Teacher Only Day

Dear Parents and Caregivers

This is just a reminder of our Teacher Only Day this Wednesday the 30th of August. The school will be closed for the day, but it will be business as usual on Thursday again. 

The day will be spent on professional development in the area of assessment with staff from other schools within our Westland Community of Learning. 

Kind regards
Casper Kruger

Water for Life

Learning about New Zealand's Freshwater Invertebrates.

As part of our Enviro Schools unit of "Water for Life", the Hoiho Room studied some of the freshwater invertebrates they could find in Duck Creek just behind our school.

Thank you for following our learning journey.

Planting a tree

Earlier this week, the very small Kea Class planted a tree to help us with our recount writing. This is a picture of it all finished and in the ground. If you check out the blogs of the students in the Kea Class later this week, you will be able to read the writing that we produced from it. It was very fun!
