Inspired by Tane's story, Preschoolers have each decorated their own kete of knowledge. During their time at Marsden Preschool we will add objects to the kete that reflect our children's learnings so they can take this knowledge with them when they turn 5 and transition to Primary School. We also continued celebrating Chinese New Year, saying farewell to the Year of the Rat and welcoming the Year of the Ox.

Andrea's team batted 1st, scoring 276, bowling out the Māori girls team for 170. She said "It was a really fun, competitive day with lots of young talent coming through. It is an awesome way to raise the profile of Womens' Cricket and especially the NZ Māori Schools Teams." Players from both teams were presented with Gold pins by the Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy and all players signed a bat which was gifted to the Governor General. It's been a busy time for Andrea as her Wanderers/Blaze XI played the previous weekend at the Basin Reserve vs a Governor General's Secondary School Girls XI. She opened the batting and scored 54 runs towards her team's total of 153 runs, securing a victory against the girls who made 107. A great summer of cricket!

She has been touring her debut solo comedy show "The Cool Mum" around the South Island since mid 2020, winning the Best Solo Show and Audience Fav at the Nelson Fringe Festival. The show is a parody of a celebrity parenting seminar and she is bringing it to the Wellington Fringe Festival in March. Joanna assures us she takes her day job very seriously, but her comedy persona, Jo Ghastly, is a different story.
