KIA ORA TATOU, NGA MIHI NUI Nice to see the sun at the end of last week. With daffodils already becoming plentiful and some pink blossom appearing, not to mention the wattle with its show of yellow, spring must not be far away. ‘Tis the season for running and we had a team of eight braving some quite wet conditions on the Wither Hills last week. The whole school continues to stretch its legs using both the Inglis/Lawrence St circuit as well as the Motu Weka Walkway. The run is usually done at 12:30 before the children sit down to lunch. We have some great runners but the real test will come when we run against the other Pelorus children. This interschool event is being run in Canvastown on Friday 25 Aug. A special flyer will come with finer detail and seeking assistance with transporting students to and from the event. On 15 Aug a special invitation should have arrived home via your child’s Boomerang Book relating to the Keeping Ourselves Safe unit being covered in a few weeks. There is an RSVP relating to the information evening on 31 Aug. Please complete and return. This safety unit is run in conjunction with the Police and Josh Reidie, the newly appointed School Community Officer, will be working with class teachers across all classes. For more background info, Google Keeping Ourselves Safe and various links will guide you further. The Combined Marlborough Schools’ Music Festival is on the horizon and thirty of our students are continuing to learn the melodies, lyrics and moves as the calendar ticks over. There is a rehearsal at the Renwick Community Hall on Wed 23 August. Transport is provided via the festival committee. Whilst an ambitious event, the result is always something very special. When tickets become available do not delay. The group performance will be held in the ASB Theatre Wed 27 Sep. Last Wednesday four Kenepuru students took the school’s suggestions about making our local roads safer. Having had a look at a hall full of notices desks, maps and adults they managed to take two of the civil engineers for a walk along the usual walk to and from school. It became quite obvious just what the issues are and so reinforced the submissions in great fashion. Time will tell. Thanks Ruby-May, Manawa, Alex and Courtney. A job well done.

Exploring, sound, noise and music continues in many forms and ideas for instruments are starting to take shape. Garage Band activity is humming along. Congratulations to all those who were recognised recently with an award. These do not come to those who give up. Integrity is the Kiwi Can theme this term and having integrity, even when no one is watching, remains for many, a real challenge. Wishing all a great fortnight as we edge closer to the promise of summer. Be safe. Nga mihi

This is but a very small selection of poetry from our seniors in recent days. Each has produced a folio of poetry in different forms and also investigated the creativity of other authors. Congratulations to both students and Mrs Wearing. The worth of taking a risk, being creative and seeing the project through to its end is very evident.

MARLBOROUGH CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPS Organised by Fairhall School on the lower slopes of the Wither Hills, this event took place last Wednesday on a day that can only be described as wet. Havelock School took eight students who entered in various age group races. Local media has already highlighted the event online and in hardcopy across the region. Tane Ward Y5 Boys achieved 27th position; Hannah Roborgh and Skye Gatjens in the Y5 Girls division achieved 25th and 33rd respectively; Olivia Johnson Y6 Girls ran in Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

26th place; Eva Probert Y7 Girls came in 15th; Taylor Clarke, Gareth Foote and George Robbins ran as a team coming in 21st, 22nd and 23rd respectively.

Top: George taking on his nearest rival. Above: Tane finishing strongly.

Above: Olivia showing true grit after dealing with the slippery conditions. Right: Eva about to finish in our best placed position and thankful it was only 3km and a small hill.

Thank you to Selena for offering to be our adult helper on the day. Running was one thing, but standing around trying to remain dry and warm had its own challenges. Thanks also to those who came along to support our students. A great event. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861
