Comfy chairs: Tomarata School children enjoy their library's new furniture collection. Helensville Primary School can stand tall with its fourth place in the primary school div- ision at a national chess tournament. Twenty-six schools took part in the Chess- Kids national champion- ship at Pigeon Mountain Primary in Auckland. Helensville started their chess team in term two this year, so I think our team can stand tall with their efforts, ChessKids coach Paul Macdonald says. Players from other schools that came in first, second and third have been playing for three years. He says the tourna- ment had moments of character building . One was when Helens- ville student Brayden Morris had an equal end- ing after clawing his way back into the game. His opponent was try- ing to win on time by repeating moves. Bray- den offered a draw no less than five times but was refused. If he had stopped the clock and asked for a draw, he would ve gotten it. But he continued playing, and in the end he lost on time. Helensville student Kumaa Jayachanthiian was the strongest player in the team. Schoolmate Marianne Birt overcame a very, very strong player from Bucklands Beach Inter- mediate. Parakai School was 11th out of 15 in the pri- mary school division. Parakai and Helens- ville were the only schools in the Rodney- Hibiscus Coast area to qualify for the nationals. Renovations to Toma- rata School s adminis- tration building meant its library got a face lift as well. Students Holly Danks and Rebecca Keven are excited about the new library with its furniture in eye-catching colours. The chairs are com- fortable and we enjoy sit- ting on them while we read, the girls say. Furniture includes beanbags, four curved chairs that form a circle when put together, four benches and six square cushions. Whangaparaoa Coll- ege s performing arts prizegiving was a red carpet event with stu- dents dressed up to the nines. It was opened by the school s kapa haka group. Characters from the school play Who is Dying to be a Millionaire compered and enter- tained the crowd. This was a cele- bration of the many students who were involved in a huge var- iety of extracurricular performing arts activi- ties, Whangaparaoa College year 13 dean and head of art Jo White says. The audience enjoyed a showcase of the year s work, with scenes ranging from the school s Stage Challenge to the college s play. The school s elite choir team Bellissimo enter- tained the audience with a medley of Lady Gaga, complete with moves. There were also per- formances by the school s various bands and choir groups. Wellsford volunteer firefighters are auc- tioning themselves off tomorrow as part of Wellsford School s fund- raiser for its Duffy Books in Home programme. A trivial pursuit kicks off the night, and six of the volunteer firefighters will go under the ham- mer at halftime. The evening s theme is Gold and Glorious, with prizes for best dressed.
