School days end­ing for Year 13s

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING -

The end is near for our se­nior stu­dents, es­pe­cially our Year 13s who head out into the big wide world, after their NCEA ex­am­i­na­tions.!

The fi­nal Achiev­ers’ Assem­bly was a bit­ter­sweet mo­ment of pride, joy and sad­ness as our Year 13s said good­bye to the school and staff who have housed their ed­u­ca­tion for the last five years.

Jor­dyn Lowe and Josh Prince pre­sented their vale­dic­tory speeches, re­flect­ing on their time at DHS, and im­part­ing wise words on their peers, to work hard, achieve and try new things.

Fol­low­ing on from this assem­bly was the an­nual Leavers’ Din­ner. Guest speaker Will Wal­lace was a fa­mil­iar face, hav­ing vis­ited Dan­nevirke High School ear­lier this year, be­ing an old boy of the school. It was won­der­ful to hear him speak of his suc­cesses and en­cour­age our Year 13s to work hard for theirs.

On Tues­day Novem­ber 6, Dan­nevirke Reap, the Toy Li­brary and Dan­nevirke High School worked to­gether to bring to the youngest mem­bers of our com­mu­nity the Let’s Move It ini­tia­tive. There were 56 chil­dren of five years and un­der who en­joyed the ac­tiv­i­ties set up in the DHS gym­na­sium. The chil­dren were able to ex­plore a new en­vi­ron­ment and chal­lenge them­selves to new ex­pe­ri­ences.

It was won­der­ful to see the fun the chil­dren were hav­ing, and even a few adults who showed their skills on the gym­nas­tics equip­ment. There would have been some tired chil­dren in the af­ter­noon, and most likely care­givers, too!

For the re­main­der of the year our DHS ju­niors will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a num­ber of im­por­tant events at school.

There will be a num­ber of days test­ing in some classes, as well as in­ter-house events and ac­tiv­ity week. Year 10 camp week will be here be­fore we know it.
