This week’s message from the Principal:

The gorgeous spring-like weather has been a boost to everyone’s mood this week and I have noticed lots of classes out enjoying class games and physical activity in the sunshine.

We sent two Year 5 and 6 netball teams to the Netball South tournament in Alexandra yesterday. Our teams were excellent ambassadors for our school and it sounds like they played some excellent netball against teams from schools in Queenstown, Arrowtown, Millers Flat and Alexandra. There are photos later in the newsletter.

The sunny weather has got enthusiasm for our Enviro-group and horticulture club buzzing. Ray and Mrs Pavitt had a huge team of willing workers taking care of our school environment at lunchtime today. An enviro-schools focus has been important at our school for many years. It is great to see our students continuing to put time, energy and care into keeping this going.

Waste Free Wanda was an excellent show for our students held in the hall on Monday morning. Wanda’s environmental messages were delivered in a fun show with lots of songs. Thank you to Anna van Riel and the Otago Regional Council for bringing the show to schools in our district.

Kind regards
