Week 6 Update

Self defence sessions will start for the girls of Rooms 16 and 17 on Tuesday August 21st, after lunch. This course will run for five weeks. Next term, Rooms 18 and 19 will have their turn.

Special art project: On Monday Aug 27 and Sept 3, four children from each Year 7 & 8 class will be working with Miss Dunlop on the creation of a mural, to celebrate the cultural diversity of our school. This mural will be attached to the wall of the library which faces Sandwich Rd.

ICAS tests: This week we received results for the ICAS science tests. Beckenham students performed very well with a number of distinction certificates being awarded. Special congratulations to Briana Steven achieving a High Distinction.

Spellathon: Spellathon cards will come home in the next day or two. Please read instructions carefully and encourage the children to gather sponsors and learn their words.

Winter Sport: Aug 24th will be the final day at Hagley Park. Students will leave school at 11:00, as we have been asked to join other selected schools to welcome home our Olympians in Hagley Park. Sport will follow after this welcome.
Unfortunately the South Zone Winter Tournament was cancelled due to ground conditions. On Thursday Aug 30th, our A football, hockey and rugby teams will be competing in the Canterbury Winter Sport Tournament. Teams we will be leaving school at 11am and returning by approx. 3pm.

Mid Summer Night's Dream: We are having lots of fun on Thursday afternoons as we create drama, music, dance and art. Below are some pictures taken from this week's props making session.
