Well done to all our students who have accepted the 2-fold challenge of Knowledge-a-thon. They are busy learning the answers to the 100 questions in the booklet given out last week, as well as seeking sponsors. We encourage students to use the holiday break to sign up sponsors. We are fund raising to buy more technological equipment to support our students' learning. Some people choose to make a donation instead of a sponsorship per correct answer. Our previous fund raising efforts have made a significant contribution to what we can offer our students and we appreciate all the fine efforts made by our school community. Challenge day is early next term, Friday 28 October and then we will be asking the students to bring in their collected money.
Alternative Week - Day 1
In Hillary Pod, year 7 and 8 students are having a wearable arts competition to see which costume has the most meaning to it. The groups are between 4 and 5 people with year 8s and 7s. Each person has brought their own recycled materials and items to create their masterpiece. The materials they used were plastic, cotton balls, bubble wrap, feathers, egg cartons, ribbons, old clothing and sacks. The skills they are learning and used are: being creative, collaboration, school values and planning. The competition is fierce and with so many people working hard to make the best wearable costume win! By Aimee and AlyHillary Pod
Hip Hop Competition
In early September the Boys' and Girls Hip Hop teams went to Hornby High School for the day to compete in the Canterbury Championships. It was an amazing day watching the top dancers from Canterbury compete against each other. After their original performance, both teams were called back for a rerun before the final decision was made on the winners. When the anxious wait was over, both teams were announced in 3rd place.
