They underwent an extensive application process that consisted of volunteer work, an assembly speech, a team building day, voting by students and staff, and then ultimately the formal interview. Over the holidays they have participated in a volunteer day at Camp Quality and have recently completed their orientation and planning day with their school council. ​ New ride for a new year HANG ON: Burnham School pupils can now go for a jet boat ride without ever leaving the playground. The new piece of play equipment has proved popular since children returned to school last week. Ready to get your land use consent to farm for Selwyn?
