This year the 40 Hour Famine Leaders were awarded the inaugural World Vision Auahatanga Most Creative Fundraising Award “for thinking outside the box to rewrite the rules.”
World Vision said that the awardees showed “a spirit of creativity and courage.” This is a great honour for these girls and I commend them for their efforts!
With the approach of the holidays and hopefully some beautiful summer weather to lure us all outside, the experts from ‘Hey Sigmund’ challenge us all to go screen free for a week. Click here for their advice about what this can do for family life.
We are pleased to welcome Mrs Clare Challis, Mrs Kate Cotter and Mr Craig Paterson as the incoming parent representatives, to join Mr Roger Southby as the community members on the Council. Craig, Kate, and Clare have extensive experience across a wide range of sports in coaching, administration and governance, and we look forward to their input to the sporting life of the school.
A keen and eager group of Year 7-10 St Hilda’s music students went to King’s and Queen’s High Schools to be part of the Itinerant Music Workshop Day for 2019. The day allowed students to gain experience of playing in a concert band or a string ensemble setting where they could develop their musical skills and play as a team in their instrument sections.
Everyone had a great day rehearsing in their groups and took on the challenge of learning new music with fantastic results. It was really pleasing to see our students take up the opportunity to participate in the Itinerant Workshop Day.
