Matamata CollegeYear 8's - message from Mr Hills, Matamata College regarding your first day at College in 2017 - please bring your college PE gear to school on first day.
Reading logMake sure your reading logs are upto date so your teachers can enter the totals by 3pm on Wednesday 7th Dec. 

Remember there is 1000 house points for any house where every student has read at least 4 chapter books at their level.  Those points could make the difference to who wins the cup.

Sponsored Child This is our sponsored child, Peter Emanuel, who lives in Tanzania. He is 5 and will be starting school soon. We were sent this photo with a report showing the difference that our sponsorship is making as it is helping more children to come to school and they now have an area to play for sport and at break times. We pay for the sponsorship with a mufti day each year.

Lunch EatingAt lunch time, from today onwards the lunch eating area will be under the trees outside Rooms 3-6. At break 1 and 2, you MUST be on the quad if you are eating.

Year 8's leavingAs the year rapidly comes to an end, you might like to think about what you are going to do with all your work in your matamataint.school.nz Google Drive. If you wish to keep this work, you need to do either of 2 things:
  • You can create your own personal G-mail account and share any of your work to this new account (in the new account, you then make a copy so that your new account has ownership of the documents) OR
  • If you have lots of documents you own, you might like to do a 'Google Takeout' - this downloads all your work into a zipped folder onto your computer. Check out this video for instructions
All leaving students accounts will be archived at the end of the year. 
If you have any issues or questions, ask mrscurrie@matamataint.school.nz
