PHOTOS: We are URGENTLY seeking photos of our local “older generation” from their younger days to display during our photography exhibition, InstaGran, which is being held at the Estuary Arts Gallery during September. Images need to be in digital format (we are happy to scan photos for you and will provide you with a copy of the digital file/s.) You may have seen our project featured in the Rodney Times recently. Please contact Theressa Butler directly if you can help: email@example.com
BEFORE and AFTER SCHOOL CARE: Thanks to a funding grant from Sky City Community Trust we are very excited to be able to offer all working families in our community before and after school care at a significantly reduced rate. We can offer FREE before school care (7.30-8.00am) and $5 after school care until 4.30pm (including afternoon tea!).
ROBOTICS: Every Friday we run an after school Robotics Club from 2.30-4.30pm. All primary and intermediate aged children are welcome to attend. $65 for 8 workshops, or causal rate of $10 per workshop. Afternoon Tea is provided. Please contact Theressa Butler to book: firstname.lastname@example.org.
AG DAY: Just a reminder that we are opening up our 2016 Ag Day to all primary and intermediate aged kids in our community. For more details please contact email@example.com. If you would like to book a table for a market stall (fresh produce, handmade arts and craft) please also let us know. There is a small change of $20 per table, however stallholders retain all profit.
POOL KEYS: We do not think we need to say that the swimming season is now over (although there is plenty of water around if you are keen). Pool keys need to be returned to the school office asap. Keys need to be recut for our next season (now there’s a happy thought!). The cost of an unreturned key is $50.
Don’t forget – we have an open door policy at Ahuroa School, please feel free to pop in any time.

NEW RED CROSS HAZARD APP FOR CIVILDEFENCE ALERTS:
Also get your phone updated with the … New Red Cross hazard app in Auckland. Auckland residents are being advised to change their current civil defence phone alert system to a new national Red Cross hazard app.
Find out more about the Red Cross hazard app and download it.
Nationwide app for civil defence alerts
“We’re changing to a national platform for civil defence alerts and we’d like to encourage all Aucklanders to download the Red Cross hazard app so they can receive real-time alerts to help them stay safe in an emergency,’ says Councillor Sharon Stewart, Chair of the Auckland Council Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Committee.Auckland will join Northland, Waikato, Wellington and other regions using the Red Cross hazard app to push real-time emergency notifications. The Red Cross hazard system is also being used by other organisations such as Geonet and MetService.
“The new app is free to download from the Apple store or Google Play. After 30 June, the current Auckland Civil Defence device will be decommissioned and will no longer be used to pre-warn you if there is an emergency,” says Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management Director, John Dragicevich.
Getting information during emergencies
“The Red Cross hazard app will allow users to stay informed about hazards and risks through their mobile devices.
However Civil Defence uses a range of different channels, including radio, television, SMS and social media to deliver timely information to make sure all New Zealanders know what they need to do to keep themselves, their whanau and their neighbours safe.”
Kind regards to all,
