Fantastic job, Surya and Siyala!

A huge congratulations to Siyala and Surya, who raised $251 for the SPCA last Friday. With the help of their mum, Sharmila, they baked a range of delicious cupcakes and sold them after school to raise money for needy animals.
We think they did a fabulous job to find a great way to help those in need, well done guys!

Success at Northern Zone Swimming

On Friday 15 Year 4-6 Amesbury students represented our school at the Northern Zone Swimming Competition. They put their best efforts into their events and represented our school really well; super job guys, we are all proud of you.

A particular well done to the students who placed first or second in their events and now go on to represent Amesbury School at the Inter Zone competition a little later this term:

Year 5 boys relay team (William Van Rij, Oliver Dunbar, Harry Law and Freeman Yu)
Freeman Yu - winner of the Yr 5 25 m freestyle
Gracie Hayward - winner of the 25m backstroke.

A huge thanks to Bex Cook, who led the team on the day and was one of the (very busy!) judges for the events, and our parent team who transported students and managed the team or completed other roles to help run the event: Garth Hayward, Vivian Tse and Kylie Law.

Gracie's Race Review

Gracie worked really hard during our school cross country competition, qualifying her for Northern Zone Cross Country. Here is her exciting review of the NZ race - great job Gracie!

My Race!

I won the race at Amesbury School year 4 girls so I qualified to run at Northern Zone. I felt so nervous when I was at the starting line and when I was about to go!!  My legs go wobbly but I am fine once I start running.

BANG!!!!!!!  The gun has gone off and I am off running.  When I am running I am thinking about where I am going. I am feeling determined as I am near the front of the pack.  I hear people screaming. I can hear my dad shouting, “Go Gracie, go Gracie.”  It helps me run faster and faster.

Once I finish my race I feel tiredness but I am proud of myself for doing well. I really, really love running!!!
