Sheppard Yr 8s Tour City Architecture
On Wednesday, Sept. 2nd, Sheppard Yr 8s strolled into the CBD to study some of the architecture of the rebuild. We were met by Barry, Mark, and Aaron, experienced project managers in our community, who analysed the blueprints, discussed materials, cost, and performance of the new Spark building and the BNZ building. Students were highly engaged in Q and A and came away with an appreciation for all the factors that go into the building projects that surround us.
Hockey A, B, C and D teams 2020
Hockey was very successful at Christchurch South this year. All teams have had a series of wins and losses, but have shown sportsmanship at every game. The A team was beaten in some very tough games against Heaton gold, once being beaten 19-18. All students were happy to have the opportunity to play, considering it has been a very unusual year.Ayana Cook R4 stated: "Both teams have won a few games and lost a few but overall the teams did very well this season. Very unfortunate that the season was cut short with COVID but with the time we had we all had a good time.Special thanks to our coaches and teaches who helped make sure that we got to hockey and held the practices."Well done to all players.
South's Speech Final.
On Tuesday 19th we held our Speech Finals during our assemblies. The topic was ‘What I Value’ and the audience was treated to thought-provoking speeches on poaching, racism, and equality, accepting and loving ourselves for all we are including our imperfections and for our individuality. Zoe took first place in the Year 7 competition with an entertaining and informative speech about using her imagination and her imaginary unicorn! Sienna won the Year 8 competition with a thought-provoking speech about privilege and about how those who have privilege have an opportunity and a responsibility to use this to support others who do not have as many opportunities. The standard of speeches was extremely high and each one gave the audience something to think about. Our judge, Polly Hutchinson was very impressed with each student and mentioned how difficult it was to choose a winner for each year group. Congratulations to each finalist for making their final and representing their Pod with pride.
