Pukeko Home learning reward

Today we held the home learning reward for the students in the Pukeko Hub that had met the home learning requirements for Term 1. To earn the home learning reward students are only allowed to miss one week of home learning.

Those that achieved this got to take part in a range of activities in the middle block today. Water relays, water slide, water fights, and a free time in the pool.

Duathlon - Pukeko Hub

The weather turned out perfect for our annual Triathlon. Due to the poor weather leading up we opted the turn the event into a Duathlon by removing the swim. All the kids were excited and had a great time scootering and running around the course. Thanks to Mr Garner and his team along with all the parents who helped out on the day to make it all happen.

Science fun

Some students were lucky enough to do a science experiment with Miss McPhail today. They watched the effect of adding vinegar to bicarbonate of soda.

Visual Mihi wall

Students in Room 1 have been developing their Visual Mihi to go along with their written mihi. Each week the students have completed one of the squares of their visual mihi.

The squares represent lots of things about them, e.g. a picture of them, a pukeko to show they are in the Pukeko Hub, a Patu to represent the Patu syndicate.

Other family members are also included as well as interests or items that they feel are important. Most are now on display along with the written Mihi in the cloak bay.
