Kauri Whānau Term 2 Week 7: Weekly Update

Treemendous Makeover:

We are very much looking forward to Friday and Saturday of this week, when our Treemendous Makeover hits its climax. On Friday morning we will be learning with The Bug Man and The Shark Man. We will learn about the impact our actions have on the environment, as well as lots about our creepy crawly friends. 

We hope you have got our makeover written into your Saturday diary. If winter sport is also on your schedule, we would very much appreciate you dropping in before or after, to plant a shrub or two.  Just bring your shovel, spade or trowel. The makeover runs from 9 till 12, followed by a sausage sizzle. Do come along and join the fun.

High School Applications:

We are currently busy writing school reports. These will be sent home at the end of term 2, in time to be included, where required, with high school enrolments. If you require yours earlier, please make contact with your child's home-group teacher now. 

40 Hour Famine:

It's been fantastic hearing all the stories of tamariki participating in the 40 Hour Famine last weekend. Those who took part should be very proud of their efforts to help the children of South Sudan. The final step of the process is to collect in sponsorship money and return it to school. All books and money need to be back by Tuesday 3rd July at the absolute latest. 

Art Week:

Every term we have an art week, which we are currently in the middle of. We love to offer the children choice in their learning, and have offered them a choice of projects for this week, (well a second choice for many as painting was the preference of 90%). The children are busy painting animal faces, drawing morphed insects and creating Matariki kites.  Drop into our hub later in the term to see what they have created, on display. 


I am writing this blogpost at Hillview, listening to the children rehearse for next week's choir performances on Tuesday the 19th and Wednesday the 20th or June. Tickets are now available to purchase from the school office.
