Look what we grew!

We have had bumper crops of apples in the school garden this year. The garden club students have cooked and frozen many jars for us to use later in the year in Food Technology classes. Our black currant crop has also been outstanding, with over 6 kg of fruit frozen for use later.  The tomatoes are being used in relish, the corn in risotto and the green leafy crops will be used in stir fries.  We are very grateful to the families who have joined us to work in the garden on Sunday afternoons, 2-4pm.  Any parent or grandparent is very welcome to come along for even half an hour whenever you can, to lend a hand with the weeding, pruning, and planting. 

Education Outside The Classroom (EOTC) 2020

During weeks four and five of Term 1 all 500+ children had the opportunity to participate in our 2020 EOTC programme. The year 7 students sailed at Lake Rua, experienced river crossing at the Groynes and hiked around Quail Island. The year 8 students went to camp at Orton Bradley park. They walked around the base of Mt Herbert, canoed, built rafts, coasteered, orienteered and wharf jumped at Diamond Harbour. It was great to see a number of students step out of their comfort zone, challenge themselves and try new things. They showed great commitment and definitely embraced the challenge. We have been fortunate that the weather has played its part for most of the activities. A big thank you to all the parents/caregivers that helped out during the two weeks of EOTC. Without your support events like this would not happen. Here are some reflections from the children about their experiences: Showing South values during EOTC … Aim High: I had never sailed before and was nervous about it. Once I gave it a go I realised that it wasn’t as scary as I thought it might be. Commitment:  I promised myself that I would give everything a go. Support: I supported all my classmates when someone found something challenging. Koha: Our class wrote letters to all the parents who helped out with our trips. Integrity: I showed integrity by trying something new and being respectful to the instructors. What I thought about Orton Bradley camp… The most enjoyable thing was …  Coasteering and the food Mr Laing cooked for us. On Tuesday we went to Diamond harbour and took part in a number of activities. I loved jumping into the water at coasteering. It was really fun. Every evening Mr Laing cooked us dinner. My favourite meal was nachos. They were amazing. The best camp I have ever been on!

Duathlon 2020

Our school duathlon was held at Christchurch South Intermediate on Tuesday 18th February. The weather was perfect and with over 500 children competing it was a fantastic event. The Year 7s started us off with the girls' and boys' teams, followed by the girls' individual and lastly the boys' individual. Every student gave it their all and it was pleasing to see the support and encouragement that the children gave to their peers while they were competing. The Year 8s followed the Year 7s and they did not disappoint. They were also very supportive of each other and I feel that South have a great group of children this year. Every student that competed on the day should be proud of their effort and be commended on showing ‘The South Way’. A big thank you to all the helpers and staff on the day. Without you events like this could not happen. Finally, thank you to all those parents/caregivers who came down to support the competitors. It was fantastic to see! Results: Yr 7 Girls1st Rebecca Pratten2nd Zania Roberts3rd Neve Goldsmith Yr 7 Boys1st Harrison Staunton2nd William Sherp3rd Max Denison Yr 8 Girls1st  Sydney Booth2nd Amelia Quinn3rd Hanna North Yr 8 Boys1st Hugo Knowler2nd Harper Ford3rd Lachlan Timlin
