'Where I Am From' Poems

Thank you to these three students for allowing us to publish their fantastic 'Where I am From' poems which were part of last weeks homework. 
I was very impressed by the high standard of Kereru student's work. 

I am from Runnymede where they signed the Magna Carta.
From Nannies baking, flowers on the dinner table.
I am from 'If it's worth doing its worth doing well'
From devouring fancy birthday cakes.
I am from primary school.
A family of 5 and friends from around the globe.
I am from being happy and smiling all day.
I am from a box high up in the cupboard with newspapers from the day I was born,
From making snow angels in the crisp fresh snow.
By Isla

I am from meat cooking, noodles sizzling.
 I am from mud and dirt the track.
I am from brother and sister playing outside.
I am from overseas and deep down South.
I am from 'The face on you could turn milk sour'.
I am from stories of great ancestors.
I am from boxes of cute old photos and videos.
From tasteful meat and chewy noodles.
I am from a small growing community.
By Lily 

I am from Nelson and Wellington.
I am from mum and dad, nana, uncle, poppa and aunty.
I am from fudge cake, ambrosia and raspberries.
I am from mum's perfume and the park next door.
I am from 'what I get I get and I don't get upset'.
I am from my favourite things and I shake it off.
I am from the pool and Richmond Mall.
I love you the mostest and the morest.

Happy Birthday!

🎉  Sean and Missy both celebrated their 9th birthday this week 🎉 
Congratulations! 😀

Morning Meeting

A couple of times a week we have morning meeting. 
We close our eyes and take a deep breath in then let it out.
 We think of something we did well yesterday then think of something we'll do better today.
We share our feelings and greetings like Kia ora.
 Morning meeting helps us be confident to talk to each other in a big group. 
Here are some photos.

Week One-Done!

Well we got through the first three days unscathed! What a fabulous group of students in Kereru Class this year! The students have been bombarded with information, new routines (school and class) and also new people in their classroom and they have coped wonderfully.
We extend a very warm Kereru welcome to Missy and Jorja who have joined us at St Pauls this year.
Here are a few snaps of our first few days 👀
Enjoy your long weekend!
