Tuis for Te taiao o tamaki at Te Oro

"Our tuis are all shiny.  They are beautiful," said Heilala.

Heilala is right.  Now that the children have finished decorating their tuis at Makerspace they do look beautiful and shiny just like real tuis.

Wheels and Whacky Hair Day

It was a different day at school when you don't have to wear school uniform and you can bring your bike or scooter to school.  The children enjoyed whizzing around the school at lunchtime.

Making Tuis and Eels at Makerspace

Team one has studied the animals, fish and bird life that live in and around the Omaru Creek.  This was the basis of a mural that was displayed at the Te taiao o tamaki at Te Oro in the last week of term one.  The children learnt the skills needed to complete the tuis and eels each week at Makerspace.

Munching ANZAC Biscuits

After our school clean up we came inside and read some books about ANZAC Day and munched some ANZAC biscuits.

"ANZAC biscuits are golden brown and delicious," said Jeremiah.

Serve For New Zealand

Today New Zealanders celebrate ANZAC Day.  As we honour those that have served us in previous wars, an initiative has asked New Zealanders to volunteer or undertake an act of service either on, or in the lead up to, ANZAC Day.  Prince Harry backed this initiative saying, "This initiative is a way for kiwis to remember the service of others in the past, and to continue that tradition of generosity and sacrifice in a practical way."
Point England school decided to serve our community by tidying up the local reserve on the last day of term but Cyclone Cook had other ideas.  We have postponed our task of service until next term but we did get out and tidy up our grounds.
