Flight of the Kiwi!

It is all excitement at APS this week as we are running our sell out performances of our production this week!

It is based around the theme of Flight (which is our school wide topic this term).

The production is called Flight of the Kiwi and is about a young kiwi on a search for his mother. It involves the whole school in acting and/or singing roles and includes film footage as well.

Sportopia!August 30, 2014

At the end of August Auckland Point School sent a special team of students to Sportopia.
Sportopia is a three day camp where teams of 14 students (usually year 5 and 6) compete against other schools in a wide range of sporting adventures.
Some of this year’s events were; darts, chess, Team Cheer, draughts, touch rugby, basketball, dodgeball, canoe polo, shooting, archery, pentanque, table tennis, climbing and cage soccer.
Our team brought home a number of special awards including two Team Spirit certificates, an individual trophy for Creative and Strategical Play and the Sportsmanship Trophy!
We all returned tired but proud of our skills and team work.
Well done US!
