This year we had Olivia and Reece teaching us for Kiwi Can each week. We did a lot of talking about different values and how we can show this in everyday life. Room 2 won the Kiwi Can competition in Term 4 so we got to do an Amazing Race. This involved us eating ice cubes, eating dry Weet-bix, shooting hoops and finding a hidden flag. It was great fun!
Congratulations to Zanjoe who won the Senior School speech competition this year. He went on to represent Netherby School at the Rotary Speech Competition. He wrote his speech about why he is scared of clowns. Zanjoe got a special mention at the Rotary competition. We are very proud of him!

On Wednesday 21st June the Year 5/6 students of Netherby went to the Event Centre to perform at the Mid Canterbury Music Festival. It was our night to shine. Our school got to perform songs with other schools such as Rise, Radio Gaga, Purple People Eater and Ma te Mahi Ka Ora. During the song You're the Voice there was a student from the Ashburton College who performed with us who played the bagpipes which was awesome to watch. During the night Netherby School got to perform its own two songs. They were Hakatere E and The Cup Song. People were well entertained by The Cup Song and they were amazed by how fast the students were moving the cups and they enjoyed the actions in Hakatere E. The whole night was a success but the next day we were all really tired!
