You may have seen some of our students outside New World, collecting for CanTeen earlier in the week. They did a fabulous job and we received this email saying just how wonderfully they did!

"I just wanted to say thank you very much for allowing three of your wonderful students (Mikayla Donohue, Hannah Gear and Anna Bennett) to assist with the CanTeen street appeal last Friday. They are amazing young women who are confident and engaging, and I’m sure this had a lot to do with the fabulous total we collected. I believe volunteering for a charity is a great experience and adds to life skills, so think these girls will go far!

We raised $822, which, at this stage, is the highest amount raised from a single spot in the Manawatu area. The generosity of the Pahiatua community never ceases to amaze me.

Thanks again."

Junior Girls' Basketball Win!!!A huge congratulations to our Junior Girls' Basketball Team who won the final for their grade, beating St Peters College 36 - 34 in a nail-biting game. It was a very close, intense game but the girls all played amazing, and were the deserved winners! Thank you also to their fantastic coach, Mr Louis Jayasuriya who has put a huge amount of time and effort into the team this year.
Well done girls!
