Welcome to Whakatane Intermediate School
" A friendly, caring school with quality learning and quality behaviour that respects the needs of the individual student in the spirit of partnership between the school, caregivers and the community."
Last week Molly Byford Rm6),
Kyra Seymour (Rm19) and Crystal-Jaz Hudson (Rm6) represented our school at the Bay of Plenty Area Secondary Schools Showjumping Competition. There were 100 riders and only a handful were intermediate age students (the rest being high school students). The students each competed in 3 different sections. Molly placed 4th & 9th, Kyra placed 4th, 5th & 11th and Crystal-Jaz placed 11th. Thank you to the students’ parents for transporting them. A huge thanks to Steve Byford for looking after the girls and Anna Seymour for helping the pony club with the BBQ.
STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT - Congratulations to
Bryn Evans (Rm10) who competed in the 5km Copthorne Trail run in Rotorua last weekend. He came 5th in his age group and 7th overall out of 199 participants. This is a great result. (Item submitted by Lisa Evans.)

NZ POLICE AND NZ FIRE SERVICE MESSAGE TO STUDENTS AND WHANAU ABOUT THE CURRENT EXTREME FIRE RISK AND RISK AROUND PLAYING WITH MATCHES OR LIGHTERS
With summer well and truly upon us, grasses, trees and bush-land are very dry and are very easily ignited. There is another heat wave heading our way so it is going to be even dryer. Matches and lighters are tools not toys. They should be used by adults only and it is the adults’ responsibility to keep matches and lighters out of harm’s way. Many fires are started by children. Children are often burnt while doing so.
