Forest Lake School 2013
What a wonderful night Thursday, 12th September was. A big thank you to Whaea Bex and Whaea Jaimee for organising the event. The children produced some spectacular art pieces, and the wider community proved most generous with their donations for our mystery prizes and auction items. A special thank you to the parents / whanau and members off the wider community who came along to the auction. Without your support the evening would not have been the success it was.
'Wheels Day 2013' was a fantastic event thanks to our awesome KiwiCan team of Whaea Alex and Matua Terry. The students enjoyed themselves immensely as they took part in various activities. Check out some of the images from the event in the slideshow above.
The Zirka Circus Acrobats visited the school on Friday (5 April) and put on a very impressive performance. The Circus is running from 10 April to 5 May at the Base if you want to see more awesome acrobatics.
Friday the 5th of April also saw a group of our 'Student Leaders' participate in the Balloons Over Waikato Parade. A big thank you must go to Whaea Adrianne, Whaea Amy, the Kiwi Can team (Matua Terry, Whaea Pix and Whaea Alex) and the parent helpers. It was great to see how well the students represented the school. Well done to all the students who participated.
Friday, 5th April saw the Claw'd balloon and its crew visit the School. Unfortunately, the weather did not permit the
balloon to inflate. Despite this the students still had an absolute blast, as the pilot showed off the awesome power of
the burner that makes the balloon go. A big thank you to the staff, parents and 'Student Leaders' that rose at dawn to
ensure that breakfast was available for all.
Our Year 6-8 students had an awesome afternoon on Friday, 15 February with two representatives from the New Zealand Warriors NRL league team (Russell Packer - current 1st grade squad member and Kiwi representative & Jerry Seuseu - former Warrior & Kiwi international) and Kiwisport members taking them for some league skills. The students had a great time, with the opportunity to ask questions of Jerry & Russell and win prizes.
Friday, 15 February also provided the students the opportunity to view approximately 150 hot rods as they drove by the school. Many of the children and staff spent their lunch time at the school fence line as these awesome machines drove by, waving as they went.
