ANZAC Day

This week we have been focusing most of our time on ANZAC Day.
We have listened to lots of stories and had lots of discussions about what ANZAC Day mean for us.
One reading group wrote short reports on what the NZ nurses did in WW1. Other students made poppies for our display and we all wrote acrostic poems using the word'ANZAC' and did poppy paintings.
Here are some photos of some of the work we have been doing.

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back! It's Term 2!

I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday break with your families.
I have had a very relaxing holiday at home catching up on lots of little jobs that needed done around the house.
We have a very busy term ahead. We have lots of sports this term, a visit to the Suter Gallery to do some art, a visiting theatre group will be performing for us and we have two long weekends this term; ANZAC Day and Queen's Birthday!

On the first Friday back at school we will have a very special ANZAC service here at school.

Well done to Kereru Class kids for being awarded the Cleanest Class Award for Term One!

WW1 Dress Up

Today some of our students dressed up in clothing from the War period (both world wars)
We had a nurses uniform and a soldiers jacket.
The boys said the jacket was very scratchy and uncomfortable!
