Today our Year 8s were presented with their Leavers Hoodies that they get to wear for Term 4. A huge thank you to Kelly for organising this and Ryan Earthmoving Ltd and Ray White Rangiora for sponsoring these hoodies. Shae is hiding in the background and Rory was away. I learnt something today… there are some interesting nicknames amongst our year 8s. 😊
