We are reading the book 'Tui Street Tales' by Anne Kayes which is a modern day NZ twist on the classic fairytales we all know and love.

Last week we had a fantastic day at Lovelock Track for the Year3-6 Owairaka athletics day. It was awesomely organised (thanks Mrs Mudgeway) and everyone did a fantastic job in all the events. Events included shot put, discus, high jump, long jump and 100, 200, 400 and 800m track runs.

Everyone put in a great deal of effort and determination and did themselves, and Owairaka, proud.

Special mention to Joyce, Taimalie, Solomon, Leo, Harry, Savannah, VJ and Kingston who took out placings in, sometimes several, events.

Another special mention to Solomon, Savannah, Harry and VJ who competed in the class relay representing Rm23 - and coming first! Awesome stuff.

Good luck to students who will be representing Owairaka School at the Eden/Albert Athletics. Go team!
