Maddi Wesche (Lynfield student 2013 - 2017), grew up watching all sports at the Olympic Games, but it was the sport of shot put that she excelled in. She competes in the World Champs in Doha this week and is doing all she can to one day wear the fern at the Olympic Games.
It is always exciting to follow the journeys of our students. Maddi's journey and Olympic vision can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/275222050212/posts/10156223126915213?sfns=mo

All of our team have been at work the last four months on a small project for a very prestigious film festival in New York, the JCS International Young Creatives Emmy Award.The festival was designed by JCS International to encourage creativity from emerging filmmakers around the world while creating a global conversation around a range of different aspects around Peace.
The theme of the festival this year is ‘Stand Up For Peace’. This statement can be interpreted in a number of different ways. We chose to create a film on an aspect of peace that hits close to home for all audiences. To be at peace with one's spirit.
'A Peace Of Mind' follows the story of a little boy, who finds himself not at peace with himself due to the pressures of being in a world that he feels does not care for him. The story shows us that peace is something that is not just physical, but something spiritual and is something to embrace and promote in all points of the compass.
This story is to communicate the importance of standing up for one's inner peace. We've just entered our film in and are so excited to say that it has been accepted through to the voting round of judging. You can find the film as well as the voting page at the JCS international young creatives award page on the international Emmys website. On behalf of all our cast and crew, we hope that our little story moves you all to support our film and vote!
Online Public Voting (first round of judging) will be open September 11-18 (closing at 12:00 noon EST): https://www.facebook.com/iemmys/photos/a.10150659867942732/10156152814362732/?type=3&theater
Once the Online Public Voting has closed, the twenty (20) videos with the most votes on the judging portal will move on to the Final Round of Judging which will take place September 26 in New York City.

What a fantastic time our athletes had at NZSS Winter Tournament Week! Every one of our players represented our school with pride and determination to give their best 100% of the time they were on the field / court / turf / ice. Every one of our teams learned so much - about their skill sets, game play and themselves.
And let's not forget the supporters who travelled 100's of km in some cases, to watch and support from the sideline ... thank you, your support is greatly appreciated, as are your photographs.
