PJ Day making a positive difference!

Posted on 5 July 2018

Thanks for all the generous donations!!

We collected 45 pairs of pyjamas, 96 underpants, 6 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of slippers, 13 soft toys and $220 in cash. With the money, we bought another 31 pairs of pyjamas. 

Big thanks to The Warehouse - Hillcrest for supporting us and donating 15 extra pairs of pyjamas. 

Kellie from Foster Hope Waikato came in to collect them last Thursday and was blown away buy the generosity of our community. Well done everyone! The items we collected will help to make children who move into foster home situations feel loved and cared for!

Librarian Visits - By Hamoodi Room 11

Posted on 1 June 2018

Room 12 and Room 11 had some librarians come in and we got to test their brand new telescope. They let us view the sun and the black holes - not literally - in their view master. We also 

got to test their iPad controlled car. You 

can make it do so many things like a 360 and made it do an obstacle course.

Matariki

Posted on 28 May 2018

Matariki starts on the 15th of June. Matariki marks the coming of the Māori new year - and a signal for the time to plant new crops.
 
Matariki is an important time to celebrate our beautiful environment and show respect to our land and surroundings. 
 
Check out this video with tips on  how to spot the constellation in the sky!
 
We'd love to hear some Matariki spotting stories! 
 
 

  

Kia ara ake, kia tō a Matariki, kua haere ētahi mahi.  

Matariki by its rising and setting signalled the time to commence certain activities.

Ka puta Matariki ka rere Whanui.  

Matariki re-appears. Whanui starts its flight. Being the sign of the New Year!
