Chess Masters

Wow! Well done to all our brilliant chess players, who attended the Hibiscus Coast Chess Tournament - you played strongly and showed wonderful sporting behaviour - win, lose or draw!

Nailbiting tension as the tournament drew to a close...

Congratulations, Ananda! Tournament Champion!

Tiritiri Matangi

What a beautiful day to visit this wonderful island sanctuary, 
right here on our doorstep!

Not even the biggest wetapunga on the island!

We spotted so many different birds!

We picked up any rubbish we found on the beach.

Happy Holidays!

Wow! We finished the term in sp-egg-tacular fashion...

This morning we had a whole school technology challenge, where our groups had to make the tallest freestanding poppy they could using only 20 sheets of newspaper and some red and black paper for the flower.

This was followed by the last Y6 sausage sizzle of the year. Thank you to everyone who has supplied sausages, cooked or bought  and eaten the sausages!

Finally, we made Easter Bunny baskets and filled them with chocolate eggs.

Well done on a great term, Parera Class - have a wonderful break and get ready for another busy term starting in two weeks!!!!

Not Faulty Towers

The Pareras worked in small teams today to see who could build the tallest, steadiest tower that would safely hold a basketball for at least 20 seconds....and they only had newspaper and stickytape to work with!!

Well done to our winning team of Atia, Sam and Micah, with a stable and impressive 73cm construction.

We discovered that planning, teamwork and determined perseverance were crucial to being successful.

Today's the day the Teddy Bears have their Picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears, 
The little teddy bears are having a wonderful time today...

And so are all the children! What a lovely time we had in school with our teddies, turtles, dogs, seals and all other cuddly toys - and, in the middle of all that fun, we also raised money for the Auckland City Mission.

Thank you, Year 6, for the lovely morning tea you provided!

It's fun to stay at the....


The YMCA, Shakespear Park, that is!

Our annual camp was filled with fun, excitement, new adventures and teamwork. Students pushed themselves to climb walls, navigate rocky coastlines, cook pancakes on camping stoves and kayak. They also raced around to find markers, played games over UHF radios, mountainboarded and learned archery skills. Every student also gained their Safe Boating certificate by demonstrating knowledge of how to plan a journey and how to survive in the water in case of emergency.
