Dear Parents

Good luck to the children representing the All Saints Zone at the Southland Primary Schools Athletics on Saturday.

Also to Briarlee & Kyron Devery, Tim Richardson, Ben Bryan, Josh Livingstone and Rohan Murray who are representing our school at the Southland Primary Swimming Champs at Splash Palace on Sunday. These children will need to be at Splash Palace @ 8.30am for warm up. Mrs Richardson and Mrs Murray are our team managers, so keep a look out for them, as they will have the programme for the day.

Our prayers are with the Dudfield family this week.

Room 8 Class Happenings
This week in Room 8 we have been writing narratives that we are going to make into iMovies. It has been tricky for us to think about what effects or editing we want to include in out movie as well as writing what will happen as a story that we can read. We are all very excited to make these into movies over the next week and cannot wait to see them after all of the planning and work that we have done so far!

Physical Activities Leaders 

Last week some students from Room 8 and Room 9 attended a PALs training day at the stadium. We learnt some fun new games that we can play at lunch time as well as lots of different strategies to help us be great leaders. We look forward to running these games for other students at lunch times next term.
