Kiwiana Disco Term 3

The three photos below show some of the neat ways students dressed up for our school disco in term three! Kiwiana theme was a huge success, kids looked great both in their outfits and with their killer moves on the dance floor! Was great to see some teachers and parents mingling on the dance floor also, showing the kids how it was done back in the day! Can't wait for term 4's disco, wonder what the theme will be?! 












School fun run and cross country 

Below are a few snaps of kids participating in the school fun run and cross country! Was so great to see all kids participating and doing their best! Teachers got involved with the teacher vs teacher run and the parents did their best to beat their kids as they raced them around the track. Overall a great day!












 







Today is support staff day! A huge thank you to our support staff who help make our school a great place to be!


 

 Pink Shirt Day

On Friday the 16th May Students and staff got into the spirit of pink as they celebrated forming positive relationships while saying no to bullying! Students completed activities in their room that taught them about friendship and sent a strong anti-bully message. Classes were also given the task of pink pimping out their rooms. A massive congratulations to Matai 4, Rimu 2, Kauri 1 and Kauri 4. They put in the effort and were the room winners of the day! As a reward for their efforts each class got a selection of boardgames to keep them entertained during wet lunch times and to continue to encourage the value of working together. For more photos of the event, check out your child's class page.
