    Congratulations to the Tauriko Allstars who won this morning's Literacy Quiz Cool

    Well done to their worthy opponents - Mangere Central Einsteins, Marco Polo, & Half Moon Bay - only half point differences between the leaders!

    A great way for students to participate online and test themselves against their peers. We will definitely do this again with the schools who couldn't join us this time.

    Double congratulations to Tauriko - XFactor won last week's Maths Quiz! Again another closely challenged competition with one point differentials between 3 of the teams. Some great sporting comments and encouragement to each other as well as they congratulated each other.
