Our beautiful Hangi Garden entry was a Gold Award winner at the Oderings School Gardens' Competition held in conjunction with the Christchurch Horticulutral Society.
Dan Rutherford who is a landscaper and Gold Medal winner in many prestigious Garden Shows was such a fantastic adjudicator. His narrative about the individual entries was cleverly informed and gave respect and understanding to every entry.
As he talked about ours I was convinced that we would earn a Gold Award and by golly we did.
I am so proud of Bill, Trish, Janice and the children who put in so much creativity and work to make this such an ourstanding contribution to the story of our school.
It is the joy of something like this that makes being a principal such a privilege.
