Week 3 Update

Athletics Day: We had a fabulous day for athletics yesterday, with many impressive performances. Great effort from everyone. This year we videoed the finals of each sprint and after school checked our results. There were a number of minor adjustments to placings, so this technology will be regularly employed in future sports days!

12 year old girls final takes off.

The start of the students vs teachers relay...

...and the student teachers are victorious!

We were impressed with the consistency of good high jump technique.

Yes that is pretty high; but even more impressive heights were jumped, with Lyle clearing 148cm!

Midsummer Night's Dream: Please make sure you have marked December 5th and 6th on your calendar. We are doing two performances of our production this year. All children need to be there on both evenings.
2013 Elwing Discoveries 'Year 8 Leadership Voyage': Last week I explained about this exciting opportunity (click 'Elwing' tab above). You have until Friday Nov 2nd to express your interest.
Inter-school sports challenge on Erin Simpson Show: Unfortunately this event has been postponed, hopefully we can be involved next year.
Classes for 2013: We are currently looking at our class placements for next year, please contact Ms Hastings if you see any specific needs for your child that we should take into account.
Top Team: On Friday Nov 9th in the afternoon Top Team is coming to Beckenham School. Last year half of our team took part in this full filled event at Opawa School. This year all our Year 7 & 8s will be involved here at Beckenham Park. Water is a key feature of several of the challenges, so a change of clothes needs to be brought to school that day. Parents are welcome to come and watch; a great opportunity to see your child in a group situation, where intiative, a proactive attitude and some persistence are necessary.
School Blog: You will see an extra blog link in the sidebar. The media team have taken over the regular updating of our school blog, worth checking regulary as it will be updated each Friday.
