Our Old, New Blog

Kia ora whānau, 
This blog has been inactive for akomanga waru (room 8) since 2017 as for the last 2 years rooms 8 & 9 have been working as a hub. In 2020, we returned to an individual class blog. Enjoy being reading our new (old) blog.

Cross Country 2017

What a beautiful day to run cross country. Lots of excited kids, nervous kids but most of all kids with a fantastic attitude. I was very proud of all the tamariki that achieved their own personal goals. Great to see everybody cheering and supporting their friends.

An absolutely terrible night to be playing netball. The rain was teeming down and it was cold. These girls just got stuck in and played the game. Great attitudes and netball skills.

Photo Day - Kapa Haka

It was a really cold day and all the tamariki in the Kapa Haka roopu were waiting patiently to get their photo taken. We are such a large group this year. Here are a couple of shots while we were waiting.
