Term 3 Update....

Hi again all,

Can I start with a sincere apology that the past few weeks have seen a total absence of blog updates.

Senior Camp:  Senior camp this year was a three day ski adventure to Porter Heights. What a fabulous experience it was for myself, Craig (class teacher) and out two support staff Kelly and Sue, to accompany our Year 7/8's on this trip.
We stayed at the Ski field Lodge right at the bottom of the mountain for the two nights and this meant it was only a 10 minute shuttle bus trip to the the slopes.
Three days of skiing, a lot of  great community time together and some very sore muscles latter... we headed back to school very proud of our achievements on the slopes.
For almost everyone it was their  first experience on a ski field (and for some the first time in snowy mountains).
Thank you so much to our wonderful senior class for sharing such a special time with me, and to our fantastic Board of Trustees who helped me ensure every child had the opportunity to attend the camp.

Some photos will follow shortly.

Swimming:  We are currently in the middle of our two week swim programme. All classes are busing to Pioneer Pool every day for a lesson with their great instructors. Thanks to everyone who is supporting this great annual initiative.
