The Year 7 and 8 Class Coordinators have organised an end of year evening function for Year 7 and 8 parents at Non Solo Pizza, Parnell. Please put Thursday 3 November in your diaries and get the babysitter organised as we would love to see you at NSP.
We are celebrating a great success at the Mathex Quiz this year. Our Year 7 team, Charlotte Wen, Tingmeng Wang, Maria Gong, Brena Merz and Heidi Erhard (Reserve) won the Year 7 competition. Not only did they get a perfect score of 100, but they solved all 20 problems in 23 minutes, whilst no other school was able to answer all 20 questions in the 30 minute timeframe allowed. We have an impressive cup to display in the Middle School, and the girls won a selection of great prizes including g-shock watches, scientific calculators and other educational items. Well done to these girls.
On Sunday I went out to the Pukekohe Raceway and saw our juniors cycling in the Time Trial. They are a very cohesive team and they really did understand the concept of communicating as they took turns in the lead on what is a very challenging circuit. Their level of expertise bodes well for cycling in the Middle and Senior School in the next few years.
Our Boarders celebrated their mid-winter Christmas dinner last week, and the theme of the evening was Narnia. The girls enjoyed a lovely dinner of roast turkey, with all the trimmings and Christmas themed petit fours for dessert. They had decorated the tables with a Narnia theme including bowls of Turkish delight. The girls dressed up and some won prizes for their costumes. It was a very merry evening.
