Last term we had been doing squash on a Thursday with a squash instructor called Kay. She taught us how to bounce the ball on the squash racket, how to dodge quickly with fast feet. She also taught us how to play dog and bone with the reaction ball, it bounces everywhere! Kay is the best!!!
Thank you, Kay, for teaching us squash!!!
Last term the whole middle/senior school were learning all about persuasive, inspirational and informative speeches. Last, Term on Tuesday the 12th of September it was the Stanley Ave School speech finals. Anna Wade went through with her speech about Kiamaniwa horses and Jessica Bray went through with her speech about younger parents are better than older. They did really well and spoke with confidence. The best thing is they both made it through to the Rotary speech finals from.
Jessica Bray got 3rd, Anna Wade got 2nd and Rico Dare got 1st in year 6s. Everyone that went to the speech finals had a good speech and they were all very interesting with awesome facts and lots of humour.
