Project Energise

Today we had Project Energise with Matua Bodean. Our focus for today was on co-operative games. We had to try and get the hula hoop around the circle as quick as we could using team work. One of the groups formed a chained and crawled through the hoop which was an interesting strategy. The other game we played was cross the river. We had to get our team across the river using only three plates. There were some very interesting strategies.

Chromebook Rollout

The Year 4 students from Team Awa had an awesome morning on Wednesday at the Chromebook Rollout. The day was made even more special by starting with a powhiri and welcoming visitors from Local and International Rotary.

The students were super excited to tear open their brown boxes to reveal their precious chromebook. The Year 3 students were also excited too as they got given a school chromebook that they will be using for the year.

We are all looking forward to working on our chromebooks and sharing our learning with everyone.
