On Saturday 6th May the Year 5 and 6 Netball teams (Kaurilands Stars, Wildcats, Pulse, Stormers and Steel) took the court for the first time this year.  It was great seeing the girls have fun, working as a team and representing our school well.  The sun came out for the day which made it even better.  A big thank you to the amazing coaches who are the driving force behind these teams.  It is going to be a great netball season - I look forward to seeing the skill develop over the year.

Meet Jack the Plecostomus

by The Office

Jack is our cool new fish who joined us in the holidays - he is a Plecostomus - a sucker fish - great for cleaning our tank! Jack was donated by Zach - Rm 3, thanks to Ross (dad) for bringing him in.  He is rather large in comparison to our other little tiddlers but they are all enjoying sharing the fish tank.  Have a look next time you are in the foyer.
