Our Senior children started their two weeks of the Swim Well Programme at the AC Baths this week.  This programme is sponsored by Contact.
Our hardened Cross Country runners took part in the Interschool Cross Country Competition yesterday at Spa Park.  The weather stayed fine for most of the day, but unfortunately our Year 6 girls were caught in a sudden downpour.  They pulled through and all finished their race, still smiling!
Congratulations to Kasper Lenoir who came 3rd in his race (Year 6 boys).
Waipahihi came 4th overall in points and had a brilliant day.  Wonderful respect and sportsmanship was shown by all our students.
