Tēnā koutou katoa,
What a busy start to the term! Everyone is really enjoying the science focus. I have seen some amazing scientific thinking and experiments across the school. The children just love generating and testing ideas through hands-on practical activities, gathering evidence by making observations, carrying out investigations, communicating, and debating with each other – in order to develop their scientific knowledge, understanding, and explanations.
Last week we introduced a whole school singing assembly (see the photo above). A wide range of waiata and songs were sung from different countries e.g. New Zealand, Samoa, South Africa. Kasha Klee and Natalie Emery led the singing with so much enthusiasm. The children loved it!
There is so much happening around the school at the moment, some examples are the Y3-6 children are learning squash, Bike Check Day in School (Y5-6), Kapa Haka, and Science in the Van. Krypton Factor on Sunday was brilliant, I really enjoyed watching the children work together as a team and showing fantastic sportsmanship. All of these activities happen because of the organisation of the teachers involved, a huge thank you for their time and efforts.
I am really looking forward to the Parent Information Evening on Wednesday 26th May from 6.00 pm - 7.30 pm. We have a range of workshops available so please make sure you come along.
We have a Pacific Fono on Monday 31st May. I will be sending more details out early next week.
Don't forget we have Teacher Only Days scheduled for Friday 4th June and Tuesday 8th June.
The PTA met on Monday evening and the Quiz Night on Saturday 26th June is shaping up to be a very exciting event. So looking forward to us all being Superheros!
