Cultural Celebrations

Our inquiry for this term is centred around cultural celebrations and a variety of thinking skills. We are learning about weddings at the moment and incorporating Garners Multiple Intelligences.  This theory is based on everyone having strengths and weaknesses in different ways, and according to Garner he believes we have Nature Smarts, Body Smarts, Music Smarts, Word Smarts, Numeracy Smarts, Picture Smarts, Self Smarts and People Smarts.  Our class is working on identified strengths and weaknesses.

Speech finalists

An amazing range of speeches this year really made choosing our speech finalists difficult.  This exceptional bunch really put themselves out there, by opting in for the competitive division, speaking in front of their classes and then again in front of 7 classes.. thats about 210 children, plus about 20 adults.  What bravery and confidence! Well done all of you.

Special mention go to our winners Kayl Davis and Keilani Tiopira-Horne, both oozed passion and belief in their speeches, as well as writing, learning, and delivering them with spectacular excellence. Both Kayl and Keilani will represent their speeches at the next school hui.  Kayl will go on to the Mount Clusters section at the end of the term.  Good luck Kayl!
