The Waka on Avon experience gives our students the opportunity to learn about Māori culture and also history of the local area. They started with some games and then out on the water in a Waka. Each group were taken on a walking tour around Victoria Square and the river. Some of our girls performed a Māori song to thank the waka crew 😊

Our Term 1 trip to the West Coast was blessed with perfect weather for the outdoor activities we had planned. The stunning scenery in Punakaiki can be enjoyed in kayaks on the river, walking around natural attractions, on beach walks and it’s the perfect place for yoga. Our toilet paper wedding dress competition proved what amazing designs can be made in one hour. The interactive activity at Shantytown gave the girls an opportunity to dress up, learn about the history of the West Coast and pan for gold.

Having an offsite Orientation for our new student arrivals means they can relax and meet new people as well see the Christchurch city sights and have new experiences.

We love it when our students step outside their comfort zone and try new experiences. Airi, Marin & Yui went on their PE Leap class overnight tramp near Mt Somers. They slept in tents, cooked their own food and didn’t have showers! They said the scenery was beautiful when they returned but they are ready for a shower and a comfy bed . Scenery photos will be posted soon!

Term 1 started with the arrival of many new students including boys and girls from Mejiro who are studying at Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’. We were delighted to welcome Mejiro students back to our schools.

The last post for 2023 is for the most celebrated event this year. Nicole Kim has been an international student at Avonside Girls’ High School for five years. At Senior Prizegiving Nicole received the highest award at our school. Her academic results were the highest in Year 13 and she was awarded Dux of 2023. She has studied diligently over the past five years and has also been involved in school councils, she was Head Libriarian, and involved herself in volunteer work. We are very proud of her achievements. Next year she will join her sister Jenny at Otago University. Jenny graduated Avonside in 2022 and they both hope to venture into the medical profession. We were delighted to welcome their parents at Prizegiving this year and thank them and the girls’ agents Betty and Terry from Plus Consulting. We wish the girls all the best for their future.

Arisa and Natsuki studied at Avonside Girls’ this year on a one year programme and we were very proud when they received awards at our Junior Prizegiving. We wish them both all the best back Japan.

Our 2023 end of year programme activities included making Christmas cards for the elderly in our community, surfing, ice skating, making cookies for host families, a trip to Hanmer, Harakeke weaving and a City Challenge. This is just some of the fun we had over 4 weeks 😀

During our end of year programme we ran a session on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our students learnt how these 17 goals are important to our planet and people. They made a key ring in the colours of the goals they wanted to support. Thank you to for the kits we used to make this session possible.

As 2024 approaches we want to celebrate the volunteer work our students participated in over the last few months of 2023. Thank you for helping our community ❤️

Well done to Fuka who made it to the top of the mountain with Georgi, not only our great driver but ski instructor/ guide from Smylies.

Last day and the sun is still out. It's very chilly on the mountain but everyone's having fun.

And we made it to Tekapo. That's the place in the background of the photo from the top of Mt John. The girls 'love' it here.

Stop 2: Geraldine for ice - creams and shopping. There are a great range of shops here.

Last stop before Tekapo. And when it's hard to make a decision between the Pork belly and Apple Pie or the Salmon and Bacon; you go halves and have both!
Students found another playground to lunch in the sun.

Our new students this year attended the Christchurch City Mayor's welcome with other schools yesterday. Despite the rain and snow they had a warm welcome at a local marae.

And we're off again. This time to Tekapo. Snow on the Southern Alps and the sun is out. First stop at Rakaia, with the iconic trout which is hard to miss and time on the playground.

First stop on our way to Oamaru to see the penguins. We have come to Mrs Franklin's place to pick her up to come with us and before we leave we are feeding her sheep. Mrs Franklin teaches Geography and looks after the Badminton Club. We are so happy she is coming with us on our weekend away.

Our students were offered the opportunity to help at the annual Poppy Day appeal which precedes ANZAC day. The donations received are used to help improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for New Zealand's veterans of all ages. Thank you to Arisa, Natsuki, Ayaka, Nanako and Mila for giving their time to help this week.

Over the last two weeks we had our annual baking sessions to make 80 Easter cupcakes for the elderly residents at Windsor Care. We meet some past pupils from Avonside Girls' High including one resident who was at Avonside in 1937 and she is about to celebrate her 100th birthday 🎂 ❤

With daylight saving ending today our summer is also coming to an end. We were awake early and it was a beautiful morning for a walk at our local beach.
