Waitahuna School at the Forsyth Barr Stadium ~ Highlanders vs Bulls

The pupils and parents from Waitahuna School travelled to Dunedin on Saturday to watch the Highlanders vs Bulls rugby game at the Forsyth Barr Stadium.

On the bus Olly predicted the Highlanders would win, because Lawrence teams had had a good day. Jack was a bit more conservative and hoped for a draw. So we were all delighted when the Highlanders pulled off the win. The cheering from Waitahuna may have helped! The ring side seats, the hotdogs and chips, rugby balls and goody bags added to the fun. The Highlander players who took the time to come over and sign faces, rugby balls and clothing added to the memories. Mrs Homer and Ms Johnstone were really impressed with the way our children behaved and really supported their team. Thanks to Mr Alec Benington for the smooth drive.

The children had a great time as you can tell from the expressions on their faces in the photos!

Thanks to Silver Fern Farms for their promotion and Ralph and Leanne Allen who were the lucky suppliers who nominated our school for this promotion.
