Saturday Update - 23Apr22

Good day out there, South Nelson.

A few details to note, but first a big Thank You to our staff for involving students in Earth Day activities yesterday in the classroom, on our grounds, and out in the wider community!

  • SD8 & South Nelson digital calendar -
    • New order & delivery dates for Georama fundraiser.
      • Ordering now open through munchalunch from April 20 until May 4 at midnight.
      • Delivery week of May 16.  More details to come via email to those who place orders.
      • In the past we have aimed to get the plants delivered in time for Mother's Day. Unfortunately due to a reduction in spring sunshine so far this season and many cold nights, the crop is a bit delayed in growth.  It has been recommended (and requested) that we push our fundraiser back a bit to account for this. Please see below the new Georama fundraiser information - purchase through Munchalunch account.  Thanks for your understanding and accommodation!
