Bayfield High School welcomed year 8 students and staff from Tahuna Intermediate School today for two hours of activities across the curriculum. The students all enjoyed sampling some of what the school has to offer as well as the yummy treats they received. Staff and guides were impressed by the students' enthusiasm and good behaviour. Thanks to everyone involved for helping to make this visit a fun learning experience.

Bayfield has been very busy hosting year 8 children, their parents and their caregivers, as we showcase what we have to offer at our school. Last term, we hosted Arthur Street students, who had the chance to work in the Textiles and Woodwork rooms. On Wednesday 3rd of August, students and teachers from Macandrew Intermediate, Dunedin North Intermediate, and Arthur Street School came to enjoy an activities-packed morning. Moving in small groups around the school, students had the chance to make fruit kebabs, to participate in various sports games, to work with ICT, to become ghosts by using green-screen technology with the Media Studies teacher to learn some different languages, to conduct experiments in Science, and much more. Tahuna Intermediate will be visiting the school on 11th August.

Hockey is a growing strength at Bayfield High School under the tutelage of Mr Homer, who coaches the boys' teams, and Mrs Tonks who has developing girls' teams.
Boys from both Bayfield and Tahuna Intermediate enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the courts on Tuesday, being coached both by senior Bayfield students and by ex-Bayfield students. Ex-Bayfielder, Morgan, who is now in his sixth year of studying at the University of Otago working towards his Masters in Zoology, said that he enjoyed returning the Bayfield to help young students develop their hockey skills, and that he is proud of his on-going association with the school. Senior students, Morgan Harris and Josh Hunter, also enjoyed getting to know the younger students from Tahuna and passing on some of their knowledge.
Check out Facebook over the next couple of days to see more photos of the afternoon.
