Waikato Full Primary Cross Country 2023
On Wednesday, Stanley Avenue School hosted representatives from 40 schools across the greater Waikato region. The Waikato Full Primary is exclusive to Year 7/8 runners only from full primary schools. The weather was sweltering from early in the day and some stand out performances were achieved from our Stanley Avenue runners.
In large fields (average 70 runners) our students ran to the best of their abilities and produced some great results. Of note, Xavier Van Kuijk came 2nd, Blake Watts 6th, Connor Wood 12th and Charlie Knight 13th, all in the Year 8 Boys race. This meant they were the top placed Year 8 Boys team overall. In the Year 7 Boys race, Erik Pollock ran a great race and finished 11th in a fast race.
For the second year in a row the entire Stanley Avenue team placed second overall in the 100-300 schools category. A tremendous achievement!
A big thank you must go to our staff, parents and community members who assisted and made the day the success it was.

School Travel Plan
Matamata-Piako District Council are working with your school and Traffic Planning Consultants (TPC) to create a School Travel Plan to help make it safer and easier for students to walk, bike or scoot to school. The School Travel Plan will identify current issues/concerns and barriers to children walking, biking and scooting to school and aims to provide safer solutions alongside encouraging behavioural changes to continue making these solutions safe for the long term.
We invite you to fill in the survey below so we are able to analyse current data and safety concerns. Survey closes Friday 22nd September.
There will be prizes for the class with the most responses!
Although there is no budget allocated to making physical improvements at this stage, we are working with interested schools to make positive behavioural changes which will improve immediate safety and wellbeing and to make a plan so we are ready to take action when funding becomes available.

Purchase your Own New SAS Sports Shirt!
We have gone live on DirectGroup Uniforms with our new Sports Shirts that you are able to purchase. We feel moving forward this is a great option and will save a lot of time issuing and collecting sports shirts. At this time we still have our other sports shirts for anyone that is playing and has not purchased their own yet. Check them out at:
You can purchase the sport shirts and they arrive directly to your address and they even have Afterpay so that it makes it possible to budget. We are looking forward to seeing these appearing on our sports fields.
