2020 Activities and events
Although it hasn't received a lot of snow we have still been able to get up to the skifield a couple of times so far this year. The kids have been enjoying improving their skills on the lower slopes and our aim on our next day up is to introduce the senior's to snowboarding.
On Friday afternoons during Term 1 and 2, children have been engaging in a number of different activities with the older (Tuakana) children assisting and teaching the younger (Teina). So far the children have done rock painting, scrapbooking, rope tying, robotics, origami, baking and gardening and have lately been learning to use sewing machines, developing Lego skills, sanding down the Optimists ready for painting, and learning basketball skills. We take a break now in Term 3 as we aim to be up at Rainbow skifield each week but our Friday afternoon activities will start again in Term 4.
Junior Class Monster Book
Inspired by Quentin Blake's books and artwork the Juniors created their own masterpieces and collated them into a book - Monsters On The Move.
School is finally back after New Zealand entered Covid-19 Level 2. It was great to see all the kids catching up with their friends and being able to return to normal classroom learning.
Starting back at school was kicked off with some fun activities: tug of war, egg and spoon race, egg toss, sack race and a nature art project. Lots of laughs all round especially as it took a while for the kids to realise the eggs were actually hard boiled!
