Hākinakina celebrated at assembly!

Hākinakina celebrated at assembly!

Assembly this week has been all about hākinakina (sports) and poutama (achievement).

Term 4 has had a spotlighted focus on poutama value and the ākonga at TCAS have delivered just that. We have had achievement in the last two weeks by way of Jethro Melville playing cricket for South Otago High School, First XI.  On the previous Saturday, Jethro opened the batting in Balclutha and scored 201 runs, not out, completely by himself. This is a new record for South Otago High School, congratulations Jethro! 

Celebrating TCAS values, Casey Catherwood earned her Achievement badge, ka pai te mahi! A huge stack of TCAS cards were awarded for week 5 and 6 and Flynn Lietze was the draw winner who received a $10 Four Square voucher. Riley Nish received his also from Week 3.

Quadrathon success and achievement were celebrated and the following teams were called up that contributed to TCAS taking out three 1st placings and two 3rd placings:
