Korimako Basketball Success

Last week we had two teams compete at the East Zone Basketball Competition. They were brilliant. The boys team won all three of their games comfortably to win through to the Canterbury Competition. For the girls it was much tougher but they made it to the qualifying game and won by 2 points so they also qualified for the Canterbury Competition.

Well done guys!

We also have a new hoop installed outside the hub, we are just waiting for nicer weather so that we can use it!!

Korimako Legends

Congratulations to these 8 students who were awarded certificates by Mrs Culley today for their outstanding work in the hub. You guys work so hard and deserve it!

EPro8 Challenge

Our two EPro8 teams competed with great success yesterday at Kaiapoi North School. They were up against 10 other teams to solve engineering based problems. They showed wonderful collaboration skills and excellent focus. The Skyscrapers came in 2nd place and the Civil Engineers came 4th. Both teams have qualified for the Semi Finals.

Cross Country

We had a beautiful afternoon for our Cross Country last week. The Korimako students ran two laps of the course and showed true grit and determination to finish. Well done to those students who qualified for Zones!

Year 6 Cycle Safety

Our Year 6 students had a great time learning about how to safely ride their bikes around town. They worked with the Christchurch City Council educators to learn about road rules and safe biking.

Friday Afternoon Charades

Korimako is very lucky to have Miss Stewart, a student teacher in the Hub for 5 weeks. On Friday she organised a charades competition. She taught the students a few basic actions that would help them. Students then raced others through a list of movies until they reached the end.

Lunchtime Sport with Nate

We are lucky to have Nate come in to take groups for extra lunchtime sport. This week it was the turn for some Year 6 boys. They had a blast playing football and basketball in the gym.
