We had a very special assembly today to farewell both staff and students. We listened to a stirring haka as the Year 8 students entered. This was followed by speeches, items from the choir and kapa haka group and the presentation of the awards. It was a memorable occasion.

The morning started off cold but that didn't stop us having a wonderful time. We started with relay games, followed by the water slide, the swimming pool, the bouncy castle, a game of colours plus a barbecue lunch. Thank you Mr Marshall for a great day!

It's amazing how hands can become a Christmas tree. Today we made a huge collection of green hand shapes and assembled them into a Christmas tree. We then added Christmas lights, tinsel and a bright star on the top. When the lights were turned on we burst spontaneously into singing Christmas songs.

A quick and easy experiment today. We combined vinegar and baking soda and then quickly placed a balloon over the top of the bottle. As the carbon dioxide was created, it expanded into the balloon and the balloon inflated. Cause and effect!
Yesterday we got a long skipping rope and started doing skipping. We did a challenge to see who was the last person doing skipping. It looked very hard for some people but they did very well.We had heaps of people and they were amazing. Well done you guys. I'm very proud of you.

The first time we tried this experiment some of the corks had cracks in them so the carbon dioxide escaped and there was no explosion. We decided to do the experiment again.Wearing safety glasses children pushed the corks into the bottles and the explosions were very pleasing!
