Shave for a Cure 2017

Each year thousands of Kiwis are sponsored to shave their heads in support of people living with blood cancer and leukaemia. This year Mr Rolfe and Mr Lyford joined Miles and Benj, as well as six Year 5 & 6 students to shave their heads in support of this cause. They raised over $5,000 for Shave for a Cure.

Term 2 School Disco 2017

On the 16th of June, we had our first school disco! Pod 1 & 2 had their disco first and Pod 3 & 4 followed on. There were glowsticks on sale, light-up glasses and funky hair extensions which lit up in the dark. The DJ played our favourite songs and even got us to act like zombies. We got the chance to do the limbo and some students were really good! The teachers joined in for a few dances and when we got tired of dancing, we hung out in the 'Chill Zone'. We all had a fun filled night and at the end, some people got to enjoy a sausage sizzle!

Rugby Sevens 2017

Mr Lyford and Mr Rolfe took 24 students to Lloyd Elsmore Park on Monday the 29th of May to play rugby at the East Auckland Rugby Field Day, where the Shelly Park players played against 7 other local schools. There were 2 teams from Shelly Park, and those teams were: U35 & U45. The U35 team won their 7 games and the U45 team won 5 of their games. All the boys had a lot of fun and were exhausted by the end of the day.

Aqua Fun Day 2017

On the 21st of March Pod 1 & 2 participated in their Aqua Fun Day. The activities were set up on the small field with lots of different stations all around. The school councillors helped out so the day could run smoothly and parents joined in to help too. School counsellor Hayley was chosen to ring the horn every 15 minutes which meant each group had to move on to the next station. There were fun things like catching bubbles, collecting marbles with your toes and slipping and sliding down a waterslide. One of the favourites was throwing sponges at faces. The obstacle course was tricky and everyone got sopping wet doing the water challenges. Terry heated the pool so it was extra warm and no one wanted to get out. It was an awesome day and luckily the rain didn’t ruin it.

Pod 3 & 4 swimmers sat in their house colour areas and the house leaders kept them going with cheers and chants. The groups were Dolphins, Marlins and Angelfish. Each group had different races and challenges. Parents braved the weather and came to support their kids.

Powhiri 2017

This year Shelly Park School held our first ever Powhiri to welcome the new teachers, Mr Rijns, Miss Cullum and Mrs Robson to our school. We had two very special guests - Whaea Taini and Whaea Mania who came from Te Whare o Matariki (the Marae in Howick). After the official speeches, the whole school sang Te Aroha and Tutiro Mai and the new teachers sang E Toru Nga Mea. Mr Rolfe welcomed everyone in English and Maori and Mr Stratford represented the Board of Trustees. Mr Rijns did us proud when he spoke in Maori and English to represent the new teachers. It was really special watching all the teachers being welcomed into Shelly Park School.
