Congratulations:

Moana was one of 6 amazing girls from our school who trialled for the Waitakere netball representative teams.  Wow, what an achievement, well done on your selection into a West Auckland representative team.

Well done to MAURIA TE PONO – Rm 8, who won $500 with their Garden design entry for our school Garden competition.  What a great team effort, we have lots of plans on how we would like to use the prize, one idea being that we would donate something to the school to share what we have been given.
