More Memories from Term 3

Cross Country

On Tuesday 30th August we took a team of determined runners to the Norwest Interschool Cross Country. It was held at Huapai Domain and was a great day for pushing ones limits! 

Well done to the Year 5's: 
Vraj, Jay, Yogeshwer, and Nandan, who ran 2km.
Fantastic effort to the Year 6's: 
Yug, Harsh, and Iggy, who ran 2.5km.
Great job to the Year 7's: 
Maanav and Manan, who ran 3km.

School Speech Competition

Last week on Thursday 8th September we held the annual speech competition.  Such a great evening; so wonderful to see all the students blossom with confidence.  The young orators were so good it made the judges job difficult!

Year 5 and 6 Team:  Tushti and Sai (front)
Nadiya, Krisha, Harsh, Divya, Dana-keli and Ananya (back)

Lastly, here are a few pictures of the grand festival of Krishna's Birth! During the day students got to spend time in the temple, joining in on ecstatic kirtan, soaking up the surcharged atmosphere in the temple and bathing Bal Gopal.  In the evening the festivities continued with students performing in a drama, dance, leading kirtan, as well as a mrdanga presentation.

Just two weeks to go until the holidays and there's still more to look forward to. Sachi and Krisha will compete at the Norwest Interschool Speech Competition this Wednesday 14th September - we wish them luck! A group of boys will enter the Year 7&8 Volleyball Competition on Wednesday the 21st September and lastly I look forward to seeing you all at the Student Led Conferences in the last week of school.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing a few pics from over the term.  It took me a while to get them up - but we got there in the end.
