Happy Birthday!

Kereru kids were lurking in dark corners ready to spring a big 'Happy Birthday!' on me when I unlocked the door and switched on the classroom lights this morning.
I received some fab gifts and LOTS of lovely cards.
I am very blessed to have such a wonderful class of amazing kids (and equally amazing parents!)
Thank you!

Interschool Hockey Competition

Today most of our Year 5 students participated in the Yr 5/6 Interschool Hockey Competition at Saxton Hockey Fields.
We had a great day and our teams played really well. We had a lot of wins and draws.

What a fantastic effort from all of our teams!
Also, a BIG thank you to the parents who helped out on the day.
Here are some snaps from the day.....
