Below is a map that Leni, James and Ryan T put together. It has where some of the main sites are, a heritage trail around them, an extra special track to a local legend! If you click on some of the sites, you can read some of the information we found out about.
We hope you like it! Feel free to leave any comments below if there is more information we can add.
P.S: Here is a link to the actual map if you want to look at it in a bit more detail.

The girls had a blast and even managed to bask in the unexpected sun! We won one of our games and came very close to winning the others. Well done girls!

Just a reminder about our learning celebration for Term 1. It starts at 1:45pm on Thursday afternoon in the community hall.
This term we are trying something new; we will start with some whole school celebrations, and then move into a learning expo run by the students. All students have chosen something they are particularly proud of this term and they will be sharing their learning at different points around the school. Parents and whanau are then invited to wander around and share/celebrate the different areas of learning being shared by all the students. We have students sharing their discovery/passion projects, electives, maths learning, inquiry and writing, Dragon's Den and more! It promises to be a learning extravaganza, come along and join in the fun!
See you all at 1:45 on Thursday.

Ni hao! Ni hao ma?
Our language focus for this week is following the theme of basic greetings: saying hello, asking how someone is and replying with a small range of possible answers (fine, tired, hungry, not well).
This is a good focus for home learning - can you teach these phrases in Te Reo and Mandarin to your family?

Kia ora koutou! Our langauge focus for this week is a basic greeting - saying hello and asking how someone is. We are also still practicing how to ask someone's name and say what your name is.
We have discovered that the best way to learn these phrases is to say them over and over through the week at home and at school.
Our goal is to be able say all of these phrases automatically by Friday. Keep practicing!

Fantastic job, Phoebe!
