Check out our new Rugby/Soccer goal posts

The installation of our new rugby/soccer goal posts has been a big task and has been 'on the list' of developments at Burnham School for a while now.We are deeply thankful to the following people who have helped install our new rugby/soccer goal posts:
  1. Paul Kissel - Paul is an alumni who attended last years 125th celebrations with his wife Heather. Paul has donated his time and earth moving and welding equipment to dig the holes, align and position the posts. 
  2. Dave Auton - Dave works with Paul and donated a day of work to us in helping install the posts.
  3. Greg Fagg - Greg is a new parent to our community, Jasmine his daughter has started in Room 1. Greg supported the men when installing and welding the posts.
  4. Andrew Fleck - Andrew has Ayden and Kieran at the school. Andrew also helped install the posts.
Right now Andrew, Paul and Dave are also on our Year 5/6 camp at Ngati Moki marae. We had some difficulty finding enough adults to ensure the safety of the children and so these wonderful men have donated another 3 days and 2 nights of their time in support of our school.

The photo below shows a lovely example the day after installation of how the posts are attracting the children before school and during break times to play and be active.

Thank you guys, we are very appreciative of your support.
