This 2 day tournament was a huge success for the SWIS teams this year. On the first day the girls had a successful day including beating eventual finalists Raroa 1 - 0. Unfortunately a lose to EBIS in the semi put an end to a potential rematch and we eventually finished 4th. The boys had a successful day as well, dominating their pool before a making their way through the knock out games setting up a rematch against Hutt in the final. This time Hutt reversed the result from pool play to claim a 2 - 1 victory and SWIS finished second. Well done to the players from both teams. You all played with skill and spirit. ...

It's Pink Shirt Day tomorrow. We're looking forward to seeing our wonderful students stand together to stop bullying by wearing their pink shirts (or partially pink shirts) and bringing a gold coin donation that will go to the Mental Health Foundation. Check back in tomorrow to see some wonderful photos of the staff and students of SWIS looking pretty in pink. ... See MoreSee Less
Kapa haka group performing tonight at a Diplomatic Reception at The Wellington Club. Good to get that first public performance under the belt. Unfortunately Minister Hipkins was unwell so couldn't attend so wasn't there to hear my witty yet poignant comments on the teacher strike 😉. Proud of this group of kids to be so keen to step up. ...
