Time flies when you’re having fun.

School continues to be busy busy.

Unfortunately, we had to postpone our raft trip until a later stage due to significant river levels. We hope we can make this happen later in the year.

We are very excited to be heading away next week to Bay of Plenty for our camp with Papanui Junction. Mrs Revell and I have worked together to create a fun week of activities in, on and around the water. Thankfully the weather is looking amazing.

Last week (28th February) we spent the day at the Mangaweka Campground learning about weeds and weed control. The EnviroSchool team and their Horizons friends facilitated an amazing day for our tamariki that was hands on, fun and engaging. It’s awesome to see so many of our local schools now on the EnviroSchool waka.

On Friday we have our Rural School’s Swimming Sports and we are excited for the tamariki to share what they’ve mastered this term. We have seen massive shifts in swimming skills since we started back this year, with some children now able to get their feet of the ground and float, others are starting to master freestyle and backstroke and our older ones have refined their skills while also mastering the art of diving.

Finally…earlier this term we came up with Tikanga o Pukeokahu which is a list of the right way to be at our school. Below is the tikanga our tamariki agreed upon. We are working closely with the tamariki to ensure our tikanga are upheld within our kura.

Watch this space for our camp download later in the month.

Kia pai te rā!
