We are enjoying catching up with everyone at conferences. If you have any feedback on this reporting process, please let us know.
A huge congratulations to Te Whanau Mahi Tahi; you were superb last night at the Cultural Festival. A very polished and entertaining performance.
Good luck to the Year 8s who are completing Year 9 testing at Cashmere this morning.
More best wishes go out to our two groups of chefs who are off to Timaru on Friday for the Maggi Kitchen Showdown competition.
We are just a week out from our ski trip and excitement is building in the hub. Today the Year 7s will be introduced to skis, boots and poles; a big thanks to our skiing families who have let us use their gear (on carpet!). We are in the process of matching up children who need to borrow gear with those who have gear to lend. This should be coming home on Monday.
Finally, a very big well done to all 16 of our speech finalists. Ruth Dyson was very impressed with all of the speeches. Yesterday was a most entertaining morning. Special congratulations to Pippa, Ella W, Oscar and Nathan who will be representing us at the zone speech competition next Thursday evening.
Thanks to Beth for her great photography!
