Calendar art

Make sure you have placed your order for your child's landscape calendar art. This closes on Monday the 28th of September. Details for ordering are on the form that came home.

Camp Forms

Many thanks to those who have sent back health profile forms. We are looking forward to the remaining 40 coming to school tomorrow. Spare copies were handed out today, for those who had lost theirs. 

Rubik’s Cubes

We have had a number of issues with Rubik’s Cubes going missing in our hub. As a result, we have made the decision to ban these. Please ensure these are not coming to school.

Zone Speech Competition

A HUGE congratulations to Zoë Clarke and Max Graham for competing in the South Zone Speech Competition on Monday evening. Both students did a fantastic job presenting their well-written and entertaining speeches. Max placed 2nd in the Year 8 category. He had the audience in stitches at his personal storytelling. Well done to you both!

Canterbury Winter Tournament

It was a glorious day to be out playing sport today for our hockey and netball teams who qualified to represent our kura in the Canterbury Winter Tournament. Many thanks to Jules, Miranda, Anna and Nic who managed the teams and to Maddi, a former student who reffed the netball games. The adult helpers were full of praise for how well the children played and for how they conducted themselves at the tournament. 

Sports Shed Painting

All going well with the weather, I am hoping to have a good go at finishing the sport shed mural on the second Tuesday of the holidays, in the afternoon. If your child is keen to help, please send me an email and I will confirm times.
