The senior syndicate recently had their annual speech competition. Well done to all students who participated and especially to those class finalists who went on to the syndicate finals. A special congratulations to Gabe, the overall winner and Charlie who was the runner up. They went onto represent the school at the local inter-school speech competition.
Loud Shirt Day:
Last day of term was a loud shirt day. This was organised by Ruth to support The Hearing House and the Southern Cochlear Implant Paediatric Programme, two charities dedicated to enabling deaf children with cochlear implant or hearing aids to listen and speak like their hearing peers. Neither charity charges deaf children or their families for their services.
On Tuesday the 22nd of August the middle syndicate sent 3 teams to the Nelson Hockey Tournament.
Everybody had lots of fun with some wins, some loses and plenty of teamwork!
Well done to all the students for their great sporting attitudes.
Yr 5/6 Hockey Tournament
On Thursday 24 August, 28 yr 5/6 CTS kids took their fantastic attitudes to Saxton turf and played in the Primary Hockey Tournament. For some kids this was the first time they had ever played. Others were defending the title they had won as Yr ¾’s Lots of fun and fairplay was had by all. The boys above had a fantastic tournament. In 7 games they scored 28 goals and only let 1 past! They shared the glory around and came home as the 2017 Primary Hockey Champions. Fantastic team effort.
Last week we had a great day making masks from around the world to fit in with the upcoming Nelson Mask Parade. We alternated between mask making and learning about the culture of the country the masks came from. It was a GREAT FUN DAY and superbly organised!!!!!
