Term 1 Update

Kia ora whānau

What a fantastic term we are having so far.  Students are enjoying classes and exploring the world of Kiwiana as part of their Inquiry into what makes NZ unique.

Kapa Haka practice is going well.  Ngā Tupuranga will be performing part of their bracket on Saturday at the 'Wacky Water' Community day at Skoglund park.  The event goes from 12pm - 4pm down at Skoglund park with lots of things to do and it's all free.  Our senior team have been invited to perform from 12.30pm - 12.45pm.  Kids are coming down all ready to perform and dressed in their kākahu, meeting me at  12.10pm by the playground.  It should be lots of fun.

We had a fantastic time at our Mid Term Madness yesterday.  It was great to see whānau in classes from 2pm -3pm yesterday joining in on the activities and learning happening in our classrooms.  Our after school fun was a hit with all who attended too, games, activities out on the field, finished off with a sausage sizzle cooked by Mr Husband and Mrs How.  Our teachers had a lot of fun interacting with lots of whānau and our students.  Nga mihi to all who came down.

Wednesday Kapa Haka practice times:
ā Tupuranga:  11.30am - 1pm

Ngā Tipuranga:   2pm - 2.45pm
