September 2008 Recipients
Mauriceville School’s grant of $3,300 will be used to purchase new gym and sports equipment. The current equipment is in urgent need of replacing.
The 22 pupil, two classroom primary school is located just north of Masterton.
Mauriceville School Principal Rebecca Stevens hopes the new gym equipment will mean the school can provide the children with high quality sports education while still meeting their individual needs.
“Physical education is a required part of the curriculum. We feel that upgrading our equipment will inspire more students to participate in physical education programmes.”
The school’s motto is ‘Learning Together, Learning Forever’ which emphasises their belief that learning is a life long process and enhanced when families are involved. Stevens says they aim to see increased fitness and physical confidence in the children and this will be communicated to parents through school reports and assessments.
