We hope you all enjoyed our performances of "Broadway Kids" on Thursday. While it was a major undertaking for pupils and staff, we are all delighted with the result.

25 Aug - Cantamaths

This annual Mathematical problem solving competition changed venue this year, and was held in the CBS Arena. St. Michael's was represented by the following teams:
Year 8: Saskia Klinkenberg, Madeline Kendrew, Freddy Wilson, & Henry Rouch.
Year 7: Taylor Keys, Vincent Kenworthy, Nicholas Stevens, & William Chambers.

After our School missing the 2010 contest because of our Northern Tour, both teams found the competition challenging, but I was extremely proud of the way the teams competed.  On a related note, it was good to see some past St. Michael's pupils scattered among the Year 9 and 10 competitions.

Dear Kakaphaka Parents

Thank you very much to our Kapahaka parents for ensuring your children were dropped off and picked up from the Chateau on the Park last night.

Their powhiri was well received by all.  Archbishop David Moxon, on behalf of all the Conference guests, thanked our Kapahaka.

Thanks to Maaka and Ms Mahoney.  We can all be proud of our School's Kapahaka group.
