Inter school Swimming Sports

The best swimmers from all of the local schools attended the Interschool Swimming Sports on Monday 18th February. All our students swam very well, competing well with the best from Te Mata, Lucknow, Clive and Hereworth. We had huge support from our school parents. Mr Kinsey did a great job on the microphone, Mrs McNeill coped well with all the names at the recording table and Mrs Field kept all the children under control by getting them to the marshalling area on time.

HNP Swimming Sports

On Monday 11th February, our Year 4-6 students participated in the annual swimming sports at the Village Pools. They took part in championship and non-championship events. Many parents attended to support the swimmers in action. Chambers, Duart, Campbell and Joll Houses were well represented. Our champions for Year 6 are Gus Andrews and Kate Richards, both from Room 15! Congratulations to the runners up - Jack Hutton and Hannah O'Keeffe, both from Room 15 too! qWell done to all swimmers who participated.
We convincingly won the Year 6 class relay - a great effort by our team of swimmers: the four above names, Fischer Davis and Kate Baddeley.

Library time

Room 15 has their Library time on Tuesdays. We have time for book issuing and returning as well as research on Inquiry topics. Each week we will have new librarians. Here are some of our class at work!
