We made a short movie

We wanted to show the cultural diversity that co-exists in our class. Students learnt to use an online video recorder. Tauira (students) focused on lighting, sound quality and collaboration to complete tasks. It took us a few days to complete our movie making project. We are happy with our first attempt and feel confident to make others. Give us feedback.

Hinepau by Gavin Bisphop

Today we had a treat because the theatre came to school, in the form of Hinepau. A play based on the storybook by Gavin Bishop. Hinepau is a mythical story about respecting your environment and staying true to yourself.

Kua reri a tatou mo te timata o te wahanga tuatoru

At our school we have been learning to powhiri new students and staff into our school. The tamariki have been learning about the powhiri process. What happens.When it happens. Why it happens and How it all happens. The tamariki have been learning to stand with pride and confidence to say their mihi and a little about their identity (their mountain, river of life, tribe and whanau). 

We started the first day of Term 3 welcoming new students and staff to our school. Nga mihi mahana ki nga tuakana ko Tahurangi ratou ko Waimirirangi, Tia, Havahna, Mata ki Ulua, Justin for leading our school powhiri. Ka rawe.

Ko tenei te ra whakamutunga mo te wahanga tuarua

Today is the last day of school for term 2. I am proud of all we have achieved so far. We have just finished final school assembly and we are holding certificates for excellent attendance and some of us received a certificate for a dance competition. If you look closely you will see a pinky-orange trophy. We won class of the week for showing the school values and being awesome. Have a well deserved break and come back ready to learn more exciting things.
