Parachute fun with Nicole from 'No Child Left Inside'.



Plastic Business

Kōtuku have been researching how plastic affects our environment and what we can do about it. We plan to gift each school family a 'kit' of items that eliminate the use of plastic. Here are some action shots of our productivity.

Bubble Art

This afternoon with our tuakana teina time we did a collaborative piece of art. We created bubbles because we try to keep everybody's bubble afloat rather than burst them.

String Shapes

Today we made shapes out of string. We got put into groups of three or four,  then we got a piece of paper with some shapes we had to try to make. Some of the shapes were a square, cube and a star. The 3D  shapes were hard and some of the group did not complete them.

Hula Hoop Activity NCLI

Today we had No Child Left Inside but it was raining so we did it inside. We did a really cool activity where you had to make a hula hoop house and crawl through it. Also we made a huge tower with three on top of each other.

And here are a few photos of our Rugby team that hit the ground running at a Year 7/8 tournament this week. Plenty of smiles and enthusiasm for doing it all over again next year. That's a winning effort!

Art with ATET

Year 8s working with Jane Henderson from ATET to make screenprints. These will be used to create some cloth bags as part of the 'Boomerang' Project which aims to reduce the use of plastic bags.
