Principal’s Message, Week 3, Term 4

Tēnā koutou katoa,

I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. The weather was amazing and so was the time with family and friends. It is a shame about today’s weather. The teachers had a great day planning ahead on Friday, and preparing class lists for next year.
Cross country for Year 3-8 will be held this Friday 30 October, and will start at 9:30am. We hope to finish around 11am.
Order of events:
Year 8 and Year 6 boys
Year 3 and 4 girls + Te Kama year 2s
Year 3 and 4 boys + Te Kama year 2s
Year 7 and Year 5 girls
Year 8 and Year 6 girls
Year 7 and Year 5 boys
Year 1 & 2 cross country will be held Wednesday 18 November at 9am.

Some of our Year 7 and 8 students went to the police PCT challenge last Wednesday. The event was held in the API Hall. Our students competed with schools from around the area. The following team; Tanner, Cruze, Zahara, and Charlette came third with a time of 2:48, well done! This was no mean feat. The course was a challenge that most of us would find challenging.

We have a few things happening this term, so make sure to check out the dates on the school calendar of what’s coming up. Hot dogs – don’t forget this Friday we are having a fundraiser lunch for those who placed an order to support our Year 8 students going to camp soon. Thank you FCG for organising this.
