Thank you so much to our sponsors - school families; Leon & Natalie Bathurst & family of Born to Build; James & Janine Lee & family of FNZC and Tara Thorowgood & family of Tara Home Designs for your support of Coatesville School, as well as the continued support from Flow Academy in Albany.

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.

Approved grant for $2000 towards high jump mats!
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.
