Again this year our Year 5-6 students participated in the Artsplash Music concert, singing along with hundreds of other school choirs in an evening concert at the MFC. Well done to you for the effort and time. You looked and sounded great.
For the first time this year we also participated in the Artsplash Dance. A group of our Year 7-8s did an amazingly clever and beautiful dance “Toybox”.
Mandarin is the additional language that we are learning at school. Part of our programme involves learning about aspects of Chinese culture so it was a very exciting time when the Wellington Confucius Institute and Yue, our Mandarin teacher, arranged for the famous and respected Stan Chan to come up and demonstrate and teach some calligraphy. We loved it!
Over recent weeks all classes have taken part in athletics skills sessions with instructors at ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie. The last session for senior classes involved choosing those with good skills or keen attitudes for the team for the upcoming WZ event. For the junior classes it was an opportunity to use the “proper equipment” for run, jump and throw. We had fun and showed some good improvement too.
Most schools from the Western area of Wellington took part in the netball tournament at Hataitai Courts on Tuesday. Many thanks to Sarah and Barb for their team management and umpiring. It was a great day.
“Brr it’s freezing out here” I said while trembling off the bus over to where everyone was meeting. After going over rules, our exciting day began. There were a few tough games and then again there were some easy games. I had such a fun day. Lilly
The whistles blew, the balls bounced. There were some ups and downs, some nice teams and bad teams but no matter the whole experience was amazing, nothing can compare. My mind will never forget the start of gathering schools and the cheers as each school entered. Maddie
Our Book Fair is a great success.
Estelle and the student librarians have set the books out and decorated the hall and beautifully. Students and their families, and even a few parishioners have been browsing and buying from the wide range on display. Our book character parade showed style and creativity. Both the senior and junior book quizzes were a challenge for students.
