School Camp Out

The day started with making our version of goody goody gumdrops ice cream. Here they are setting in the freezer.

This was followed by a bike ride to River Valley Lodge for a picnic and then a soak in the spa.

Back at school there was a ‘Puke’s got talent’ contest which was won by our birthday boy, Rickon.  (Thanks to our judges Peita and Brooke). After tea there was the ice cream we had made in the morning followed by Rickon’s birthday cake. Next on the programme was movies and then possibly a bit of spotlighting…..                                           All photos remain the property of Pukeokahu School

Welcome to Our Creepy School

Strange things happened at Pukeokahu School today.

Be prepared to be scared out of your minds.


A creepy skeleton was eating people. It was eating brains. He ate 1000 brains.

He went to a home to eat more brains and more brains and more brains.

Zombie aka Hunter


On halloween there was a killer clown. Everyone was

going trick or treating. One kid arrived.

“Trick or treat”

Next minute the door opened by itself. Then the kid walked in side and said “hello.”

A clown came out the corner and blew the kid’s brains out. The clown shot him with a shotgun. The Skeleton aka Kawana


The Day of the Dead.

Most of the  children from Pukeokahu School weren’t there, when Victoria had to go to a Monster Conference. Hopefully I will not get eaten by a zombie……………..

One hour later I got bitten by a zombie……..

I turned into a zombie and went back to school. I just came when my sister bit my arm off. I tried to eat her brains for payback. I became terrified. I should have just gone back home. Zombie aka Tor


On a scary Halloween everybody was spooky. I am a killer dog. I was eyeing up everyone. But mostly Tor. I bit her arm off and now I want her foot. I want everybody’s blood to drink, except Isla because she made me. The Killer Dog aka Pippa


On the day of the dead everyone was a monster. Their bodies were gone. The monsters took over. At the school there were only the monsters left……

The girl that I dressed up as is a monster high girl, Venus McFlytrap.   Keeva aka Venus McFlytrap


Everyone is out and about. It’s time to scare. All the children are out trick or treating and I am ready to scare everyone… then a little kid runs up to me and  says, “ You have a good costume,”

I said “This isn’t a costume so you better RUN.”

The little girl ran but I caught her and ate  her. Then I caught all the delicious little children and took them back to hell to eat. Mahahahaha. Skeleton aka Annie.


It was a creepy halloween morning in Pukeokahu. There was a bloodthirsty, scary unicorn. A visitor came and knocked on the door.


The vicious teacher said,

“Come innnn.”

A creepy killer clown came in and said,


Suddenly the creepy killer clown ran towards the children.

The bloodthirsty, scary unicorn used her unicorn powers and blasted the killer clown away. Then the unicorn became more evil then ever and devoured the little children…. one by one.

The unicorn akaTiana 


Deep in the haunted country of Pukeokahu school, monsters and the undead are lurking in the shadows waiting for their midnight feast, so beware all visitors, there monstrosity is scary. Halloween is here and they are all ready to kill. But hiding in the deepest darkest part of the school there is a killer clown, she knows when you are sleeping, she knows when it is time to kill! She is bloodthirsty and just waiting for some little children to come so she can devour them one by one!

Thank goodness Witchy Poo arrived to scare them off.

This morning  Pukeokahu School was doing some gardening. Tor and I were planting potatoes. It was very fun because we were to squishing the tyre.  Hunter


This morning Tiana and I planted beetroot, first we got the compost and poured it onto the soil. Then we dug a hole and planted the beetroot. After that we put the hose over it. Now we can use it for cooking

Deep into the Snow

On an early morning in September, the children and parents of Pukeokahu travelled to Whakapapa ski field, on Mt Ruapehu. We went straight to ski hire and grabbed the gear we needed. Our first stop was the learner’s slope for a quick practise while we were waiting for our instructors. Then we were split into two groups and went with our instructors for our lesson. We learnt lots. When we got cold we went to the cafe for a hot drink and food to warm up.

After we had finished skiing we climbed up to the Rotorua Ski hut, carrying our bags, and met the class from Birkdale school that was staying there too. Dinner was hot and SPICY, but really delicious. Dessert was waffles, maple syrup and ice cream.

Once we had eaten dessert we all relaxed in the lounge, Birkdale school invited us to join them in a game of charades.


After a good nights sleep,  we packed up our bags and headed back to Ohakune for lunch and then off to do some rock climbing. That was a really fun experience.

This ski trip was epic. Thanks Mrs Casey and parents.
