We are very lucky to have Angus from Canterbury Sport in our school for the next few weeks to teach Pohutukawa children some skills to play volleyball. So far our children have learnt to dig, set and spike the ball over the net. Check out some pictures from our first session!

Will she be able to hit it back? 

Rugby World Cup 2015 - Victory!

At the end of last term all the hubs at Beckenham School were given a country to represent. We were challenged to learn about the history, language and culture of that country and present our work to the RWC judges (Sherrilee and Michelle!). Hub 14/15 were given Fiji and although we were kicked out of the tournament very early on, it did not stop us from going all out. We transformed our hub into a Fijian paradise complete with a coconut tree, ocean, ice cream bar and 50 children in their togs lounging on their beach towels reading. Jamie also did an amazing job at playing some relaxing tunes to really set the mood. We all had a fantastic time and to top it all hub 14/15 was voted by the judges the BEST in the senior school. The only thing that can beat that is if the ABs bring the cup home again!
