New Zealand Shakeout

On Thursday we were part of the New Zealand Shake Out!

We practiced how to drop, cover and hold like Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor.
We read a story called "Ana's Jelly" where they talked about the earth being like jelly when there is an earthquake, so we got to make and eat jelly !
We made jelly in the staffroom with Bernadette.

Thanks Bernadette!

Thank you also to Laolao, Maraea, Kanye, Taniela, Mokotupu and Xavier for taking the fantastic photos of the jelly making.

Gorgeous gate

When we got to school on Monday there was a "big parcel" 

It covered our amazing new gate and school sign.

A Reverend came to bless the beautiful gate.

After the blessing a child from each of the rooms got to help "unwrap" the parcel.
Laie ( 3rd from the left ) waits to help

In our class, it was Laie was chosen because it was her mum Nina who painted the gate.                                                                                                             
After the gate was blessed we got to walk through it!

Then Nina told us what the painting all means. Nina went to Russell School when she was a little girl.
Wow ! We think it is an amazing gate and Nina is a great artist!

What a classy group !!
