Home and School
To all Parents and Caregivers,
Home and School had its AGM with an awesome turn out. We elected a new Treasurer, Clare Newton, Linley Gill has come back on for another year as Secretary, and our lovely Uniform Shop lady Bess Allan is happy to continue until the next AGM. I am returning for my last year as President. We elected a vice president, Sonia Hudson, to take my place next year. Thank you so much to these ladies.
Susan Ludemann stood down as Treasurer and Hayley Flett has finished on the Committee, because her youngest is off to High School next year. Thank you so much to both of you for all of the hard work you have done for Weston School. Thank you to Clare and Sonia for taking up these positions. We also have on the Committee Anna Spittle, Kirsten Welsh, Kylie Kane, Leigh Petrie, Nicky Ryan, Jen Fellowes, Dagmar Rohrbach, Jodie McWhirter, Reuben Groot, Kate Webster, Emily Anderson, Susan Ludemann, Wendy McCoy and Twyla Kingan.
Please see below a little about the parents elected at the AGM Meeting.
My name is Donna Carter, Proud to take on President of the Home and School Committee for my last year. A little about myself; my husband Brian has just started working for Network Waitaki. I am lucky enough to work from home with a hair salon beside our house. I am born and bred in North Otago. We love living in the Weston area. We have two awesome children. Elisha is in Year 8 and Joel is in Year 7. I have a passion for Weston School and for the past 7 and a half years I have really enjoyed working alongside a very dedicated and inspiring committee. Please see attached to this email a copy of my Presidents report.
My name is Sonia Hudson and I am looking forward to shadowing Donna this year and learning how the Home and School Committee runs. I feel it is important to continue on the great work the Committee does in supporting the school. I am married to Scott and we have two children Will and Rosie. Will started at Weston this year and Rosie will follow next year. While I grew up in Oamaru, I moved on to study when I finished school. In 2010 I returned to Oamaru and we now live at Enfield. This year I have returned to teaching Maths part time at Waitaki Girls High School.
My name is Linley Gill and I am happy to be taking on the roll of Secretary again this year for the Weston Home and School Committee. I have been involved with the committee since 2009 and really enjoy working alongside the other wonderful dedicated parents. I have two children, Kayleigh (now at St Kevin’s College Yr10) and Rico in Yr7. My husband Matt works at MGI Irrigation and I work part time at North Otago Hunting & Fishing. We have enjoyed bringing the kids up in the Weston community. It is very rewarding working along with the school and seeing the appreciation from children, staff and the community for the efforts of the committee during the year.
My name is Clare Newton and I'm excited to be taking on the treasurer’s role for the home & school committee. I'm born & bred in the UK, married to an Oamaru boy with 2 boys, the eldest having just started at Weston School
My name is Bess Allan. My interest with Home and School is the Uniform Shop which is open every second Wednesday. But please phone or email me anytime if you need uniform urgently or can’t make the Wednesday open time. I have been asked to say something about myself. I am a self-employed Gardener and am married to Bevan who works at Te Pari. Our son, Dean is in Year 8, he is the one with the big bandage around his hand at the moment as he has a broken finger. We love Weston School because the teachers encourage independence and self learning.
The next scheduled Fireworks meeting was to be Thursday the 7th of July – this meeting has been cancelled because we are so organised!! The next Fireworks meeting will be held Thursday 8 September at 7:30pm in the Whanau Room.
