Week 2 Update

Term 2 has started with a hiss and a roar. This is the term of high school open nights, J-Rock, winter sport, cross country, ICAS tests, the art exhibition and much much more.

Open Nights. So far we have received information from Shirley Boys and Cashmere High. The Year 8 students should have brought flyers home from Cashmere High on Friday, if you would like a brochure about  Shirley Boys, your child can collect one from Room 19. I will let you know as soon as we get information from other schools.

  • Cashmere: Tuesday June 4th, 4pm - 6:30pm
  • Shirley Boys: Thursday May 30th, 4pm - 7pm
J-Rock: A notice is coming out via School -links today and in paper form on Monday. Please complete the reply form and get this back to school promptly. On May 21st, your child will be at the CBS Arena (we get there by bus) from 9am until you collect them at either 9pm or 11pm (if you are watching the show). Tickets are available through Ticketek, for between $27 - $33. In order for all families to view the show we are putting on a performance at school, along with the senior chorale and the drama workshop group, on Thursday June 6th, starting at 6pm. As May 21st will be a huge day, the children have the option of a 10:30 start on May 22.

Winter Sport: Over the next week there will be trials for winter sports teams during lunch hours at school. The competition gets underway in week 4, on Friday May 24th. At this stage we are urgently in need of netball coaches / managers, please contact Bruce Rodger before 3pm on Monday if you can help out:

Basketball: We have two teams in the Pioneer competition this year. The Beckenham Breakers have their first game this Friday (17th) at 4pm, the Beckenham Baskets will find out in a couple of days when their first Monday game is, as we are still waiting for their draw.

Leadership Awards: A number of Year 8 students will be receiving their bronze or silver leadership award at PRIDE assembly this Friday. These students will be notified on Tuesday.

Cross Country: This is taking place on Tuesday (May 14). You are welcome to come along and support the students. We have been impressed with the attitude and effort being displayed by 95% of the students during our training runs.

Canterbury Duathlon: Good luck to Naquita, Emily, Jacob, Jack, Claudia, Dom, Melanie and Georgia who will be competing in the Canterbury Primary Schools Duathlon on Wednesday morning at Ruapuna Raceway. Remember we are leaving school at 8am.
