Monday 1 May

I have to confess I was nervously excited about the start of Term 2, but with lovely children like yours, it was a focused learning day. There is no swimming in term 2 or 3 as it is too cold, the kids get sick and we focus on other skills rather than just swimming. We can have a pool Party in Week 10 but no class swimming.

It was wonderful to welcome Mr Andrew Brown who is our new principal. We were fantastic at the powhiri and thought that his past school, Bayview BOT, adults, teachers and pupils were very generous to hand him over to us in such a great way. The singing, speeches, welcomes and hongi all were such a powerful greeting.
Photos have been handed out. They are lovely.

Today is the last day of school for two weeks.

Thanks to everyone who supplied a fantastic morning tea. The children ate so much and there was even enough for afternoon tea after our pool party.

Te Whare and the great learning that goes with it!

When I was away I got Mr Jukes to add to the children's Maori knowledge by studying traditional carvings and drawing these tiki faces.

We finished our butterfly art.They are beautiful and up already.
