Keeping Up With Kereru: LAST WEEK OF 2017!

Welcome to the last week of the school year!

It has been another fantastic year in Kereru and that is thanks to all of you amazing kids.
It's been an absolute pleasure to be your teacher this year. 

For those of you moving on to Year 7, I wish you all the best and thank you all for being fantastic role models to the Year 5 students in our class.

Photography at The Suter

Last week Kereru Class went to The Suter to learn a little bit about photography.
The students looked at a photography exhibition and explored the questions— What is a photo? What does it tell us? How does it relate to the well-known saying ‘a picture tells a thousand words’
The students then went out into Queen's Gardens and focused on capturing the essence of the place through detail.
Here are some of the results.
Well done Kereru!
