The weather has been amaz­ing lately. Labour week­end was so sunny and the week that fol­lowed it as well. It has been a great start to term 4, to be able to get to school in this nice weather, whether it be on bikes or walk­ing and then play­ing out­side af­ter school at the parks and beaches etc.

Waihi Ju­nior Touch started up last Wed­nes­day (Oc­to­ber 24). This was a great evening also, with the sun shin­ing on the Waihi rugby club fields, kids from year 3 to year 6 had some good skills go­ing on with the two games played against other lo­cal schools. Year 7/8 started up on Oc­to­ber 31 and year 1/2 will start next Wed­nes­day.

Come on down and sup­port your kids and schools.
