We all smiled with delight when Bridgette went up to receive her ICAS English certificate. She gained distinction which is a remarkable achievement. Congratulations Bridgette!

There was a glorious festival of music in the school hall this afternoon. The programme included 16 performing acts ranging from dance, instrumental and singing. There were four excellent judges including Trent Renata and Liam Coltman from the Highlanders. If you look carefully you can see our very own Bridgette and her fellow performer Meg.

Reuben brought in a magnificent penguin shelter that he had made over the weekend. It was just the right size for our Room 9 Little Blue Penguin and the straw inside made it very comfortable indeed. Well done Reuben!

We had watched the weather with great concern, especially as it was snowing the day before. But when the day arrived, the weather was perfect. The muesli bars, biscuits and sandwiches were ready on the tables next to the drink bottle table and away ran the Room 9 and 10 children. What perseverance and determination was seen as the children completed circuit after circuit. It was hard work, in fact very hard work, but everyone felt so proud afterwards. Hurray for the Middle Syndicate!
We are hoping to raise $200 for the Little Blue Penguins at Brighton Beach and this money will be used to buy native plants to help camouflage the nesting boxes. Every day more money is arriving. It is very exciting!

The children who are making muesli bars or biscuits had another session tasting all the extra ingredients that they could add to their baking. Each baking group tasted a number of ingredients and then they had to make a group decision. There was a lot of conversation!
