Top Team

Year 5 and 6 students took part in a great afternoon competing against teams from St Mary's and Hokitika Primary School.  It was great to see such good teamwork and co-operation happening to solve puzzles and complete challenges.

Thanks to the BOT for providing our new team tops for out of school events such as these.

Upcoming Summer Fun

Imagine running a three legged race up a creek with mum. Can you handle scrambling over New Zealand's longest inflatable obstacle course? What about dad having to complete the hula hoop challenge and avoid having to go to bouncy castle jail?
This summer, New Zealand will have a brand-new series of family focused events -XRACE. It's coming to Greymouth on January 16th. 

Let us know if your family are going to enter.  For every 10 kids from our school participating we will receive $500 of sport equipment. Click the link below for more information.

Perfect Pet Day

Thank goodness the rain decided to have a break today!  What a great day to spend outside.  A super HUGE thanks to all the people who helped organise, run and judge on pet day.
The kids did a fantastic job on their projects and on the day.  Well done to Portia and Korie who won the top prizes.

Information Book

We are currently reviewing and updating the school's information book which is given to new families when they are enrolling at our school.
It would be great to hear from any of the newer parents about what was useful and what was missing.

If you have any suggestions on information we need to add to help new families understand our school please let us know.
