IMPORTANT NOTICE - URGENT !!!
RAUMATI BEACH SCHOOL
19 June 2013
Dear Parents & Caregivers
Due to a weather forecast that includes severe winds, downpours, possible snow to a low level and a predicted wind chill of minus six, Friday’s WOW matinee performance has been cancelled. As it is a school day, we are unable to use the classrooms at Kapiti College to dress and ready our students and so would have to walk across from our school, which is not a safe option. We also need to protect our costumes and props for the Friday night performance.
We apologise greatly for any inconvenience caused. If you have a ticket for the Matinee, you can:
a) use your ticket for either the Wednesday (tonight) or Friday night performance. Please present your matinee ticket at the door.
b) put the ticket price towards a DVD (will need to attach your matinee ticket to the order form that will come out shortly)
c) receive a refund ($5 - see the office)
We’d like to thank Kapiti College for accommodating this change in plans and allowing us to have increased seating for these evening performances.
The horrendous weather this week has caused considerable changes to our performance schedule. This has been a difficult decision to make as we realise that it will cause disruption to many plans. We hope you appreciate our need to ensure your children are safe and that they are able to present a stunning show on Friday night (which is being filmed) with costumes and props intact!
On behalf of the WOW team and staff at Raumati Beach School.
REMINDER !!! REMINDER!!! REMINDER!!!

The Learning journey for the children of Raumati Beach School
Wharemauku – House made of flaxA drop of water (kopata wai) flows from the Maungakotukutuku Valley over the land through the township of Paraparaumu along the Wharemauku Stream. As it moves along the stream it gathers knowledge and grows on its journey to the sea (Te Moana).
Te Moana – The SeaThe drop of water (kopata wai) leaves the shelter of the Wharemauku Stream and now becomes part of the sea. It is pushed and pulled towards Kapiti Island in the distance and is continuing to gather knowledge on its journey to the Island.
Kapiti – JoinAs the (kopata wai) drop of water moves towards Kapiti Island it is pulled into the sky by the sun (ra) and taken to the peak of the island where it is dropped. From the peak of the island (Tuteremoana) the water drop (kopata wai) is able to look out across the Tasman Sea and imagine the wonders of the world and learns that its journey into the world is just beginning and that it will continue to grow and gather knowledge as it ventures into the world beyond the Kapiti Coast.
