Thanks for a great term
The students would like to thank all the teachers and staff for teaching us and taking care of us this term.
Students we think people are getting better at Maths Whizz and working hard. At the Matariki concert we did a good job and it taught people in the audience about Matariki.
We wish all the school a happy holidays.
Safire and Grace.
Friday Fun Day
This Friday us students are taking over:
We can wear mufti... Sushi will be for sale... We are going to have a sausage sizzle (for FREE!!).
We can bring toys to school to play with in the afternoon. We can also bring some PJ's to change into if we want.
In the middle block we are going to have a house challenge and try to win chocolate fish and house points.

Seals use whiskers to find food
Elephant seals find their food by using their whiskers. Seals spend most of their time fishing in the ocean, in the dark.
They found that the seals locate their food by moving their whiskers like satellite antennas to sense water movement.

Please collecting items to donate to our garage sale
We are aiming to have a garage sale to raise funds to plant a small orchard at the school and an orchard house.
The garage sale will be early next term and students can start collecting things to bring into school over the next few weeks. Big items we would prefer just before the sale. Other items can be brought in during the first week of term 3.
Schools around the world

We are grateful for our school and all the things we have, the good teachers, devices, toys, books and other stuff.
