Broadgreen Exchange - Days 2, 3 and 4

Day 2 - Tuesday morning started with the Broadgreen variety assembly. We were treated to a wonderful range of cultural, singing, music and dance performances from groups of students. The rest of the day was set aside for sport. Netball was played including the A game which was one of the three sports we had chosen as competitive for the trophy (the other two being Girls' Football and Boys' Basketball scheduled to be played on Wednesday). South won the A Netball game convincingly. The results were shared in Touch Rugby and the other Netball games. We lost the social and competitive Volleyball games. The honours were shared in the social Basketball and Ki-O-Rahi. Day 3 - Wednesday morning started early as we needed to prepare for our variety assembly. Every member of the travelling team was involved in the assembly with a massed sasa and finale song. Before those massed items the Broadgreen students and staff were entertained by our kapa haka and pasifika groups, chorale and choir, boys' and girls' hip hop, a trio of talented unicyclists, an Irish and Scottish dance, rock band and a video about South (thanks Emma and the Film Crew). After interval it was straight into competitive sport with Boys' and Girls' Basketball being played in the red hot atmosphere created at Jack Robins Stadium. The boys dominated their game to win and give us a 2-0 lead in this year's trophy sports. The girls narrowly lost a very competitive game. We raced back to school for the Boys' and Girls' Football (the boys losing 4-2 and the girls completing a clean sweep of the trophy games winning 4-0). The Boy's 7s Rugby saw South well beaten 10 tries to 2. The girl's Rugby game (10 a-side) was keenly anticipated with many of the girls playing their first ever game of Rugby.  Broadgreen took the honours 12 tries to 7 with their experience showing through. After lunch the South students headed to Richmond pool for a swim. Later in the evening everyone got together again for the "Rubik's Cube" themed disco.   Day 4 - After a photo of South students and their billets we headed to the hall for the debate. South took the affirmative side of the moot "That social media is beneficial for students". In a close tussle the Broadgreen team snuck a win after both teams had made great cases for their sides of the debate. After some shared singing, farewell and thank-you speeches, a few tears and an impromptu South haka we climbed on the buses for the trip home, tired and happy after being part of a wonderful tradition of exchanges between our two schools that has been going for over 45 years.

Alternative Week - Day 2

Rutherford and Shepard started off the day swapping pods. Rutherford made popcorn and experimented with lots of delicious flavours to see what tasted best. They then designed logos and packaging advertising what the product was and what flavours are included. Shepard was doing a scavenger hunt around the school. In the afternoon some of rutherford went over to the Digitech and hard materials room and made little wooden cars to race each other. Shepard played fun throwing, stacking and running games.  By Hunter Jenner 


Well done to all our students who have accepted the 2-fold challenge of Knowledge-a-thon. They are busy learning the answers to the 100 questions in the booklet given out last week, as well as seeking sponsors. We encourage students to use the holiday break to sign up sponsors. We are fund raising to buy more technological equipment to support our students' learning. Some people choose to make a donation instead of a sponsorship per correct answer. Our previous fund raising efforts have made a significant contribution to what we can offer our students and we appreciate all the fine efforts made by our school community. Challenge day is early next term, Friday 28 October and then we will be asking the students to bring in their collected money.
