Basketball Semi Final September 06 2017

What a game. There were some wonderful players in the Halswell Team who were just as determined as our children to qualify for the finals. The players tore up and down the court with some wild throwing followed by some magic buckets. We won and the celebration was noisy. Thank you to all of the parents, grandparents and friends of the children and school who turned up to support. Dave Langrell you are a kind and generous coach. Thank you for all that you do for these children. Fraser Ferguson and Toby Langrell have made it into the Pioneer All Stars Team. Woo hoo.

Te Reo for Beginners

Jared and Rochelle have been learning te reo and as part of our partnership with our parents they offered to take a beginners class on Friday after coffee. It's lovely to see the ways in which we develop whanaungatanga and ako in our school. Sharing resources and knowledge means we all benefit.
Thanks Rochelle and Jared. Thank you Stacy for making this part of your community liaison and partnership with us.
