Carterton School JNS award - Jack Britland

In its first term Carterton school received a number of fantastic nominations however a real stand out nomination was for Jack Britland. Jack was nominated by one of Carterton's school teachers Melanie Macgregor for his quick thinking and bravery at the school swimming sports event.

Jack noticed a younger student in trouble in the bigger pool and jumped in to hold him up and raise his arm for a lifeguard.

Ka pai Jack your teachers, fellow students, Sparky and the JNS team feel this nomination and reward was well deserved ....
