Harry and Te Koha from Room 1 built a fabulous boat & aeroplane this morning with Roger Blakey during Learning through play. They were able to describe in detail how they built them and how they could fly and float! Great work boys 🚢✈️

Nga whetu are busy each morning learning through play ❤️


A stunning morning in Lake Taupo. What an Awesome night we had last night. Starting with our Talent Show followed by roasting marshmallows over the fire pit with hot chocolate and cookies and to tire the crew out we ended the night with the Burma Trail and Spot light.

Two more rotations today followed by a mass clean up then back on the bus for home. We may be back earlier than expected so please keep an eye on on this page for updates.

See you all soon 😀

Rippa Rugby

Term 4 Rippa Rugby Cancelled.

Due to the uncertainty of when & if we will come out of Level 2, BOP Rugby Union has made the decision to CANCEL all Term 4 Rippa Rugby Modules.

Summer Basketball

Even though our Year 1 & 2’s have missed out playing in the Basketball Summer Series it doesn’t mean we aren’t training 🏀🏀

Training with Matua Jared will still happen every Wednesday and by next year our Juniors will be ready to bring their skills on to the court at ASB❤️

You can see on their faces how much fun they are all having😃
