Stanley Olympics 2022
Monday saw the week kick off with the Stanley Olympics opening ceremony. Teams paraded their banners and chants with enthusiasm and gusto, a great way to start a week of fun filled activities and trips.
Teams participated in fun rotations like a STEM challenge to build the highest tower, EPRO8 Electronics challenge to build a Caveman Car and a group performance practice for our performance and prize giving on Thursday afternoon. Along with a fantastic Master Chef session at the College on Tuesday where they created mouth-watering Bacon and Basil Tortellini and a stunning Swiss Roll.

Zero Waste Educators at Stanley Ave School
This week Zero Waste educators have been working with our Year 0 - 6 students, teaching about the importance of Recycling, Reusing, Reduce and Rot (compost). All students have been learning lots of valuable information about helping to have a 'sustainable tomorrow". Thank you to Vicki and Casey our Educators.
Book fair 12th to 15th September
Van Gogh in Room 6
The power of 'Yet' in Room 9
The class has read the book 'Giraffes cant Dance' which explores the 'Power of Yet' and learning from your mistakes, as they help us grow.
They have been talking about how our brain is a muscle, and when we have challenging learning it helps our brains grow stronger.
This all feeds into the Piwakawaka Teams' focus on a growth mindset.
Well done to some of our smallest members of Stanley Avenue School. This is some wonderfully challenging learning that will certainly be growing brains to be positive learners!
