Principal’s Message

This week we celebrated the success of our tamariki in Terms 1 and 2.

This morning you should have received your child/rens school reports via email, paper copies are coming home this afternoon with the eldest child in each family. If your children are away from school today, your reports will be held in the school office. It was great to see how much success that our students had after two hard years. Please share these reports with your child/ren and celebrate how amazing they are.

Specialisation Day Art

Curriculum – Mr Tyrell

The winter season has had an impact on our students and daily attendance. However, there is still so much happening in our school.

Our Specialisation and after school activities are providing great learning opportunities and skills for our students this term.

After school ukulele has been a great opportunity for our students to learn to play an instrument. They were beginners when we started Term 2, now most are able to read ukulele chord sheets and play up to 4 to 8 chords. Some are beginning to read music, play the ukulele and sing at the same time. Great skills everyone! Thank you to our amazing Mrs Fullerton and Mr Tyrell for co-teaching our young musicians. We’ve had great progress in just 9 weeks!

Bucket Drumming
Our students have been learning to use musical notations and symbols to create their own rhythmic patterns. They write, read and play their own, and others creative rhythmic patterns.

Jumping June

On Tuesday 28th June we had a wonderful morning as a whole school with the Heart Foundation promoting Jumping June. Our students loved spending time across five stations of various activities involving skipping ropes. Thank you to all our teachers for their full engagement and organising the various activities. The Heart Foundation mascot “Hearty” was very popular with our students! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the exercise with some fun challenges throughout the morning.

Junky Monkeys

A great way to end week 9 with Junky Monkeys!

Junky Monkeys turns repurposed junk (a.k.a. Loose parts) into resources for creative play and promoting a cultural shift towards reduce, reuse, recycle and a circular economy.

Our school loved the huge range of loose parts and found creative ways to have fun, problem solve, relate well with others, and use their imagination!
