Noel Leeming Offer!
Dear Parents and Caregivers
Please find below a Portal link for ordering a BYOD device through Noel Leeming should you wish to use this supplier. Note the Portal is always active and prices will reflect their “best price” at the time of going checking the Portal.
This link also provides options for accidental damage cover which, although adding a cost, may save some later costs. However, this is purely at the buyers discretion.
Currently the NL Blenheim store are hoping to have a partial area available for the Parents to collect and pay for their child's device if they chose the “pay in store on collection” option for delivery. Collection will be from 1st December 2016. One of the Team will contact Parents if they are ready earlier.
Charles Brasch Young Writers’ Essay Competition celebrates Landfall’s 70th
In 2017 Landfall will celebrate its 70th birthday. To mark the occasion, editor David Eggleton and Otago University Press are pleased to launch the Charles Brasch Young Writers' Essay Competition, open to writers aged 16 to 21.
The MGC Netball Club would like to increase the number of teams representing Girls College to 7 for the 2017 Season.
It is our desire to field 3 Senior Teams (x1 Premier Team and x2 Senior Teams) and 4 Junior Teams (x2 Yr 9 & x2 Yr 10 Teams). We are currently working on appointing quality Coaches for the 2017 Season and are excited with the interest so far.
Trial structure will be a little different next year, in that the first trial will be an open trial for the 3 Senior Teams (ie open to all Yr 9 to Yr 13 players). Following the Senior Trials, Yr 9 & Yr 10 trials will be held.
Look out for trial dates on the daily notices and on MGC Netball Facebook page at the beginning of the 2017 school year.
Applications open 1 August for funding in 2017. Anyone can apply – you don't need to have straight As.
