Mad Monday

Luca:  I dressed up as Izobie. Doing all the art stuff was so much fun.

Kawana: On Mad Monday I painted my face and we did mad activities. One game was Angry Tag. Later we had a leaf fight. For the last activity we had to create where our character came from. Mine was an army base.

Hunter: On Mad Monday everyone dressed up. Annie dressed up like a creepy little girl.

Keeva: On Mad Monday, in the last week of the school term, everyone at Pukeokahu dressed up. My sister and I dressed up as Thing One and Thing Two. Mrs Casey was in her pyjamas and dressing gown. Hunter didn’t dress up, so Mrs Casey let him wear some of her clothes.

John Brandt

The school visited the grave of John Brandt to honour the memory of an ex Pukeokahu farmer who was at Le Quesnoy (one of the last battles in WW1). We laid a poppy and a flax cross.

Otupae Fund Raiser

We were given the opportunity to cater for an event hosted at Otupae Station. Many thanks to Gary and Mary Mead for the chance to fund raise and to the community for the amazing baking (the home made bread was a definite hit), pies and hot soup.


We went to Tangiwai. We learnt about lahars. We had to make sediment and put it on a wooden board to see if it would run down like a lahar. The teacher that was teaching us about the lahar was called Marlene.
