Room 7 learnt to say Windy Wellington in sign language.  Have a try yourself.

Wellington Museum Trip

Wellington Museum Trip
Friday the 22nd of June 2018 the Middle Syndicate boarded two buses and headed into the city for learning experiences at the Wellington Museum.
We happened to be at the waterfront the same day the navy landed one of their helicopters!  It was pretty exciting watching them land and then later in the day they invited us for a closer look.
Visiting the Wellington Museum we had workshops which included learning about our harbour, traditional Maori legends, exploring how to look after our harbour, Paddy the harbour dog and exploring the museum.  
We also had a puppet show involving some special characters - Nan, her grandson and eels!  We have an important part to play looking after our awa.

Lastly exploring our waterfront and all it has to offer.  What an incredible day!

'The Saints' visit.

Thanks for creating this slideshow, Maggie and Rose!

Northern Zone Cross Country

Last Wednesday was the Northern Zone Cross Country.  28 awesome students ran to represent our school and we were very proud of them - not just because they ran fast, but because they were so enthusiastic, even though it poured with rain and was extremely muddy.  

Well done to the following students:
From the middles - Amelie, Katya, Hannah Z, Charlotte, Alicia, Aiden, Caleb, Sean, Tinashe and Fergus.
From the seniors - Lucy, Lucia, Jessica S, Karenza, Zaria, Oliver, Riley B, Alessandro, Charlie, Codie, Hannah W, Macy, Lily, Oscar, Roman, Daniel M, Rory and Sam M.

Room 3:  We have been learning to use chalk pastels to blend colours when creating pieces of art.  These are some of our creations which we are very proud of.   Here is one of our creative and imaginative stories using artwork as inspiration for our writing.  Who knows, this may become a legend one day!
