Thanks Coffee Club Meadowlands!
Support your local Coffee Club and the Parents and Friends of Howick College at the same time: mention Howick College when you grab a coffee or lunch at Coffee Club Meadowlands, and they will donate a percentage of your purchase back to the Parents and Friends Association.
We held a working bee in the school gardens on Sunday 26 March and worked on two areas that were dark and overgrown. These areas are now cleared and tidy, letting much more natural light into the nearby classrooms. The group were joined by some faithful helpers, also new helpers including students, board members and staff - thank you all so much for your help.
Look out for our next working bee coming up in Term 2. If you would like to join us at one our our working bees planned for 2017, please email Nadine: email@example.com or keep an eye on our Next Week newsletter and website.
First Project of 2017
Have you popped in to the school and seen the smart new markings in the carparks? This was completed during the holidays as the first Parents and Friends project for the year.
A big thanks to Ross from Line Marking Services Ltd for the fine job!
