House Fun Afternoon

15 February

Our first house event was the fun afternoon where we competed in house groups around a range of fun relay type games.  These activities are run by our House Leaders so is an awesome way for these leaders to develop their leadership skills. 

Year 3 - 8 Swimming Sports

6  March

Well done to everyone who participated in the Year 3 - 8 Swimming Sports.  These were very successful with all our students being Highfield Learners and displaying motivation and resilience.  It was also great to see the amount of support that the students offered to each other to achieve their best. 

Everyone can feel proud of their efforts.  Thank you to Mrs Cooper and her team of helpers for organising the event which ran like "clock work"

Whanau Hui

27  March

There was a good attendance at the Whanau Hui for our Maori families and performance by our Kapa Haka Group. This was a chance for Highfield School to hear about the aspirations for our Maori students and put those into actions.

A small group have formed a committee to review the suggestions and formulate an action plan.
