JUNIOR CHOIR

The Junior Choir is for Grade 1-2 only. We had three special events this year. For our special Ascension Day Assembly when the whole school came together in our new hall, we sang and introduced the songs:

  • Galileans
  • Why Are You Standing There
  • Looking Up At The Sky?”

 into our school’s Praise Time repertoire.

We undertook a trip to “Good Companions” at Linden Presbyterian Church and performed a program for the “Grannies and Grandpa’s” there. At first the children were a bit shy to speak to the old people after their performance, but soon little conversations happened and warm hugs were exchanged.

The choir also performed the song “Love Changes Everything” for the “NWCS Has Talent” event and our last engagement will be performing for the Grade 1 and 2 annual prize-giving at the end of the year.

NETBALL

Winter was a very successful season. Our fields were ALWAYS full and both tennis courts were put to good use with Netball taking place almost every afternoon

CROSS COUNTRY

Cross Country was a wonderful success this year and 2 of our runners competed for their Northern Cluster’s colours

HOCKEY

This was our first year in a Hockey League. We managed to enter a Girls and Boys junior side as well as a Girls and Boys senior side. It was a wonderful season and all our teams played very well.

EISTEDDFORD:

  • We received a gold medal in the Eisteddfod.
