Year 6 Cycle Safety
During the final week of Term 1, Christchurch City Council ran the Cycle Safety programme with our Year 6 students. The children learnt the correct hand signals and behaviours when cycling on our busy roads.

Batten Team Caritas Challenge Day
Today the Batten Team participated in a Caritas Challenge Day in order to raise funds for South Sudan. Their challenge was to make shelters similar to those lived in by the South Sudanese people. They also had a small amount of rice for their lunch to re-enact what is eaten by people in this country. They also managed to raise money for Caritas by collecting donations - well done Batten Team!
This week, the Hillary and Batten Teams have been learning how to play Korfball! It is a game which has similarities to netball and basketball where 2 teams of 8 players (4 females and 4 males), try to score goals through a 'bottomless basket'. The children have had so much fun!
