Last night I had the pleasure of going to Northcote Point to do the Halloween trail. What an amazing community event. There were so many children and adults out visiting, scaring and enjoying a carnival atmosphere.

The decor and imagination were fabulous with the downs family "open home" just a treat for everyone.

No wonder the families look forward to this very special event.

Ghostly encounter!!!! Mrs Batty Dixon and Halloween creatures!

Lisa (who would recognise her) and Aaliyah. Creepy, in the nicest way!!!!!!

We had only one trick or treater so godies were all for ME!

Ava, Amelia, Coco and Poppy

Today the gymnastics team went to North Harbour to have a practice before the individual competition tomorrow and the team event on Thursday. They had a great time. Thanks Mel and the parents who helped transport the kids.

We read The Guardian of the bridge and talked about our own "guardian" kaitiaki. This is what several groups had done in Maori Language week with Mrs Leaf several years ago. We decided to make our own Kaitiaki.

Written Language was cinquains. Here is the format.

Several of our children from school are part of the Moth and Butterfly Trust,
