Year 5-6 Inter-school Cricket Field Day
On Thursday 21st March the Blockhouse Bay cricket team competed in the Year 5/6 Inter-school Field Day at the Eastdale Reserve. We entered 6 teams and our A1 team won the A Grade Section and the championship cup. Blockhouse Bay School teachers Mrs Hayley Davies and Mrs Sally Kilpatrick commented that there were some close matches but the children’s sportsmanship and encouragement of each other was outstanding. Overall, they were extremely proud of the teams’ performance.

Blockhouse Bay School staff and students dressed as a superhero, wore bright colours or dressed in cultural clothes for our Superhero Day. On Thursday 28th March we stood with our Muslim Community and thought about the heroes who helped the people of Christchurch and New Zealand. We walked in a school-wide parade and came together as a school and community to sing the National Anthem. Everyone looked beautiful in their outfits and we felt proud to be part of Blockhouse Bay School and the Blockhouse Bay Community.
