Lawn Bowls Champs


Congratulations to the Awatapu Lawn Bowls team consisting of Olivia Howe, Jesse Landes-Downes and James Williams who competed in the Term 1 Northern Bowling Club interschool competition.  The team won all of their matches and improved their skills hugely. 

Sailing Success

Well done to Matida Fyles who came 2nd in the BIC class at the Wanganui Sailing Regatta recently. This is a great achievement, especially considering this is not the usual class of boat she sails in and had only sailed it for two days! She competed against 20 boats initially before qualifying for the Gold Fleet (top 6 sailors). Due to her success she has been asked to attend the open BIC Regatta in Wellington that includes a training session with Olympic Sailor Russell Coutts.

Academic Assembly

During our full school assembly on Friday 3 March, a large number of students were awarded Academic Badges in recognition of their outstanding NCEA success in 2016. It was great to see so many students receiving Merit and Excellence endorsements - in fact, this year we saw an increase in the number of students receiving endorsements across all year levels! This is a fantastic achievement and is a testament to the hard work ethic of both our students and teaching staff - well done!

Congratulations to the following students who achieved overall Merit or Excellence endorsements:
