The Intermediate Department has started 2016 with a buzz of excitement and enthusiasm. Highlights specific to our department so far this term have been:
- Settling in with the help of Y12/13“Big Sisters” and Y8 “Mabels”
- EOTC day led by Mr McIvor
- Lindisfarne social
- EPro8 Engineering Challenge held at Havelock North Intermediate
- Intermediate Swimming competition.
EOTC day was all about team work, co-operation and fun!
Hannah Roberts, Clem Coates, Isobel Ham and Lilly Powell ready to test their skills at the EPro8 Challenge.
Ella Simmons, Claire Wallace, Phoebe Burns and Rachel Hansen tackle an engineering problem with determination.
Alexandra Pettigrew-Heeps and Bella Wright are happy to be supported by Violet Sanders and Suzanna Hansen.
Girls are also in full swing with prep expectations, assignments and assessment tasks. It is pleasing to see the girls focussing on the academic cornerstone so diligently at this early stage of the year. The importance of utilising class time and managing busy workloads is a priority for all.
