Our School Assembly


10 o'clock we had our school assembly at the school hall.  The whole school came to our class assembly, they were very noisy when they came into the school hall.
Once everybody was quiet, I welcomed everybody to our assembly and said "Please stand for the for the National Anthem."
We did heaps of acts and asked if all the syndicate teachers could present their certificates.  It was a long but fun assembly and I can't wait to do it again.

Waste Busters!

On Tuesday, we had a very special visitor from the Zero Waste Education.  Her name was Anouk and she came to talk to us all about recycling.  We learnt a lot of interesting facts like what aluminium was made from, what happens to rubbish once it gets to landfill.  We even shared with Anouk some of the facts that we knew from our plastic fantastic inquiry.  We did lots of hands on activities as well.  Have a look at our video to see what we did.

Payton and the Goodhue award.


As we come to the end of another term, Payton had a real good reason to smile today.
She was awarded the Goodhue trophy, this is awarded to students who show integrity and honesty throughout the term.  Well done Payton! We are all very proud of you.

Whakatau Wairua - Te Hokinga Mai


This week Kawakawa Primary School hosted a very special occasion in our Marae Tumanako.
On Thursday and Friday whanau from around the community came with photos of their loved ones to hang on the wall of our whare nui.  These photos are of our beloved past pupils and staff members of the school who have passed away, one of them being Kailah's nanny.  We celebrated this special occasion with waiata, karakia, hangi and even some yummy steam pudding.  Thank you to all our whanau who brought their beautiful photos for our Marae.

Tuna and Takakau week.

Our school has been learning about Tuna and Takakau for the past few weeks and all week the children of Kawakawa Primary have been catching Tuna and bringing them in to school to be weighed and measured.  Alyssa and her sister Talia caught this beauty together, however Alyssa was not very keen to hold the tuna for photos.  Well done girls!

Learning new tools

  

Hello my name is Jackie.  Today I learned how to use Kizoa.  It was easy to take the pictures, it was hard to learn how everything worked on chromebook at first but with more practice it got easier.
My next step is to find other ways to use Kizoa.
