We have had a number of teams competing in South Island Secondary Schools Tournaments and there have been some great results coming though. We will do a full report on these next week once all tournaments are complete.
A group of Year 7 and Year 8 students traveled to Christchurch last weekend to compete in the Tournament of the Minds competition. They performed very well and I am sure this will become a regular event.
Good luck to the girls who are performing at the Otago Secondary Schools’ Music Festival on Monday 11th September. This is always a great event. The evening performance starts at 6.30pm at the Dunedin Town Hall.
On Thursday 14th September our Kapa Haka group will be performing at Polyfest. St Hilda’s will be performing at 6.30pm.
The weather seems to have improved and we are delighted that we are able to go ahead with the Year 11 Dance tonight.
To enhance your safety, that of your partners, the supervising staff and the parents doing pick ups we are changing the start/finish times of the evening.
The new start time is 6.30pm with last entries by 7pm, except in exceptional circumstances.
The new finish time is 9.30pm. This will ensure everyone gets home at a much more resonable time considering the predicted night temperatures, the continuing poor weather and the difficulty of the driving conditions.
We want to acknowledge and thank all those parents who made generous offers to assist with transport if required. Your assistance as we worked to find a solution to the weather challenges was greatly appreciated.
