Swimming Sports a great success

Netherby School enjoyed competing against Fairton and Chertsey School in the swimming sports last week. There was some good parent support, and some serious swimming races.

The following children are congratulated for making it to the Counties Sports Championships:

Meagan Binnie
William Fifita
Anna Gray
Crystal Bentley

Crystal placed 3rd in one of her events, and Meagan place 2nd in two of her events. These are good achievements and we congratulate you all for getting there and double congratulations to those who placed.

Meagan is going to the Canterbury Championships to represent us! Best of luck Meagan, we are all behind you.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
