PB4L Big push for the next two weeks is UNIFORM and GROOMING! Wear it CORRECTLY and wear it with PRIDE. Remember if there is a reason why you can't see ET and she will see what she can do to help you.


Wainui Buses - because Metlink is 80 bus drivers short they have had to cut the South school bus (we will get it back when they have drivers). The boys who catch the South bus need to catch public buses. There is one that arrives at 3.05pm which has a lot of members of the public on it and one that arrives at 3.08pm that is empty but will pick up members of the public along the route. Remember if you are on a public bus you need to wear a mask if your 12 years and over. You also need to make sure you use friendly language, stand for adults if they don't have a seat, speak quietly.
