Harlan from Sandy Beach School was buried alive this morning. He nearly died in the sandpit today at morning tea time. He is only 7 and a half years old. Max, Lars and Zeke, his so called friends, buried him alive in the sand. Harlan said, “it felt soft at first but hard when I tried to get out.” He was scared and happy because it felt nice. He couldn’t breathe very well though so he ripped the sand off. When he got out he had sand in his hair, on his lips and all over his arms and legs. He had to wash it off before he went to class. We are very lucky to still have him alive!
A few weeks back we had our school Cross Country. Everyone trained hard for the big day and gave the race their best shot! We are super proud of Hannah for winning the girls race and Devlin for getting 5th in the boys. Our perseverance shout-outs go to Jade, Zeke and Te Aranga who gave it a go even though it got tough! Awesome running everyone!
