Camp 2019

What a fun week we had at camp last week! For some of our year 5s, this was the first time they had been away from home! We stayed in tents on our school field for two nights:

The teachers all arrived before sunrise on Wednesday morning, to begin setting up the tents. This beautiful sunrise made the early morning well worth it! Don't we live in the most beautiful place?!

Mr Burt, along with a group of fantastic year 8s and whānau, took us kayaking down at the beach:

Mr Jacobsen taught us how to play cycloball:

We did so many fantastic activities and everyone participated and had a great three days! Keep an eye out for our movie which will show some more of the footage from camp.

Te Wā Toi

We have been working on our final pieces of aboriginal artwork. After researching some aboriginal stories, we came up with our own stories which we wanted to tell through art. We used dye to create our backgrounds. We are now starting to add the aboriginal symbols onto our backgrounds to tell our various stories!

Here are some photos of us creating our backgrounds. Check in soon to find out how we created our aboriginal symbols and to see our final works of art!

Wet the teacher!

Today in Team 4, the teachers put themselves on the line, dressed in an array of swimming accessories and prepared to get hit by a number of wet sponges. Little did the teachers know that they would also have the buckets of cold water tipped over them! This was all much to the amusement of the team 4 children!

Stay tuned for some of our awesome writing. In the meantime, see what we got up to in the photos below!
