Today we had a board games day. It was fun. The students really played well together. Saw some awesome maths skills in a couple of the games too! Charlotte created this trailer with assistance from Natasha to showcase the day. Enjoy the view and please comment :)

 Tomorrow is Wacky Sports Day!

Here is a glimpse of some of the fun had by our year sixes at the rock n' roll dance. They are a great bunch!

Volleyball Champions!

The Parkvale Moriarty volleyball team won their final to come first in the Hastings Y5/6 competition. They won all their games this year through great teamwork which gave them an amazing number of bonus points. The final versus Mayfair was close, with Parkvale winning 265 - 255. Well done to Parris, Joshua, Stefan, Brody, Natasha and Amy!

Guest blogger Parris gives us this short report:

"Last Thursday Parkvale Moriarty competed in the finals for Volleyball they faced Mayfair. It was a really tough game and everyone used personal best. We were hoping to keep our undefeated title! When it was half time we drew and then we had to step up the game. The team was so nervous and Stefan was getting a bit fired up.
But then the hooter went we were very excited and then Mr. Severinson said 265 to Parkvale and 255 to Mayfair!"

The Champs!

Today we had the senior triathlon. It was amazing! I feel lucky to have witnessed such determination and effort in our students. Well done to Casey for winning the Year 6 girls competitive race and Parris for winning the Year 5 girls! What tough races! We quickly posted our feelings about the triathlon on the Wall above. Add to it if you like.
