WEET-BIX TRY-ATHLON Most of the school’s team assembled at left following what was for about half of them, just enough to whet their appetite for next year. Distances, transitions and novelty was well balanced across the different year groups and as usual, the event was superbly organised. With over 1700 competitors, the seagulls at Tahuna’s sports park had to move over as traffic was stilled and the supporting crowd of thousands got bikes, gear and children ready for the first cohort hitting the beach at 09:00. Perhaps the last real summer’s day was spent as it should, being active in the outdoors. The photos give some idea of the complexity and numbers involved. Thanks to all those parents who made it happen for their kids – an early start, the entry fee, the training, the travel, the support and the extras on the day. In 2017 we hope to have about twenty taking part. Well done Sanitarium, Sport Tasman and the myriad corporates and volunteers groups that make this a truly fantastic and iconic event for Kiwi Kids.

RETIREMENT COMMISSIONER - PUBLIC EVENT IN BLENHEIM - 31 MARCH The Commission for Financial capability is holding a free public seminar in Blenheim on Thursday 31 March at the St Marys Parish Centre, 61 Maxwell Road starting at 10:30am (tea at 10am). The seminar will be of interest to anyone thinking of living in a retirement village (and their support people, family).

Tea and light refreshments will be provided before the event for registered attendees. Registration is easy but early registration is recommended as the 100 seats tend to fill quickly.

Tickets are only $25, so we suggest you buy yours early to avoid missing out on a night of dancing, fun and of course, supper. There will be a prize for the best hat worn in the evening. Tickets are now on sale at “Eyes on Nature”, 61 Main Road, Havelock. The evening is a BYO affair. This event is a fundraiser for Havelock Cactus (which will be run in Term 2) and Havelock Lions like to see that every participant at the course gets a nourishing breakfast before they leave for school over the six weeks that Cactus runs. Money raised will also assist in meeting the cost of the instructors.

Did you know? Frequently ‘junk’ food & drinks which are high in sugar are used to reward children for good behaviour, school achievement and sporting performance. Why not try a non-food/drink alternative next time such as reading a favourite book; stickers, bubble mixture; have a friend around; a later bedtime; play a game or go for a bike-ride together? This will help establish lifetime healthy habits and their teeth will thank you too!

FRIENDS ART SCHEME After Easter Jon Lawrence (http://www.ceamsuk.com) will be spending three days in the school working primarily with Yrs 3 – 5 students and likewise in Linkwater. He will be bringing art works from pupils in some Norfolk schools with a view to forging some links between children from the other side of the world and Pelorus children. Jon will be taking back work from local pupils and during Term 3 Mr B will visit these schools and introduce some NZ music to them by way of exchange. Hopefully these connections will evolve over time and provide students in both hemispheres with new perspectives and understandings about their world. Paperwork seeking authority to potentially use photos of the students will be coming home soon. Further background to this initiative may be found here www.havelock.school.nz/images/documents/Background_FAS.pdf PELORUS CLUSTER TOP TEAM EVENT This took place at Rai Valley Area School on Monday 14 March. Teamwork and leadership were the words for the day. Although the twelve activities were only minutes long they offered challenges that required strategy, communication and tenacity, especially when the bucket for filling the tank has holes or the tank itself needs multiple fingers to plug the holes – the more water, the more fingers required. ASB and Sport Tasman had the day well sorted and the volunteer parents from all schools kept things going smoothly allowing the dynamics of mixed groups from Y1-8 to work through the issues. Children certainly needed their togs for a number of challenges but given the amount of liquid soap, probably didn’t need a wash at the end of the day. Rai turned on a spectacular day and it

kicked off last week in a very positive way. Behaviour of students from across our cluster was exemplary. Congratulations to all and of course thanks to the many parents who moved students to and from Rai. Tino pai. Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

MARLBOROUGH SCHOOLS’ SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS On Friday 11 March a trio of students comprising Kimberley, Ari and Tayla left Havelock at 9am to participate in the Marlborough Schools’ Swimming Champs held at the Stadium 2000 Complex. Years 5 & 6 ~ Kimberley had her races first and achieved a fourth in freestyle. Well done Kimberley! Sadly her goggles came off when she dived in for breaststroke so had to complete the race with no goggles! Good work Kimberley because you still came fifth. Luckily her goggles didn’t come off in backstroke and she came fourth again. A fantastic morning Kimberley, well done! Years 7 & 8 ~ After a lunch break it was time for Tayla and Ari’s races. First was freestyle. Tayla had bad luck in this race because her goggles came off when she dived in. Unfortunately, Tayla came last in that race. Next up was Ari’s freestyle race. She was lucky because her goggles didn’t come off. Ari came 4th. Next was breaststroke and Ari’s heat was first this time. Ari tried really hard and came an amazing 4th again. Tayla had bad luck again because her goggles came off when she dived in and guess what, Tayla came last again! Oh well at least she tried really hard! Lucky last was the backstroke event. Tayla and Ari were in the same heat this time swimming in lanes 5 and 6. Ari was on a lucky streak because she came 5th but Tayla was not placed. Well done girls for giving it a go and trying really hard! Finals ~ Ari was the only Havelock kid that made it into the freestyle and backstroke finals. Well done Ari! Ari came 7th in backstroke and 8th in freestyle! The event was run this year by the Blenheim Swimming Club so it was fairly serious stuff. Ka pai!

TRILLIAN VARIETY BASH Given the media coverage and general “noise” this event creates, you will be aware the bash cruised through the township last Tuesday but not before calling in to the school and populating its twenty-five assorted vehicles askance on the top field. Before joining the mayhem on the field however, Super Hubert the travelling magician, had been bamboozling students with his quirky magic tricks from squeezing cards to make them smaller, frightening a black rabbit and explaining what MT meant. Students each received a bag of goodies and staff too received a bag for the coffee table. The day was suitably hi-jacked and the sugar lobby would not have been best pleased but it was a blast and coming after a top day at Rai competing for Top Team, a number of pupils reflected that it was the best day ever. The day was revised and learning got underway again eventually. Don’t forget donations can be made to this children’s charity online by clicking on to this link (GOTO web version) donate/variety Variety helps New Zealand’s sick disabled and disadvantaged children reach their full potential raising and distributing funds for children in need of basic necessities, vital medical equipment, life changing mobility needs and essential learning opportunities.

The queues started forming early and didn’t really fade away until just after 3pm when supplies were running low and then dried up altogether. A fantastic result thanks to all those who put their hands up to help prior to and on the day. Rachel Roborgh and Asha Mckay coordinated the operation this year and based on previous experience, made it the great success it was. The stall won again as an added bonus. Thanks to all who worked behind the blue walls, some for the whole day and also the seniors who put themselves second.
