TERM 1 NEWS:
BEACH FUN IN THE SUN
We began our year with a day at Kai Iwi beach as our topic for the term is 'Water'. We are an enviro school so our first activity was a beach clean-up
which generated loads of rubbish, and I must say it looked a lot better in the bins than on the beach!! After a great time on the wonderful new playground,
we set about making our boats from found materials. These boats came in all shapes and sizes and some students were very clever with their design and
the materials they used. The boat racing was a real laugh, with many of the littlest boats bobbing along the best on the water. Pukeko (my house group)
made a titanic of a boat which took up half the stream!!
The lifeguards were a great support to us by educating our students on surf safety, then they supervised an hour long swim in the sea. The water was glorious
and the waves provided tremendous fun for kids and adults alike. Although reluctant to leave the fun in the surf, it was time to replenish those hungry bodies.
After a yummy lunch and some fun on the playground, we were back on the beach in house groups creating our taniwha sculptures. Within a very
short time, four quite different but fantastic taniwhas evolved in the sand. Some were enormous, some breathed fire, and all were spectacularly adorned
with beach gems. Everyone agreed we'd had an awesome day - great weather, great activities, great beach, and great people enjoying it together.
WATER FUN NIGHT AND FAMILY BARBEQUE
To welcome new families to our school and have a fun night, we decided to use our Water topic as an excuse to go a bit mad. So, on Friday 8 February,
school families had a most enjoyable night socialising and having fun. Water fun activities included water balloons and water guns at the 'Waterfront', a surf
and slide, the school pool, and a dunking machine. One of our youngest pupils was the most accurate at dunking our very obliging principal, Alastair White.
It must have been a success as kids were wanting to do it all again real soon.
This term our students attend technology classes every Tuesday morning at Gonville school. They are really enjoying the sessions and have produced some
very yummy food (Eve, your Spanish Omelette was delicious), and wonderful creations in acrylic.
With such amazing weather we have been able to make maximum use of our school pool, with extra swimming lessons provided during lunchtimes and after school.
Students in Rooms 1,2,3, and Star are also receiving class swimming lessons from Splash Centre instructors through the Fundamental Skills programme. Our class
has been preparing for the West Country School's Swimming Sports to be held at the Splash Centre on Wednesday, 27 February. A week later, the stronger swimmers
will go on to compete in the Super 6 Swimming Sports on Monday 11 March.
