Check out our fantastic writing

I am moving to a new school and Whaea Laura is going to be sad and my best friend.
I will miss Charlie Horse and Miss Sheep. I will be shy when I am new at school. When I am not new I will be used to my friends. I will have fun with my new friend.
By Peace Tautala

I like going to school because you get to be brainy and the only thing I like to do is learn. I like Charlie horse because you can take him home and you can play with him. I like Peace because he always helps me. I like Euta because he always plays with me.

Samoan Week

We had so much fun during Samoan Language week. We loved learning how to march and we even won the marching competition! We liked going to Mr Malo in his Samoan fale where we learnt about lots of different Samoan things. Here are some cool photos we took on Samoan Independence Day where we all dressed up in our Samoan clothes and had yummy kai.

Get Set GO!

On Thursday we took a bus into Wellington to the ASB sports hall and did some really cool activities. We got to play lots of different games that taught us different skills for playing sport. We did throwing and catching and lots of running around. There were lots of other schools there too and we got to a cool orange T-shirt to keep and a vortex to practise our throwing with. It was so much fun we wish we could have stayed there all day!

Discovery Time

In discovery time we have been learning to share we each other. We have played with the lego. We picked some tomatoes from the garden and put them on some bread to make some sandwiches, we also put on some sprinkles - it was tasty. Taranaki likes to play with the snakes and ladders game.

Pataka Trip

We went to Pataka to learn about how Porirua has changed. We had lots of fun.. We made some houses to put on the hills to show how Porirua has changed from farmland and bush to houses. We saw an exhibition with lots of money in it , someone very clever had folded the money into lots of different things.
