The lead up has been intense and the competition rife, in both the staff and the students...

What a great afternoon at O.I.S!!!  Some beautiful singing, great dance moves and colourful props.  This year each house sang 'Tutira mai nga iwi' and a chosen piece from the '80s era: Konini - I Love a Rainy Night, Kowhai - Footloose, Rata - Wake Me Up and Ngaio - I'm Still Standing. Congratulations to everyone involved. The final placings and awards were as follows:

  • 3rd - Konini
  • 4th - Kowhai
