On Thursday, three Year 5-6 teams competed in the Balclutha Primary Schools Netball Tournament. Teams were required to have a minimum of two boys on the court at one time with the aim to involve new players to the game of Netball, but most of all to have fun.  TCAS Blue and TACS White teams played six games, while TCAS Gold played eight games to progress all the way through to the FINAL, playing against St Mary's Milton. There were many positive comments on their return to school, especially how well the boys played, team sportsmanship, not to mention the big smiles on the children’s faces. Thank you to Mrs Maree Parker, Mrs Lisa Given and Mrs Nicky Hartvigsen who helped with managing a team

Today, nine Year 7-8 students accompanied by Tania Barr and Mrs Hartvigsen were excited to have some fun on the netball court at the 7-8 competition.

PE Sports Hoodies

The second round of orders for the PE Sports Hoodies close on 20th August. To date, only one student has shown interest so to be sure that you don’t miss out, get orders in earlier rather than later.  Cost is $53 per hoodie which includes names screen printed on the back.


Ski Trip

Just a reminder to those who are coming on the Ski Trip next Friday and Saturday to get their payment to the office before Wednesday of next week. Those students who are travelling in the school van have had a meeting with Mrs Wilkinson and Miss Currall today and should know what to expect. A letter outlining all the information was sent home with them, this will also be emailed to parents by the end of today.
