Week 11 Update
Year 8 Camp: What a fabulous two days we had of action packed leadership development. We kicked off with an inspiring session run by 'Full On' and followed this with a raft of practical activities, Gemma - our guest speaker from What Now, lots of opportunities to 'Sharpen the Saw' and brief reflections on how we were applying the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. As teachers we were hugely impressed with how all of the Year 8s responded. By the end we were all shattered, but still smiling. Check the photo gallery for more pictures, we have heaps more on the server at school.
The last week of term is a busy one...
Class Speeches: All Year 7 & 8 children should have finished or nearly finished writing their speech. These will be delivered to the class early in the week, with the Team Speech Finals on Thursday at 11am in the Hall. Parents are most welcome.
Fair Trade: We are hoping our quest speaker has recovered from illness and will be with us on Tuesday afternoon.
No technology at South this week.
We are taking part in the national wide Shake Out earthquake drill on Wednesday morning.
House Picnic is on Wednesday from 11:30. Children are to come in House colours and are encouraged to arrange a shared picnic with friends in their House. House Captains and their deputies are arranging games for Year 1 - 8.
The finals of the School Talent Quest are on Wednesday afternoon in the Hall starting at 1:30. Parents are welcome.
On Friday we farewell Caroline Radcliffe, our much loved receptionist, with a special assembly starting at 9:30. A number of children are performing at this assembly, including the Drama Club and Te Whanau Mahi Tahi.
