Term 3 Week 4

AFW Festival Thank you
Thank you to parents, students and staff who all gave so generously of their time and talents to make the Arts Food and Wine Festival such a great success. We had an estimate of over 3000 people attending, 30+ ensembles performing, 87 parent volunteers and the food and wine trucks selling out of their wonderful food and beverages.

Thank you to the Arts Academy team for their time for months leading up to this event, and to the Facilities team for their partnership in getting this event to the resounding success that it was.

To the Music and Dance Parent supporters groups, our trumpets blow their horns in gratitude for the hundreds of hours in preparation and also on the day. Your feet may not thank you but I certainly do.

Please see the photos below of the event and enjoy the memories of the inaugural Arts Food and Wine Festival at Canterbury.

Congratulations Junior and Secondary Wakakirri entries
Well done to both the Secondary and Junior Wakakirri entries.  Both teams won awards for Best Story.  Junior Wakakirri for Best Mental Heath Story and Secondary for Best Raising Awareness Story and the Secondary entry also have received a nomination for Story of the Year.
