Fantastic show of ability and sportsmanship yesterday at the Northern Cross Country by our Te Anau School tamariki. Out of our 33 athletes 21 came in the top 6 of their respective races. Stand out age groups included the 10 year old girls where we came 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th! Also the 8 year old boys where we came 1st, 2nd 3rd and 6th! We certainly showed the rest of Northern Southland what Te Anau kids are made of! Every one of our tamariki showed outstanding Togetherness, Optimism and Pride!

In the weekend 3 Te Anau School pupils were selected to represent Southland in the 10U Southern teams event in Dunedin! Vienna, Maisie and Harry were part of the 8 strong team that played over two long hot days in Dunedin. There was some outstanding tennis and some admirable sportsmanship from both the boys and girls teams. They all had some exciting individual wins that helped lead Southland 10U team to a victory over both Otago and South Canterbury and a draw with Southern Lakes. The commitment, fortitude and integrity these three displayed over the weekend was something they and Te Anau School are proud of.

We look forward to seeing all our families over the next couple of days during Parent Teacher Interviews. It will be great to catch up with everyone. As you will likely know we have been trying to get all parents signed up to our Hero App or online to Hero. If you are having any trouble with this at all please call in to see me and I will do my best to get you up and running. We have managed to get everyone with an issue all sorted so far! Some of the issues we have solved have included: - The 'wheel of doom'. - The 'blank screen' - The 'I'm not linked to my kids page' - The 'it just won't work' We do hope to get as many people as possible signed up so if you are having trouble please do call in and ask. I will be around the admin area both afternoons/evenings. Thanks, Grant

Next Saturday 27 February is the Te Anau Basin Trail Ride which is being held at Te Anau Downs Station. This is an annual event but is the first time it is being held at this wonderful location. This year our PTA is lucky enough to be one of the groups the trail ride is supporting. This will be a great fundraiser that will directly benefit the tamariki of Te Anau School. To support this event we need to supply 15 people to help out on the day. This will mainly be cooking a BBQ and marshalling on the course. The event is run between 8am and 4pm but our helpers can work in shifts. If you are able to help, flick me an email gexcell@teanau.school.nz call in, give us a phone call or private message on here. Small shifts or large, we would love for you to help. By helping you will directly be making the lives of your children better. Thanks in advance!
