A glimpse at Waitahuna School

A glimpse at some of the favourite things we have been doing this week at Waitahuna school: Adventures in the trees creating huts and acting out scenes from the Moana movie. This afternoon as the rain fell we had a lot of children reading the Footrot Flats classics by Murray Ball. Good clean country fun at Waitahuna School.

Smalls Schools Athletics

Waitahuna School has had a very busy start to the year. 
As well as reading, writing and maths, we have been fitting in daily swimming, athletics, rugby coaching with Lee Allan from Otago Rugby and a visit from Greer our Sports Activator.
Today we got to compete at the Small Schools Athletics in Balclutha. 
The maroon t-shirts may have been small in number but they shone in many events including sprints, high-jump and discus. This included a sprints photo finish with our three 5 year old girls.
Thanks to the parents for the great support they gave to the pupils and the teachers.
Next event LAS Athletics on Friday.

First Day of school 2017

We were greeted this morning by the children keen and ready to learn. 
After a great first day settling into new routines the children got to take a dip in the school pool. 
A huge thanks to the parents and wider community for the pool upgrade. The children appreciate all your efforts.
