This week’s message from the Principal:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,

There are some exciting things happening around our school at the moment with all of our syndicate teams continuing a strong focus on inquiry learning to keep students engaged and productive through to the end of the year.

The junior team are continuing to look at how to protect our lake and waterways and are working with Fish and Game and the Central Otago District Council on their plans.

The middle school team have embarked on a healthy eating inquiry.  They have a trip to the Polytech kitchen and a restaurant kitchen and have a master chef competition planned.

The senior school are focused on what makes a good production. The senior students are taking control of this year’s production with set, costume design and staging. They are also designing the tickets and programmes. We hope to have tickets available for sale early next week.

I am really looking forward to joining our tamariki and whānau on the Noho Marae trip to Bluff on Friday. Thank you to Karleigh for taking the lead in organising this experience.

Congratulations to our athletes who competed at the Zone sports yesterday. The teachers who supported the team were very impressed with behaviour and sportsmanship.  I have had a quick glance at results and our children did very well with 26 qualifying to go through to the Central Otago Athletics being held in Alexandra next Tuesday. Permission slips will go home with children on Friday.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu

A happy bunch of athletes at the Zone Sports
