LANE COVE TRIP
Well done to the year 11 students who attended the Lane Cove trip last week. As part of their PE program this term our year 11 students are learning about the importance of safety in the outdoors. Last Wednesday 7 of our year 11 students participated in an overnight trip to the Lane Cove Hut in Totara North. Well done to you all for successfully completing the 2 hour trek. I would like to extend a huge thank you to Rhema Norman who accompanied us to help out with our trip and supervision. I would also like to thank Paul and Sally WiHongi for transporting us to and from Totara North. What an awesome experience had by all.
Thank you to the Former Houston Rockets Basketball coaches Eanna and Leah who offered up their time to come in and work with our basketball teams last week. The teams thoroughly enjoyed themselves!!
