The Chatbus is finally here! After two years of chipping away at this project the Chatbus South Trust is pleased to announce that this service will begin next week in five Invercargill schools providing free counselling for students. Myross Bush School is one of these schools and the Chatbus will visit us each Tuesday
Reminder: To start the year off we are holding a community picnic TONIGHT here at school. It will be followed up with our 'Meet the Teacher' evening. The night will go as follows:

5-6pm - Community Picnic on the school grounds (bring your own picnic blanket, chairs and food). We will have bouncy castles, lawn games for families to engage in and the coffee cart will be available.

6-7pm - Gather in the Activity Centre for the 'Meet the Teacher' session (meetings in classes will follow after this). Students will be supervised in the playgrounds by staff from 6-7pm.
Our annual school Working Bee is set for this Saturday 13 February. Come join our school community for a couple of hours between 9-12pm. Many hands make light work and a lot of fun!

We need help with: 
  • painting (bring big and small paintbrushes, sheets, etc)
  • drains cleaned along footpaths
  • line trimmers/weed eaters to clean up edges of our grass, fencelines and carpark
  • weeding gardens and trimming trees/bushes (bring wheelbarrows)
Thank you in advance for your help. The Coffee Car with be there with a free hot drink for each helper.

We are in search of people who would be able to help with covering new books throughout the year. If this is something you would like to assist with, please email 
Can you help? Do you have a ram, an old ewe or a young cattle beast that you would be happy to loan to us to graze the overgrown grass in our small paddock next to the main car park? If you can help please contact the school Office. Thank you!
