Kia ora whanau,

It has been a busy week in our middle school - triathlons, leaders and lifesaving.


Thursday this week saw the announcement of our Year 10 leaders and also our Year 8 house leaders. This is usually all done and dusted by now, however this year a huge amount of interest in the positions made the process of selection extremely hard and of course longer than anticipated. Potential leaders were asked to write to Mr Johnston outlining the reasons and the skills they wished to bring to the leadership team. The applicants were then interviewed by a panel, consisting of senior staff and two senior student leaders. It then came down to an elimination process and discussion among the panel.  The applicants were advised of the outcome on Thursday morning. Congratulations to those who put themselves forward for selection, it was definitely the hardest group that we have had to choose from, you can all be proud.

Our year 10 leaders for 2017 are - 
Head Boy Daniel Cunningham
Head Girl Amelia Lockhart
Academic Leader Cara Bosman

On Wednesday the 22nd of March, years 7 and 8 held their annual triathlon at school. Some children chose to complete the event by themselves and others chose to compete as part of a team where they either swam, ran or biked their leg of the event.  It was a successful day and there will be a number of children going on to compete in the Cooks Beach triathlon on the 4th of April. We have some photos of the day below.

Hot Water Beach Day

Our year 7 & 8 students are at Hot Water Beach today putting onto practice the skills they have been learning at school around water safety. A big thank you to the HWB Surf Lifesaving team for their time and effort in assisting with this important learning.
