Home-Our school history

Students 2010

We have no school uniforms now. The school houses have started again because Whaea Sue talked about them. At morning tea we have 5+ fruit a day. Everyone gets a piece of fruit like an apple, a banana, a tomato, an orange, sometimes pineapple, a cucumber or a carrot.

We have Duffy books for good behaviour and we have assemblies in the hall to share our work and get certificates. New entrant students get a bookbag when they are new at school.

Visitors come to school like Harold the giraffe, the fire truck, SPCA people, the police, and bands. We have school community events like the hāngī, Christmas concerts, and dances.

In school we can use computers for maths and reading activities, publishing, and for searching topics. We do lots of artwork like painting, clay modelling, and display work.

We can learn other languages like French and Japanese. There’s a rumaki class that learn Māori. We do dancing like line-dancing and jump jam. Some classes can look after the goldfish.

.

We sing and make musical instruments.

On Thursdays year 7 and 8 students travel by bus to Titahi Bay Intermediate to take part in technicraft, which involves textiles, and cooking.

We usually play some of these games at interval and lunch times - touch rugby, four square, bat down, capture the flag, king ball, and dodge ball.

We go to events with other schools like the Artsplash concert, Artsplash choir, concerts at other schools, and also interschool sports like cross country.
