This week’s message from the Principal:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,

We are half way through the term and classes are ticking along really well getting involved in their big question inquiry with a focus on ‘What is worth saving?’  There is a strong enviro-schools sustainability aspect to this work and Anna Robinson who is the enviro-schools visiting teacher from REAP is working closely with our teachers for this topic.  On Monday she worked with our senior classes looking at where the water that goes into storm water drains ends up.

The senior school are on a roll this week hosting interesting visitors with the Aqua Van making a trip to Goldfields from the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre yesterday.  This was a really hands on experience for our students.  I am sure these opportunities will shape the learning for these classes over the remainder of the term.

We are really looking forward to connecting with all the ECE and schools in Cromwell at our combined hui this evening.  This is a great opportunity to come and see the three schools Kapahaka performances before they head off to Polyfest in Invercargill or Dunedin. There will also be pre-school performances, a chance to chat about our children and shared kai.  All welcome!

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu
