There is a brilliant new New Zealand website celebrating children’s literature.
“The Sapling" is a website all about children’s books, because books grow humans. We take kids’ lit seriously, and we show it by commissioning essays, interviews, reviews and even crafts from some amazing kiwi writers and illustrators. You can find us at www.thesapling.co.nz, and follow us on Facebook @thesaplingnz and Twitter @TheSaplingNZ. Join our conversation!”

Congratulations to our super star swimmers who competed in the South East Schools Swimming Sports last week. All of our 16 swimmers competed very well and several made the finals. Well done to those that placed in the top 3. The final race of the day was the relay, and Tamahere School held the trophy from last year….AND our top six swimmers did it again! Once again we are the champions! Great job everyone!
Thank you to the several parents that helped with transport, time keeping, and looking after the children!
