Last week our two exercise groups (30 men and women) did a trip to Lyttleton. Went to the Time Ball and after a "tour" went to the Lyttleton Club for a pre-arranged buffet style lunch. The food was fresh /delicious & there was plenty of it, and the atmosphere was great (friendly staff). $12.50pp. he view is superb. Watched the Time Ball descend at 1pm. Thank you to the Club staff for their warm welcome and the way they offered us a great lunch service. Thanks Trudi (Manager).

Students have been asked to stay away until further notice. Make sure you keep up to date here.
Around 45 tonnes of soft plastics end up at Christchurch's EcoSort recycling plant each month because people mistakenly believe they will be recycled.
Please put your soft plastics in the red bin. Soft plastics are any plastics that can be easily scrunched or bend in your hand like plastic bags, cling film, courier bags, bubble wrap and cellophane.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Wattie’s NZ and the 150 schools who took part in this year's Cans for Good campaign. Thanks to the incredible effort of students, teachers and whānau, over 30,000 cans were collected and will make a huge difference to Salvation Army foodbanks around Aotearoa.
Wattie’s generously donated a further 25,000 cans taking the total number collected to over 56,000 cans.
