General
Conservation Week Colouring CompetitionA colouring  competition to raise awareness of the  endangered Whio (Blue Duck) Entries need to be posted to the Dept of Conservation address on the entry form by 3rd of November. It would be great if we could have lots of MIS students completing entries and raising awareness. 
If you would like Mrs Raymond to send your entry you need to give it to her ( Art- Room 19) by Monday  30th October. Find the ENTRY here 

The Whio is one of our very special birds only found in New Zealand - with only 3000 birds left, Whio are rarer than kiwi. It is one of only four ducks in the world living on fast-flowing rivers, and is an indicator of clean water and a healthy environment. 
Guitar/Singing/Piano/Keyboard lessonsSpaces are available for any students interested in learning Guitar, Singing, Piano & Keyboard lessons this term. Register your name with Mr Barratt if you are interested in taking up this opportunity.
