What lovely late summer weather we are having. Conditions were perfect for our Friday morning Middle Syndicate Sports games and the students had a great time - awesome enthusiasm and effort from the whole team.
(Apologies for the pinky tinge of some the photos - no it wasn't a meteor strike!!)
Middle Syndicate teamwork, co-operation and support for other students.
It was wonderful during the sports to see our students displaying the Pārāwai
School Values, our 'Recipe for Success'; encouraging and supporting the younger students and helping those less able than themselves. Well done you are awesome!
On Wednesday morning Constables Catherine Sell and Brett Otto came to Pārāwai to train our 'Road Patrollers' for 2015. Well done and thank you to the 26 students who have offered to take on this responsible job and keep our students safe as they cross Pārāwai Road and Lowe Avenue. (Photo coming up soon)
Pārāwai Family/Whanau Picnic and meet the Teachers Evening.

Room 12 Art
On Wednesday afternoon we will have our first Art session, so remember not to wear your best clothes. Thank you to those parents who are able to come and help, I have have been trying some ideas at home over the weekend; it's going to be fun!!
Pārāwai School Swimming Sports
On Friday we will take over Centennial Pool for the morning, and I am sure the competition will be fast and furious. Thank you to Maree Jamieson for organising this event and to the parents who are coming to help and support the students. We couldn't do it without you.
Middle Syndicate Water Sports
On Friday morning too, the students in Years 4 - 6, who are not yet able to swim 25m, will be taking part in the Middle Syndicate Water Sports. The students will take part in a range of races; walking, dolphin diving, floating, swimming, kicking with floats - you name it they will be doing it!! So please come prepared with togs, towel, sun hat, polar fleece , drink bottle. Thank you to the Middle Syndicate Teachers for organising this for our less confident swimmers.
