ANZ Olympic Schools Programme
We have registered as an ANZ  Olympic School which provides us with resources and rewards to inspire our school community.  If you are looking to take out a home or business loan, simply provide the name of our school when speaking with an ANZ representative.  When your loan is drawn down, we will receive credits to spend at the ANZ Awards Centre on items like sporting equipment and computers. To discuss an ANZ home or business loan, visit your local ANZ branch or call a Home Loan Specialist on 0800 269 4663 or a Business Specialist on 0800 269 249.

Pompallier Rugby Tournament
On Sunday we sent 3 rugby teams to the Marist Pompallier Rugby tournament held in Ashburton and competed against teams from Timaru, Ashburton and Christchurch. Even though the results didn't come our way this year, the children showed good sportsmanship and true veritas values to win the Fair Play trophy.  One of our teams only had 10 players in it and they were competing against teams who had 30 players and subs.  The children competed in rugby games, tug of war and sprint competitions and really enjoyed the day.  Many thanks to the coaches and parents who helped with the day.

Sport Practices
As our coaches are all voluntary and give up their time to coach your children, please let them know if your children cannot make a practice or a game. Lately some of our teams have been short of players due to parents not informing coaches that their child cannot make a game.

The new Subway order envelopes have arrived at the office  Remember Subway costs $6.00 and $2.00 extra for a drink.
