Waitahuna Goldrush 150th Celebrations

Waitahuna School pupils were centre stage on Saturday as they entertained the huge crowd at Waitahuna Gully. Their fame did not end there as they were invited by Mayor Brian Cadogan to unveil the plaque commemorating 150 years since the discovery of gold in the gully. Well done to all the pupils who made their Teachers and Parents very proud.

Gardening at Waitahuna

We have an exciting new learning opportunity at Waitahuna School.  If you would like to find out more about it check out the 'tab' above that says 'OUR GARDEN'.

Winners at Waitahuna

We have had our own competition running during the Rugby World Cup.  Miss Goss took it in hand to organise a 'Kicking Competition' to see who could kick over the goal post.  All the pupils were encouraged to enter and then through a process of elimination the kicking skills began to show through.  This week we were proud to award the following prizes.
Waitahuna Rugby World Cup ~ Kicker of the Year 2011 = Jake Lyders
Runner-Up = Olly Bugden
Highly Commended = Bradley Benington, Josh Allen & Jack Murray

During the World Cup we held a competition to see who could guess the Winners of the RWC. Today we were proud to award
Taylor 1st prize for choosing NZ to win, France 2nd and Australia 3rd.
Danielle was 2nd choosing NZ 1st and France 2nd. Well Done
