Here it is nearly the end of the term already and it is hard to believe. All the classes are working really well and are settled into good work habits.
A reminder that school will be closed for the Easter break on Friday 25 March until it reopens on Wednesday 30 March 2016.
Kids Korner was recently audited by the Oscar foundation which was very successful. Many thanks to Mrs Allen for her sterling work getting things organised for the visit. We are now able to increase the numbers of children attending Kids Korner. A reminder that Kids Korner will be open during the holidays. Please contact Kirstie Miller on firstname.lastname@example.org or 09 5770198 to make a booking
This week we have had the pleasure of working with a chinese cultural group as part of our acknowledgement of the Chinese New Year. Year 5 students have had great fun working with this group.
Youthtown has been here again working with our students who love the activities that are presented to them as part of our Physical Education and Sport programme organised by Mrs Alicia Howard.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
One of our students was lucky enough to win a 2016 School Scholarship through NZCU. A presentation was made at an evening for family and friends in conjunction with Children’s Day.

Room 8 News
Room 8 are making a super start to the year. We have just started some creative writing, where we are writing a story from a picture and in maths we are learning that numbers can look many different ways. We have also be doing different science experiments. We like being scientists!
PJ Bear Story
P.J. Bear is in a cafe. He is having a big salad. He had chicken on his salad. It was too big for him so he did not eat it all up.

How does an egg float?
You put lots of salt into the water and mix it around. Then the egg floats to the top!
I am floating like a starfish.
