Week 8: 1 December

Kia ora & welcome to week 8.

Last week we worked hard on our Student-Led Conference Powtoons. The students engaged fully with this Web 2.0 tool and the results are fabulous.

To view the end results visit your child’s blog and take a look.

You can get to your child’s blog by going to the Room 1 Blog here and clicking on your child’s name in the sidebar.

Christmas Tree:

Last week we decorated a Christmas Tree for the “Heart of Gisborne” project. We worked with Room 6 on Friday to do this. All classes at Awapuni School joined in this fun project working in pairs.

No photos yet... you will have to go on a tree hunt in town and see what we did. Happy hunting!


Swimming is part of our curriculum just as reading, writing and mathematics is. Your child is expected to swim. Please ensure they bring their togs and towel to school.

New Zealand Water Safety Council have a target that all 12 year olds should be able to swim 200metres. We take this target seriously and work towards this goal at school in our swimming times.

Student-Led Conferences:

We have started practising for our conferences. Times for the conferences will be finalised early this week. A time slip to confirm the appointment for your child to hold their conference with you will be sent home later this week.

I look forward to seeing you at school on conference day!
