Kereru's Student Council Representative-Lydia

Well done to Lydia for being elected our representative on the student council.
Students who wanted to try out for the position presented a short speech to the class, outlining their skills and why they wanted to be on the school council. We then had a secret vote and Lydia was elected.
Well done to all of you who put yourself forward to represent Kereru Class. It's great to see such enthusiastic people willing to work hard to make our fantastic school even better :)
Lydia is prepared for her first Council meeting.

Kereru Stars!

Well done to Hannah and Evie!
Hannah received our class award for her mature and responsible attitude as well as her great listening skills-wow!
Evie received the Charism-'Dare to Care' award for her caring nature and helping out her classmates with their work. 
You are both Kereru Stars!

Swimming Lessons

Yay we are swimming! This week we went swimming at the ASB pool from Monday to Friday. On the first day of swimming we were all excited because we wanted to see what group we were going to be in. When some of us hopped into the lane pool we thought it was cold. Others were in the warmer pool. We learnt new ways and techniques of swimming. It was lots fun and now we are all prepared for swimming sports.

Volleyball Fun

This afternoon we were lucky enough to have Allan Brodie from Volleyball Nelson come in and teach us a few volleyball skills. We went to Salisbury Gym and had a great time trying to spike, serve and block.

Thank you very much to Luke's mum for donating hand sanitiser and desk wipes (essential to every classroom!)
