Tennis Skills

We are having tennis skills each week (Tuesday afternoons) until the end of term 3.  Kooli comes to school to work with us.  We had lots of fun learning how to hold our rackets and how to control our tennis balls.

World Cafe

Last week the Junior Team enjoyed a World Cafe as part of our Olympics topic this term.  We were lucky to have such generous parents and grandparents to make and serve us delicious treats from all over the world.  There were tasty treats from the Netherlands, Indonesia, Samoa, the Philippines, the Solomon Islands, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, India and Japan.  We had a lot of fun trying all of the different foods and identifying flags!

Week 5 Junior School Reminders

World Café
On Thursday morning the junior school students  (Piwakawaka/Kakapo/Pukeko/Tui) will be given the opportunity to try some delicious foods from different countries around the world.  This world café is related to our Olympics topic this term.  We are fortunate to have tasty treats being prepared by some of our parent community (from Indonesia, Netherlands, Brazil, Samoa to name a few).  The students should still bring their usual play lunch and lunch to eat.  The food offered will be small samples.  The students do not have to try any food they do not wish to eat.  Teachers are very aware of food allergies.  We have a list of ingredients for each recipe and will be mindful of which students need monitoring.  Please come and talk to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

Daffodil Day

On Friday we are celebrating Daffodil Day and the student council is raising money for the Cancer Society.  The students have been asked to wear something yellow (T shirt, hair ribbons, socks or whatever you can find).  The students need to bring a gold coin for our coin trail.  We will have a special liturgy on Friday morning.
