Class of the week

We were picked for class of the week. We had been noticed for listening to the lunch duty teacher and following instructions. For showing appreciation (clapping) at assembly at the end of performances and for students who received certificates. For showing respect at taumata (morning assembly) sitting up nice and listening to the speaker. Whaea Verbina is very proud of you. Kia mau koutou ki nga uara o te kura nei. Karawhuia.

Waka haerenga

During the course of the day the whole school travelled to Opua. The kaitiaki of the waka hourua (double hull waka) Ngahiraka-mai-tawhiti invited us all to visit them and learnthe hoe about waka voyaging. We were met by Whaea Joelene, Matua Oti and their rangatahi. They did three informative activities and we enjoyed them all. Activity 1: an information talk about the history of Ngahiraka-mai-tawhiti. Activity 2: learning about hoe (paddles) and working together. Activity 3: going onboard Ngahiraka-mai-tawhiti. Here are some photos of our trip.

Blues rugby team

They came to hang out at big lunchtime with all the tamariki. They gave away cool stuff like flags, posters, hats, game tickets and everyone received something to take home. Their visit was thoroughly enjoyed and we wish them luck for their game tomorrow against The Chiefs.
