League Zonal Competition

Last Tuesday, Auckland Rugby League held the North Western Zone primary schools league tournament at Riverhead War Memorial Park for all the schools from the West. The tournament was well organised and very competitive.
The Matipo Mustangs played 4 games in pool B winning all 4 games. The game against the Helensville Lancers was our hardest, winning that game by only one try. In the final we played The West Harbour Warriors winning the game by 5 tries to 2.
The boys were brilliant playing as a team. There were also many wonderful standout performances with excellent leadership from Jerome Jarvie-Otufangavalu and our captain Blayze Williams. Our player of the day was Akira Luamanuvae Su’a who was great in attack but absolutely brilliant in defence.
Thank you to all the parents and whanau who helped with transport, support, photographs and oranges.

Southern Spars Visit

With the excitement of the Americas Cup we were lucky enough to have Jarrad Wallace from Southern Spars come to Room 18 and share his knowledge of what it’s like to build the mast for these magnificent boats.  We learnt so much about how these are constructed and how many machines are involved.  The children got to sit on one of the spreaders which are designed to carry 800kg of compression, and break around 2000kg!  I think we were safe 🙂southernspars

Back to School Costs

With a few articles in the media recently about the high back to school costs some schools force on families, we thought it worth pointing out our stance.

Stationary packs for New Entrants / Middle & Senior syndicates are $18 with Juniors at $16. We make between 50c and $1 profit per pack with the proceeds going to your child’s school. Our exercise books are NZ made, keeping New Zealander’s in work, are good quality, and all the classes have standardised books.

School donation is $70 per child, $100 per family. It is voluntary, tax deductible, and if paid by the end of the term, you go into a lucky prize draw for a Sharp Mini Sound System valued at $270. We are in only school in NZ that offers a full, money back guarantee if you are unsatisfied with any aspect of our school performance.
