Week 5 Update

Drenched yet buzzing! Top team was full of teamwork, laughter, determination and water. An awesome event, everyone was fully focused and giving their best for their team. Ka pai Year 7 & 8! A big thanks to Sport Canterbury and the senior students from Cashmere (mostly ex-Beckenham) who came along to run the events. Will post more pics in photo gallery.


Athletics: A big congratulations at all who competed at the Zone Athletics on Thursday. Our team excelled with over 30 qualifying for the Canterbury Athletics in December. We think this is our best achievement ever.
Midsummer Night's Dream, one evening performance only: Now that we have such a large team travelling to Ashburton for athletics on Wednesday Dec 5th, we have decided not to perform our production that evening. We will now have one evening performance on the 6th (as originally planned) and a matinee the following week for Years 1- 6 students and parents.
Electronics Day: 12 Year 7 students will be selected to take part in an electronics day organised by Future in Tech on Monday 19 November. Working with ambassadors from the industry, the students will put together and programme a device on a Christmas theme. Students involved will bring home a notice on Tuesday.
Mural Completed: It was exciting to see our cultural diversity mural go up on the library wall this week. We have heard many comments about 'how awesome' it is. Well done to all of the artists involved, and a big thanks to Ms Hastings's husband, Bruce, for putting it all together.
