    Huge Rains

    Some parents were concerned today regarding this weirdly wet weather.  We were not flooded and quite safe.  Remember, in emergencies we will always keep your child/ren safe with us until you arrive.


    Netball Star

    Congratulations to Alyssa W from Year 8.   Alyssa has been chosen as a rep for the Year 8 Wellington West netball team.  Apparently the competition was quite fierce so being chosen is a real credit to her application and skill.


    Netball

    The Saturday netball season has begun.  Due to student interest and great parental support we have three stunning teams competing this year: Emeralds, Sapphires and Rubies.   Wishing them all the best for the season.


    Sportstart PE programme

    We are currently reviewing and revising out PE programme across the school, all working on  Sportstart,  supported by one of the educators from Sport Wellington. A real strength of this programme is students learning to be thoughtful and effective communicators with regard to the activities and skills that they are learning which eventually will be applied on the field  and across various sporting codes.  So far we are very impressed with our how we are going.


    Commemoration Day

    Staff, students and parents gathered at midday to commemorate the ANZACs and all who have died and been affected by war.  Our senior students had placed our thirty white crosses for the fallen and the one for the unknown warrior. We processed to the site for prayers, readings, the commitment, blessing  and song.  Under the partial shade of a large oak and serenaded by tui, it was a moving but calm ceremony.

    E kore ratou e koroheketia
    Penei i a tatou kua mahue nei
    E kore hoki ratou e ngoikore
    Ahakoa pehea i nga ahuatanga o te wa.
    I te hekenga atu o te ra
    Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata
    Ka maumahara tonu tatou ki a ratou.

    Ka maumahara tonu tatou ki a ratou.

     

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    We will remember them.
