Our wonderful choir has just done themselves proud at this fabulous event! The Christchurch Schools Music Festival is a fabulous musical extravaganza that is not to be missed. The Springston Choir proudly took their place after many hours of dedicated practice under the skilled guidance of Trisa Espiner. Here are some snaps from Carol's iPhone.

With a big aftershock yesterday, and already a smaller one this morning, it's timely to remind ourselves what to do in a quake.

The students from the Super 7 Scoopers Blog, St Clair School in Dunedin, have been wanting to talk to some of our students about their experiences during and after the big 7.1 earthquake.
So, today we had a Skype video conference to meet and chat with them. Three of their Year 6 students interviewed four of our Year 8 students (Emma-Rose, Georgia, Lucy, Courtney). They had some interesting questions, and were amazed at our stories. No doubt you'll be able to read what they thought in a post on their blog coming up soon!
Here are a couple of video snippets from the Skype call.
We suggested that the Scoopers listen to this Team Endeavour video created by Izaac, Josh and Tom. The sound and shaking is EXACTLY like in the big earthquake!
One of the questions asked was - what would you miss most in a Civil Defence Emergency - electricity or water? Please post us a comment to tell us what you think, and why.
Springston School's Choir will be preforming at the Christchurch School's Music Festival next week. We would appreciate it if you would come along and support us.
There will be a variety of songs to suit everyone's taste and the theme for this year: 'Theatre, Time and Tales'.

For Term 4 we are doing 'Let your imagination run wild' and the main part is based on The Arts. As dance is an art Mrs Watson (Room 8 teacher) has decided to run a Production called 'Peter and the Wolf'. Peter and the Wolf is an original classic written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. Because there is no speaking in this play each character is represented by a different musical instrument.
We will keep you up to speed with the dates once finalized. Keep checking our blogs for more information about the play.
