What's Going On
Thirty seven Year 12 Biology students recently went to Goat Island Marine reserve for three days to develop their understanding of marine ecology and biology. Bobbing in the water in front of Goat Island is Holly Long-Cuff, Alice Madsen and Nicole Kerr.
Over two weeks, all the Year 8 students have been away at Maratoto Valley Camp. The camp combined competitive and co-perative activities with learning around the term's focus of "change" where students compared water and forest ecosystems as they develop over time.
Congratulations to Elliot Thompson (11R) who placed second in the Traditional Archery Competition at the recent Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament in Wellington.
