What’s happening this week?

Term 1 – Week 8
Wednesday 18th March

Wednesday 18 March is Auckland Walk to School Day.  MLPS is participating and has some special events on for the day.

First is Walk to School with a Teacher – attached is a map of where teachers will be walking from on Wednesday morning.  Teachers will leave their meeting points at 8.20am promptly.  This was a popular event last year and lots of children enjoyed walking to school with their friends and teachers.

Secondly, Mr Perry will be escorting children riding their bikes or scooters to school from Margaret Griffen Park – meeting outside the YMCA to leave at 8.20am.  Children will need closed toe shoes and a helmet to participate.

Thirdly, bikes and scooters will be able to be used at lunchtime on Wednesday.

Finally, there are 50 house points for the house with the most walkers and wheelers, 30 for second place and 15 for third.  Help your house win by walking or wheeling to school on Wednesday!  We are aiming for 300 children walking or wheeling, which would be a Marshall Laing record.
