Success at Inter-Regional Cross Country

She came 1st for her Canterbury team with the team placing second.   Lucy Vance achieved 3rd overall in the Y6 Girls' competition. She came 2nd for her Canterbury team with the team placing first.   Jasmine Hooker came 13th overall in the Y5 Girls' run, and Finella Guttmann came 15th in the Y6 Girls' competition.   Lucy and Nicole then ran in the Canterbury team in the inter-regional relay finishing second behind Wellington.    In the overall results for the Phil Costley Shield, Canterbury were again beaten into second place by a very strong Wellington team.   Congratulations to all the girls for their fantastic efforts. 

Happy Gardening in Pre-School!


Summer is around the corner and over the last few weeks the Pre-School children have been preparing the vegetable garden.   Pre-School has had plenty of New World Little Garden seedlings donated to them by families and friends of the school. These have been carefully tended by the children and some have already been planted into our garden box.   Yesterday, Mr Aaron and Miss Libby took a group of children to Bunnings at Tower Junction to purchase some new plants.  Bunnings gave us a lesson in planting parsley and lettuces.  The children had to wear masks when using the potting mix, to ensure they didn't breathe in anything unwanted.      After they had planted and decorated their pots we were able to walk around the garden centre and pick some new plants.  Rhubarb, sweet peas and daisies were chosen to help brighten up our Pre-School.Once back at Pre-School they were carefully planted into our garden and given a very generous watering.    We will keep you posted on their growth.

Sound of Music Stars Return to The Girls' School


Maddie and Eloise returned to the Girls' School this week and featured at our Leaders Assembly. The girls shared their special journey with us and spoke about life on tour, being on the stage, prop logistics and the highs and lows of stardom! 

The girls answered questions and Eloise gave advice for anyone thinking of following in their footsteps. We were treated to the girls singing 'The Hills are Alive... with the Sound of Music' 

Well done girls, we are so proud of you.
