Pupils at St Ger­ard’s School in Alexan­dra in pe­riod cos­tume to cel­e­brate the school’s 100th birth­day.

Lack of sleep did not de­ter the spirit of those in the Re­lay for Life in Cromwell at the week­end. The Chatto Creek Tav­ern Knit­ting Club team – Grace Robert­son, left, Hi­lary Daugh­try, Kevin Wood, Tracey Wood, Nikki Milne and Ralph Milne – joined 65 teams from as far as Man­iototo and Glenorchy, who walked for 24 hours in sup­port of peo­ple af­fected by can­cer. Or­gan­iser Tammy Jack­man said the event had been great and even at 3am ev­ery­one was up and walk­ing around, hav­ing a good time. The re­lay ran from mid­night on Satur­day to noon on Sun­day and raised more than $130,000 for Can­cer So­ci­ety ser­vices in Cen­tral Otago.
