Congratulations to all our super chess players who did an amazing job representing our school at the Interschool Chess Challenge yesterday at HSPA. We won the primary division, earning us a place in the semi-finals next term and also had the top 6 highest scoring players in the tournament! Well done Jamie (1st), Noah (2nd), Hunter (3rd), Connor (4th), Akira (5th) and Ty (6th). A great result today and also excellent sportsmanship, camaraderie and enthusiasm. Congratulations, everyone!

Today we visited Healthy Harold and learned about making good choices. Lisa was fantastic and we learned:
– attitudes to smoking have changed
– only 1.5 in 10 people smoke now
– there are 7000 chemicals in a cigarette, including tar, arsenic, ammonia, toluene, hydrogen cyanide, acetone, DDT, butane, cadmium and methanol.
– if you smoke then your heart has to work harder and your lungs don’t work as well
– if someone quits smoking their body can start to repair
