Parking - 11th May 2018

A parent sent us a message about an online survey about parking. If enough people give feedback it may help GSNS get some more parking around our school.....
HI, it feels like there's a bit of a parking problem at the school at the moment. DCC are asking for parking feedback so this might be a good opportunitiy for people to raise this #DunedinCityCouncil want to know what people think about parking in Dunedin so we can improve the service we provide for our residents and visitors. To help them develop different options, they need feedback on the key issues, what works well and what they can improve. They are gathering information through the online form at www.dunedin.govt.nz/parking-feedback.

Heart Kids NZ supported by GSNS - 21st Feb 2018

Hunter of Room 13 decided that it would be a good idea to bring in someone from the Heart Kids NZ to talk about how they support children who have heart ccnditions.  Our visiting speaker, Marlene, talked to us about Starship Hospital up in Auckland and how they do such a good job helping parents and children, who sometimes have to stay up at Starship hospital for quite some time, getting help.  Hunter was very pleased that the children of Room 13 helped to raise money to help Heart Kids NZ.   Well done Room 13.
