Week of 22 October 2013

No Dogs Allowed in School during school opening hours. We have been reasonably liberal on this, but have found recently a couple of situations where children have been frightened by dogs that have been brought into school (on leads). We ask that parents please refrain from walking their dogs in the school grounds (whether on leads or not).
Please do not enter the grounds during school time with a dog.
Reminder Teacher Only Day - Friday 8th November.  School will be closed but we will be operating child care from the school.  Please contact the office, office@ghs.school.nz should you require care.
