Matamata Intermediate

BoomerangsDid you know that boomerangs come back.  Mrs McLennan kindly lent her very sharp knife to some students last week to cut some cakes for their class and although it is not a boomerang, I specifically said to the two girls who borrowed it, that it had to be returned to me. Unfortunately it wasn't, which is very disappointing. Fortunately for Mrs McLennan, Mrs Muter found it and returned it to me.  The point of this notice is that if you borrow an item from someone  then you are responsible for making sure it is returned. It is called consideration and courtesy. 2 of our big C"s.  
Staff kindly remember that there is to be no borrowing from the staffroom unless you have run it past Mrs McLennan.
