With a roll of just 50, the school is one of seven rural primary schools in the North Island to receive the grant for shade sails. The money was raised from 10 Ladies Night fun events held by Farmlands in rural areas late last year. Farmlands innovation and communications manager Allister Bath- gate says the idea came from one of the team at Farmlands head office. He s involved with his local school and was aware that creating adequate shade is a real issue in rural schools. More than 200 schools applied for the grants. Peria School principal Jason Tane says the students think the grant is wonderful. They are establishing a shade haven team to look at where they are playing in the school at the times the sun is strongest and investigate how they can create shade in these areas, including incorporating planting from the school s native tree nur- sery into their designs. Clean-up: Rooms 2, 3 and 4 from Riverview School went to Opito Bay on March 16 to take part in a beach clean-up. The children are at present studying whanau and as part of that they all have responsibilities. The school says it's good for children to take responsibility in a collective action like the beach project. Juniors unite to clean the beach Leaders at school Role models: Front row, from left: Deputy head prefect Jasmine Birch, head girl Lilly Romley, prefect Malandra Dalbeth and prefect Orapun Khonglee. Back row: Prefect James Whitehead, prefect Brandon Erueti, head boy Taituha Ashby and prefect Robert Ashdown. The Kaikohe Christian School has appointed its prefect leaders. The school says the roles of its prefects are to be role models; to serve the student body by monitoring that school rules are kept; men- toring where possible; act as a reference group for the principal -- and to represent the school in various ways such as welcoming visitors and hosting them at official functions.
