Spectacular Supporter

Where would we have been on Thursday without our dedicated supporter and chief cheerleader.  Thanks for your enthusiastic support.

Winter Sports Exchange

The day and ground conditions were perfect for our annual Winter Sports Exchange which was hosted by St Joseph's (Oamaru) this year.  

We played hard and fair but the results didn't go our way.  
A big thank you to Mr MacKenzie, Mr O'Neill and Mr Brosnahan for spending the day with us, to coach, support and transport us.  

Thank you Mrs Matheson, Mrs Michelle and Rhys for their time preparing us for the exchange as our coaches.

Congratulations Ethan

Ethan has had great success lately with his singing.  
Keep following your passions Ethan.  Well done.

Completed Technology Projects

We really enjoy our Monday sessions at Taieri College where we take part in Technology.  Here are some of our latest completed projects.

Snapshot 7!

Snapshot 6!

Snapshot 5!

Snapshot 4!

It has been awhile since our last Snapshots but here is the next installment.  Are you ready for the next four Snapshots?

Making Music

Near the end of the term we spent time learning about music.  Our unit included music notation and playing the recorder.  It was a great success, although some parents may disagree when they were subjected to Thursday nights when dedicated students practised their recorder playing at home in preparation for their assessment.

Hadden Shield 2016

On Wednesday the 6th of July we hosted the annual inter-school speech competition with Outram.  It was a great evening.  

All students presented excellent persuasive speeches on a wide range of topics.  

We were very lucky this year to have two exceptional judges join us.  Many thanks to Lynne and Karen for doing this for us.

Congratulations to all competitors.  A special congratulations to our place getters.

Extra Spelling Quiz

Nearing the end of last term we had three teams take part in the Year 7 & 8 Extra Spelling Quiz.  They all enjoyed their evening out, although we didn't take any prizes away.  Maybe next year.
