WOW!!! We thought Term 3 went fast but looking at what is on during Term 4 this will be extreme speed.

Here we are already at the end of Week 2 for our final term of 2015.

This is an extremely busy term with lots of challenges, activities and learning opportunities.  It is also twinged with nervousness and excitement for our Year 8's as they prepare for their chosen Secondary School.  The Year 7's look forward to 2016 where they step up a notch with their leadership roles.

What is happening during Term 4: (Some of the opportunities to look forward to)

  • Athletics training in preparation for the South Taieri Sports Day on the 4th of November.  Closely followed by the Otago Champs for all students who qualify on the 17th of November.
