Pirongia and Peachgrove rule

Today's computer tech classes were all good, but Pirongia Yr 8s were the best behaved, quietly settling and getting on with their work.

At lunchtime I was on the field with Mr Cocks dishing out gold cards for good behaviour when I noticed how lovely the native gardens were looking around the perimeter of the field. Well done Peachgrove for looking after your amazing native garden! I bet there are lots of native birds visiting to eat berries and nectar from flowers.

The Good Guys did it again!

Hooray for the mighty All Blacks who once again retained the Bledisloe cup with a great victory over the sniveling Aussies at Eden Park last night.
Well done lads!

Ritchie McCaw and Brad Thorn are two absolute legends of All Blacks rugby.
