Following the great success of previous competitions, North Shore Trampoline Club have decided to host another regional competition. The competition is open to all Primary, Intermediate and Secondary school students who live in the North Harbour region.
These competitions are a fun opportunity for kids who love to bounce whether it be at home, school or club to test their abilities against other athletes. Who knows, where it may lead, they may find themselves working their way to a place at the Olympic games… the sky is the limit!
Thank you so much to Eden Ltd and Marin Construction Ltd for coming on board as main sponsors of Ag Day and supporting Coatesville School! Look out for their logos on the promotional poster and Ag Day tee-shirts.
As a parent or friend of the school, you may be interested in supporting Coatesville School so I thought I would share with you the Ag Day sponsorship opportunities available.
Ag Day, this year on Saturday, 19th October, is one of our main fundraisers in the school year and is considered a school day at Coatesville School with the usual judging of best lambs/goats/pets/plants etc followed by all the exciting stalls and activities. It attracts the entire school and their families and usually the wider Coatesville community and beyond! 1000-2000 people can easily attend our traditional Ag Day.
For your official information, please see here the guidelines to our sponsorship packages regarding pricing and categories. However, for more detail please see further below.
Main sponsor: $2000 - this automatically places the sponsor in the silver category on our SPONSORSHIP SCOOP webpage (click to view) where business logos are displayed under the different categories (support/bronze/silver/gold) with links to their websites/product/contact information. As a main sponsor your logo will be displayed on:
the back of the Ag Day tee-shirt

Every bit of support we can get is very much appreciated as the school has to raise funds over and above what the Ministry of Education allocate them in order to continue to provide a quality standard of teaching and its environment for our children. I hope you find this helpful information, nevertheless, please do not hesitate to contact me with any further thoughts or questions, or to simply sign up and confirm you or your business as sponsor!

New Zealand has been rocked by the tragic losses that occurred in Christchurch on March 15th 2019.
The Coatesville School Student Leadership team, along with the staff, felt that it was important to acknowledge and honour those who have been affected.
Today in our assembly the Student Leadership spread messages of Love, Tolerance, Kindness, Respect, Unity and Solidarity. After a minute of silence, they and the whole Kahu team led our school in a beautiful rendition of the Maori Waiata Te Aroha.
Students were also invited to take part in sending messages of Love, Tolerance, Respect and Tolerance by creating paper hearts with heartfelt messages on them and by adding their fingerprint to a peace sign mural.
The paper heart messages will be displayed on the library window and the Peace sign mural will be presented to a local Mosque.
Below is a compilation of photos of the students creating their messages.
We are excited to have on board our generous sponsors for the upcoming kids disco on Friday, 5th April. Not only does this allow us to put on a fun time for the kids but it also helps with covering our costs and thus raising funds for our school. Thank you so much to our school families; Leon & Natalie Bathurst & family; James & Janine Lee & family and Tara Thorowgood & family for your support of Coatesville School, as well as the continued support from Flow Academy in Albany.
We are delighted to announce that The Trusts Community Foundation has kindly approved a grant for $2000 towards the purchase of replacement high jump mats. A collaboration of our BoT, FOTS, TTCF and personal donations have meant this will be possible! These mats are more in line with the height of mats provided at inter-school athletics meets and will mean a greater opportunity for our students to compete well at these events. Thank you so much to the TTCF for assisting us in making this happen!
For further information regarding this project, please read on: The total cost to purchase the mats, a storage trolley as well as delivery, comes to approximately $7,500 including GST. Therefore, if you have indicated in the past about contributing to sports equipment and/or are now interested in donating towards this project, please contact Heather Seel (click to email) or phone/text: 021 64 749. Alternatively, please deposit what you can into the school account: 12-3059-0307932-00 with reference: high jump mats donation and your name so we can thank you! We would be very grateful as every bit of help we can get means funds can be spent in other identified areas.
