Football Festival
Yesterday we sent 4 teams to the inaugural North Otago Primary Schools Football Festival run by Football Waitaki. It was a mixed team 5 v 5 tournament and the goal was about participation and giving something new a try. The highlights of the day were seeing children who were shy and hesitant at the start of the first game to being fully involved in all aspects of the game by the end of the day and to see each team's players pass the ball to each other which scored in some great goals.  For some of our students, it was the first time they had competed at a North Otago school event and all the children thoroughly enjoyed the day even though rain threatened to postpone it in the morning.  Special thanks to our wonderful coaches, Rory McGeown, Suzy Oakes, Karl Vincent and Lee Woodhouse because without you we would not have been able to enter our teams and our parent drivers for transporting the children to and from school. 

OSCAR @ Fenwick before and after school care program is taking enrollments for Term 2.
We open at 7:20am in the Fenwick School Hall and the afternoon program concludes at 6pm.

Basketball and Miniball
There has been yet another change to the basketball and miniball teams since last week due to not enough coaches.  We now have 1 mixed Yr 6/78 team playing in the intermediate competition on Wednesday nights and two miniball teams playing on Tuesday nights.  Players have been spoken to about these changes.

Score bench rosters - each week a family has to do score bench duty for their team.  A roster will be sorted out in the first week of term 2 and everyone is expected to do their duty otherwise the children's teams miss out on competition points if nobody turns up to do it.  If you cannot do your allocated duty, please arrange with someone else to do it.

Basketball - Cranos Chikowore is the coach for the intermediate team (Cavaliers)
Miniball - Judith Leo and Adele Whiston are the coaches for the boys team (Breakers) and the girls team (Rebels).  Thank you coaches.
