A group of wonderful young people were showing our South value of Koha today by making masks for any student who would like one. The response was overwhelming and so this group will continue at lunchtimes until everyone who wants a mask can collect one.
40 Hour Famine Achievements
This year South has had a really successful 40-hour famine. We raised $4709 which is $2709 more than our goal! Katie from World Vision talked to us in assembly about how we raised enough money for 18 families in Malawi to have 5 goats each. The goats help with food, milk, and give fertilizer. The goat's poo is great for helping crops grow! Also when the goats have babies, the kids (baby goats) are given away to new families. Therefore South will continue to help many families in Malawi by making sure they have food. Well done to everyone who did the famine this year. Amelie and Aly from the Social Awareness Team.
The Performing Arts Department has been busy! This term we continued with our instrumental lesson programme and celebrated NZ Music Month with an outdoor concert with local musicians, including our guitar and drum tutors Matt Stevenson and Tyler Sutherland. We had a guest Dance and Drama teacher trainee from the NZ Graduate School of Education, Mrs Sarah Harrison, teach classes - 'Dancing Through the Decades'. Our special choir and other students have performed in assemblies. We look forward to Term 3 with many more performances and events to come!
