News & Events
Labour Weekend is our big fundraising weekend. It's one big fun weekend with all parents, and many of the community involved. Come and join us !!!!
Pet Day / Group Day
Linkwater School holds an annual Pet Day usually during the first week of Term four, co-ordinated by the school community parents. The day has indoor and outdoor events and all children get a choice of the scheduled categories i.e. either indoor crafts and/or (farm or pet) animals or both. The winners of the specified scheduled categories then proceed to Group Day, which is hosted by a volunteer Marlborough School, and then if successful can (voluntarily) proceed onto the annual Marlborough Agricultural Show. Information for this activity is given out prior to the end of term three to enable the children to prepare their craft or animal over the term break in readiness for Pet Day.
This is a very cool way to end the week and is a time that is most enjoyable! Parents and teachers take a small group of students for a range of activities. Past examples include judo, chocolate making, scrap booking, stone carving, Lego, lunch making, games, mobiles, Bushman Bill and origami. Funky Friday is a great way to cater for a range of diverse needs and introduce students to new skills. We run this for a few weeks each year if we can get support from our community to do so.
Please contact the school if you can help.
