On Friday night (2 July), 30 of our students attended a Japanese festival at IPU. The students had the opportunity to try calligraphy, origami, Japanese bon dancing, karate, Japanese drumming and a variety of different food and drink.
Congratulations to Eliana Brown, Lintang Krohn, El McGregor, and Donovan Smith, placing a close second behind St Peter's at the Reader's Cup competition this week. The event was attended by 12 other schools from Manawatu, Whanganui and Wairarapa.
Our Pasifika Fusion students performed brilliantly at the Regent on Wednesday and Thursday this week. All their hard work was rewarded throughout the two day competition. Selamat (congratulations) to Yeklin Wakur on a well deserved 1st place for her Indigeonous Language speech. The team also finished 3rd in the General Knowledge Quiz. An awesome effort by all involved.
