On Monday August 25th we supported the annual SPCA cupcake day selling and making cupcakes. It was a great success and we sold at least 400 cupcakes. The money will go toward the buildings, feeding and finding new homes for animals as well as looking after them. Thank you for helping us raise money.
On Friday we took a team year 5 and 6 students to compete in the 2014 Manawatu Mathex competition. Each year group competed against over 40 other teams from the Manawatu region, completing practical and quick-fire challenges in the 40 minute competition. We are thrilled with the Year 6 team coming 2nd equal and also our year 5′s finishing mid field, although only 4 questions behind the leaders.
See if you can answer just one of their questions?
1. A carton holds two-dozen cans of drink. Each can contains 375ml.

2.Sally is 14 years older than Sean. The sum of their ages is 48.
