Small Schools Athletics 2016




Yesterday we attended the Small Schools Athletics at Balclutha. The children enjoyed meeting up with their friends from the other small-schools and competing in the variety of track and field events. A huge thank you to the parents who offered transport and also helped us to run our events.

LAS Athletic Sports 2015

Lawrence Area School turned on some fantastic weather for their annual Athletics Sports. After a deluge of rain overnight the grounds were dust-free and the day was mild,over-cast and pleasant. 

The children all competed strongly in their events with some taking away personal best heights in high-jump.

The day finished with the inter-house and Waitahuna School relay.  We were proud to have all our children in the relay this year, although sadly one athlete missed her run due to a visit to Dunedin hospital.  A huge thanks to Caine Ritchie, Liam and Taylor Homer for helping bolster our numbers in the relay, this brought the Homers in the team to six.  

(Most photos of the event feature the Under 7's and the relay as the photographer was supporting this group. The rain was also falling through the relay)  - Click on the image below to view the photos:

Thanks Primepac


Waitahuna School would like to say a huge "Thank you" to Primepac for the rugby balls we were fortunate to win in the prize-draw. The kids are enjoying practising their skills at lunch and during PE lessons. Also a huge thanks to Jenna who nominated our great wee school.
