I don't believe how quickly this term is racing by!!. We have been doing some fantastic things here on The Terrace, so many in fact it's hard to keep track! Her is a run down of a few.
Chess: Recently four of our boys, Charlie, Mikey, Dallas and Troy, represented CTS at a national chess tournament in Hamilton. Other schools had three or four teams entered to our one. So we were very proud of our boys 13th place. Mikey and Dallas won four individual games. The boys all worked well as a team. A big thanks to the parents who assisted the team.
We recently had two visitors to our school to take us through some environmental science that we could apply to an art form.
A marine biologist explained to us about the different types of coral we have in our waters, both deep and shallow. An artist then showed us how to make coral using rope. These will be added to a local sculpture she is creating that will be exhibited in 2018 here in Nelson. Here are some of our creations.
Room Seven hosted a great musical based assembly recently. Well done to all those budding musicians in the band, the great singers in the choir and to all the children in R7 for their musical talent. It was very entertaining.
Athletics day has come and gone for the middles and seniors. Great work everyone. Participation was outstanding and congratulations to those who will go into Inter-school Athletics Day. Thanks to Wendy for her organisation and to all our helpers.
A great Gym display by our very successful gym team was put on today. Some very talented gymnasts went through their paces in front of the school and parents. Well done Guys and Gals. Big thanks to Dene and Glenys for all their coaching and time.
