The winner of this competition, Wei Zin Chan, is expected to chose a partner to join them to represent Auckland at the National competition in September. So it is great that both girls will be able to compete at national level.
We are so proud of all the competitors for their effort. The commitment to training and then outcomes on the day were outstanding. Well done team!
I would also like to acknowledge the hard work of the other teachers who trained the students Miss Pillay and Mr Dammert and Mrs Wood, who was instrumental in making sure we had everything we needed to succeed on the day.
