On Friday 26th May, 2017 we had a Pink Shirt Day where students could wear pink clothes / shoes / hair / makeup and bring a gold coin to donate towards the anti-bullying campaign lead by the Mental Health Foundation. It was fantastic to see our school pink up, speak up, stand together, stop bullying.
To link to our Arts Inquiry question "WHO CAN BE AN ARTIST?" and our literacy learning, we are having a DRAMATIC DRESS-UP DAY tomorrow! This is a day where students can choose a particular decade / time period / era to come to school in. For example, they could come dressed in 80's / 20's / 60's style or even Medieval or Victorian times.

As part of the PE and Health Curriculum all year 5-8 students took part in the Have a Go sailing programme. This program was designed by Sailing New Zealand to give students the opportunity to experience the thrills & spills of sailing in a safe and well managed environment. Students had a fun day and learnt to take responsible risks.
The purpose is to expose senior students (Rm 3) to real life situations using a range of skills they learn in the different learning areas e.g. budgeting, planning, estimating, adding, subtracting, presenting etc.
