To the following students who have started at Campbells Bay School
Jaehyeon Ryu, Zion Cristobal
On Monday 9 November we ran a virtual Student WeLearn conference. We explored all sorts of different robotics applications, filmed ourselves and then shared with our North Shore Schools.
We were able to see what other schools were doing with Digital Technologies in their schools and learn from other students. It was a great day exploring all aspects of the digital technologies curriculum.
Well done to all year 4, 5 and 6 Tech Whizz kids involved. I am super proud of the way you represented CBS and shared your awesome learning and knowledge with other North Shore Schools.
Hopefully next year we can run it again in person!!

No Parking Zone on Peter Terrace
There have been several cars parking on Peter Terrace in the no parking area, during the no parking time. This is very dangerous because it is hard for pedestrians to see cars coming up / down the road.
Please refrain from parking in this zone during the hours listed on the sign – 8.00 – 9.00am and 2.30 – 3.30pm School Days Only.
North Harbour Gym Primary Schools Artistic Gymnastics Competition
Last week, 93 CBS students competed at the North Harbour Primary School Competition at North Harbour Gym across two days – Wednesday and Thursday. This is the largest group we have ever had representing our school. We had a very successful two days, and for the third year in a row were awarded Top School!.

As we are currently working on class placements for 2021, we would very much appreciate notification if your child/ren will not be returning to Campbells Bay School in 2021. Please email [email protected] as soon as possible. It is also a Ministry of Education requirement that we are notified in writing.
We would also appreciate any enrolments for younger siblings to start in term one as soon as possible too! This helps us to plan for future classrooms should we need to open more.
- Charlotte Handley was second overall and first girl
- Greta Hutton was fifth overall and second girl
- Brooke Day was 17th overall and sixth girl. Congratulations!
Frank Hu Room 26, attended the World Stars of Junior Golf NZ tournament this weekend. He played in the Under 8 Competition and he placed third place at the tournament. He is one of the youngest players at this tournament and this is his first achievement! Congratulations Frank!

Calling all school Library Books = Please come back to school!
Please can you return any school library books you have at home this week. Please have a good look around and return any school books you find to the Learning Hub (Library) during your child’s class visit or before school, at lunchtime or after school. We are getting ready for our Scholastic Book Fair coming on 24 November and Book Week on 30 December so we need to pack the library away to make room for all the fantastic new books you can buy to support our school.
Book Character Parade
Fingers crossed for dry weather, we will be parading on the field as a whole school. A “Book Character Parade” is a special event that not only the children enjoy, so do the teachers! Children dress up costumes as their favourite book character and ideally march while carrying the corresponding book. Great fun is had by all and there is an award for one student from each class for best costume. Our wonderful student school council will be hosting this event with music and commentary.
Parents and special friends are welcome to come and watch also and of course if you want to dress up too, you would be most welcome to do so!
Parade will start at 9:30 and if it is wet weather, the years 0-2 will be in the PA and years 3-6 will be in the Hall. For more information about Book Week 2020, please take a look at the Special Book Week Website.

In 1 month’s time, I will start Te Araroa – New Zealand’s 3000km long trail, from Cape Reinga to Bluff, aiming to finish by mid June https://www.teararoa.org.nz/.
Whilst I’m walking the trail, I will be taking photos of our wonderful land to share with you all and walking off trail to take photos of my boys’ rowing squads at Lake Karapiro & Lake Ruataniwha.
Why Te Araroa??
– I love tramping, and like most people, I had big plans in 2020 for my 50th year celebrations.
– I was meant to be hiking and biking in Patagonia with my best mate. So when the Covid restrictions hit, I had to rethink my big plan & decided to move on to #2 on my big trip list – Te Araroa.
– I wanted to show my family & friends that we have all had plans squashed in 2020 and that you can bounce back and do something amazing, no matter how big or small, to move on and get on with life.
Why Westlake Boys High School Rowing??
– I love rowing & what Westlake Boys High School Rowing has given & continues to give to my family and the wider community.
– Westlake Boys High School Rowing aim to build “Champions & Champion Young Men” through the sport of rowing.
– This takes hard work from each rower, but also from a considerable number of people working behind the scenes to enable each rower to compete at the highest level & develop to their potential. The coaches, the committee, the school, the NZ Rowing Association & the families are all integral to the success of Westlake Boys High School Rowing.
So what better way to combine the two than by raising funds on Givealittle for Westlake Boys High School Rowing whilst I walk Te Araroa
And if you are able to help me fundraise, any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Keep an eye on FB or IG for my pics of Aotearoa in the meantime…
