Iona - Was awarded the Halswell Rugby League Netball -  Primary 'A' Most Improved Player

Xanthe - Was part of the Primary 'E' team. Xanthe had the honour if being chosen as the Emerging Player of the Year ... for the whole club. Outstanding result, Xanthe.

Sam - Was part of the Primary 'E' team as had the distinction of receiving the Player of the Year award.

Not only have the girls achieved in their chosen sport, they are amazing students who are outstanding role models. Well done, girls.

Rugby League stars of the future

Today we celebrate three talented rugby league players here at Oaklands.
Fletcher Due, Scott Butterick and Jacob Nyman travelled to the West Coast at the weekend to represent Canterbury 10s.

Selected along with 10 other boys from all over Canterbury after a day of trials, the boys won the 10s tournament and victor's trophy.

They won their first game 24-18 with Jacob scoring two tries in the second game which they won 48-6.

Well done, boys. Mr Hillary might just realise his dream of having someone from Oaklands play for the Warriors. Another example of Oaklands students out there being successful.

Jump Rope Friday

Last term the Kakano team took part in a Jump Rope for Heart event. We had planned to take part the previous Friday but it was raining too hard in the afternoon. The students had a fantastic afternoon. Teachers were impressed by their enthusiasm to give everything a go and do their best.  Thanks to all the parents who came along and supported this event.

Girls Football Week

This morning all the Year 3/4 girls took part in the Mainland Football Girls Week.  The girls had a fantastic time playing mini football (soccer) games and learning some new skills. They even got to meet Annalie Longo (who plays midfielder for the New Zealand Football Ferns) and get her autograph.
