Wow..we had an extremely motivating visit by the New Zealand famous published author Jan Goldie. She spoke to us all about the writing process, what it means to be an author and introduced us to her published books. Jan’s latest is called Brave’s Journey, and we were hooked after she read an exciting and attention grabbing, part of this.
Jan talked us through a great activity with the pod.. World building. We all created our own worlds, dimensions and atmospheres that we could develop further. .
Engagement and focus was high! We think we have many budding authors among us!
Thank you Jan, you were inspirational!

Our tamariki are working in groups to help them recognise safe and unsafe situations with confidence. Please have a chat with your child about some of these scenerios. This is a really important unit of work, and we feel that our class is gaining alot of insight into keeping themselves safe.
We are so impressed to hear that our super mathematicians are wanting more sites to practise their strategies on… Check out the homework page… an amazing link has been added
Please pop along to our camp meeting on Tuesday night at 5pm, in room 13 & 14. You will find out everything you need to regarding camp. We would love the parent helpers to stay on longer as we go through a few extras. Its going to be an amazing experience for all the children!
