University of Canterbury Kiwi Competitions
This year we are offering the University of Canterbury Great Kiwi English, Mathematics and Science Competitions for our Year 5-8 students. The Kiwi Competitions are written by New Zealand teachers for New Zealand students and are based on the New Zealand Curriculum.
The online competitions will be run in the last 3 weeks of Term 2 and the first week of Term 3. All participating students will be awarded a certificate and prizes will be awarded to top students in each year group.
The cost for a student to participate is $9 per competition entered. Registration is now open on Kindo and has been extended until Friday 8 May.
If you have any questions regarding these optional competitions, please email Mrs Purchase on email@example.com
At the end of last term, notices went home to those students who expressed interest in joining kapa haka for the remainder of 2020. Due to the lockdown, several children missed out on getting the notice. Therefore, if your child would like to sign up for kapa haka (Year 3 and older), please email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and room number. This will add you to the mailing list so you will be updated on events throughout the year.
To be a member of our rōpu, all tamariki are expected to:
Show respect to kaiako and group members by listening when others are speaking
Learn the kupu and the actions to each of our waiata (found on school website)
Come prepared for practice and performances, wearing a kapa haka uniform t-shirt and black leggings/shorts
Practices are every Monday at 2pm, and lunchtimes as required.
Netball and AIMS Games
We don't know yet whether the netball season or the AIMS Games will be going ahead or what they will look like if they do. However, you can still register your interest for these on Kindo and we will contact you as soon as we have more information.
An adult sized grey Kathmandu sweater was left at the swimming sports, please contact the office if it's yours.
