Congratulations to the team of 24 children who competed at the CO Cross country yesterday. Three students, Casey (Y6), Grace (Y5) and Harvey (Y5) qualified for the Otago Cross Country Champs which are held in Dunedin. Mrs Daniel was very impressed with the attitude and effort from all the children.
Our Kapahaka group performed with the Cromwell Primary and Cromwell College Kapahaka groups last night at the College auditorium. This was a dress rehearsal for all groups prior to their Polyfest performances. Both primary schools are performing in Invercargill next week. The College is performing in Dunedin, later in September. The children were amazing! Thanks to Mel who has tutored our Kapahaka group to such a high standard, teaching new waiata and performance routines, and fostering leadership skills amongst the children. I feel so proud of our all the tamariki, and I know the staff and rest of the school were impressed when the group performed for them this afternoon at school.
We started athletic skills today in preparation for the Goldfields Athletics sports which will be held on Friday 14 October. Please note this day in your diary. We hope parents are able to join us for the day. Children will be rotating around the various disciplines when we have school wide athletics, developing skills in hurdles, sprints, distance, relays, shotput, highjump, longjump and triple jump.
Please return your notice re the Paid Union Meeting on Wednesday 7 September by Friday so that we can makes arrangements to supervise children if required. This note can be downloaded from the website, if it has been misplaced.
