Dear Parents and friends,
Term 4 is now in full swing.
Thanks so much to all of you who have helped us out so much this term by remembering to text or phone in before your child is sick or absent for any reason. Our text is 027 379 3137 or landline 379 3137. Thanks also for ensuring children do not arrive at school before 8:30am. These two things save us hours of office time and help get the day off to a safe and happy start. It is very much appreciated.

Last week our Year 6, 7 and 8 Students went on their amazing annual outdoor education adventure. This year we spent 3 days at Wainui Camp on the beautiful Akaroa Harbour.      Activity sessions included High Ropes, Kayaking, Orienteering, and Search and Rescue. We had a ball and learnt heaps. One of my personal highlights were the hours we also got to ‘hang out’ on a beautiful beach, paddle, skim stones and    explore the rock pools. This time was a lovely reminder of just how lucky we are to live in New Zealand and have such easy access to our environment.  Our senior students were once again a wonderful and happy bunch of children who ‘did us proud’.

This Tuesday I took 8 keen Year 6 cricketers to a ‘Hooked on Cricket’ Day at Hagley Park. Each school team was given a member of the Canterbury Kings Cricket Team as  their coach for the day (thanks to Ronnie Hira). We won 2 out of three of our games finishing in 3rd place. This was awesome considering my coaching efforts pre-tournament were       limited to the ten minutes we waited out on the grass for the bus to pick us up! In fact I was so impressed with the teams enthusiasm, talent and team work I have decided to enter a team in to the Year 6 schools competition which starts soon and we will have games on some Thursday or Friday afternoons. I will keep you posted as the draws come out.

Thanks for all of your amazing support,
Gordon
