporting families in our community

  • To those who recently offered home baking, meals and grocery items for some of our families, this was very much appreciated.

Supporting the wider community

  • The next thank you belongs to those who brought items for the Wellington City Mission’s “Pack the Bus” charity run – Santa’s Christmas elves were kept very busy loading the many bags and boxes of food that we had gathered onto the bus.

Supporting our students

  • And finally, to those who sold raffle tickets and donated enough items for six raffle baskets, as well as 12 individual draws. Over $2500 was raised towards supporting EOTC in 2021.

Raffle winners

  • Ethan Caldeiro
  • Sima Croft
  • Alice Norrie
  • Corban Murray
  • Janette Hill
  • Jennifer Willingale

Reports, 2021 Classes & Stationery Lists

Expect to find your child’s end of year school report in their bag this coming Friday. Along with this, you will find the 2021 class organisation and stationery lists. Just a reminder that when students arrive back at school on Monday 3 February, they should bring their stationery with them.

Our teachers, support staff and board wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.
