Kiwisport Filming

Today St Clair School Year 5 and 6 students and St Bernadettes students played a cricket match that was filmed by Kiwi Sport so it could be on Channel 4 TV. It will be shown on the 2nd of April.
The children showed their skills of bowling, fielding, catching and batting. It was a very close score 43/45. Both teams were representing their schools and they all enjoyed playing and being filmed.
Manawa was St Clairs Captian and Tim was St Bernadetts. They did well as they had no practices as a team before the match. Congratulations to St Bernadettes who won the match. St Clair won a touch rugby ball for hosting the event.
Reporters Payge, Thamilla and Samantha

Beach Education

On Monday room 8 and room 17 went to the beach ED. The lifeguards put on a video for keeping our selves safe at the beach. The man told you what rips and currents look like. He told us 10 RULES like don’t swim when tired or cold, never swim alone, swim between the flags, and listen to the lifeguard’s advice as they know about the surf.
About three minutes after that we had morning tea and a play at the St Clair Park.
After 10 minutes we went back inside and we learnt about slip, slop, slap, wrap, slurp, slide then it was lunch time and it was the same as morning tea.
But after lunch we were able to look at the rips and safe places to swim before warming up and going into the water. Our fun swim was soon over and we were heading back to school.

Southen sinfonia

It’s Tuesday the 8th of December. Kids are pouring into the hall, whispering excitedly.
Mrs Caldwell introduces us to the Southern Sinfonia, saying what an honour it is to have them with us.
One of the members introduces us and starts us off with a tune from Pirates of the Caribbean™. Then we get introduced to the sections of the orchestra and the players who have come to visit us today.
As the concert proceeds we listens to stories, explanations, and tunes.
They finished with Beethoven’s symphony number nine. We clap and cheer wildly.
In conclusion it was a fantastic performance.

Otago Champs

The freezing cold air rushed over our faces.
Everybody was squished in the seats trying to keep warm.
The speaker blabbed on as the day
Finally started for us.
Sprints, long jump, relays, high jump
Last of all 800 metres.
The under 12 girls were up first for relays. We came second in the first heat.
We got into the semi finals. In the semi finals we came 4th but sadly, we didn’t get in to the finals. We were happy at where we got though because we had been versing people older then us. The day pressed on with more and events were being called. Finally the day ended. But not for some people because we still had to do the 800 metres.

Co-operative sports day

“Let the games begin” shouted Mrs Wood into the breeze of the cold wind. Kids were shouting the yelling with joy as they walked to their first activity. Already you could see teamwork everywhere with the seniors leading and helping out the juniors. You could see this was going to be a fabulous day!
The cheering, laughing and support of all team-mates went through all the activities. All sorts of different skills were being used. Long jump, 4 square, egg and spoon race – with small potatoes, three legged race, obstacle course and rob the nest were some of the many activities we did.
By the end of the day everyone was very tired as we walked into the hall to hear the final results. We were all dying to hear the results when the teacher handed us all our participation certificates. The Mrs Wood told us the winners were… team 1. Everyone was happy as they cheered them on. It was the end of a wonderful day.
