Bits and bobs from the past few weeks

Recycling Launch Assembly:
Last week Reremoana hosted a recycling launch assembly. We had recycling experts visit us from all around the world to teach how to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The assembly was a little bit different because there were cameras everywhere! Stayed tuned to see a video about this assembly in the coming weeks. The Recycling Brigade Captains also got to participate in a workshop where they made two items out of recycled plastic. Can you spot Shivali, Kaja and Minka?

Samoan Language Week:
A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have a visit from our neighbours at Greenmeadows Intermediate. They brought their Samoan and Chinese Fan Dance groups along to perform for us. The performances were spectacular! Yandri and Zoe presented a koha to one of their lead performers.

There are several students in Room 11 who associate strongly with their Samoan Culture. Dylan's mum, Jennie, came along to visit us during Samoan Language Week. She taught us a Sasa, a song called Savalivali and told us stories about what it's like in Samoa. Thanks for coming, Mrs Tusani!

Wowee, the standard of speeches were very high this year. Well done to everyone who was brave enough to present their speech in front of our whole class. We had a few "stand out" children who got to present their speeches again before we chose the finalists.

A special well done to Tayla Y (2nd Place, Year 3s), Jade (3rd Place Year 3s), Ryan L and Sonia who all competed in the Year 2/3/4 Speech Finals.

PB4L Certificate Winners:
Every Monday morning the Pukeko Team get together for an assembly where Mrs Van Zyl introduces the weekly PB4L focus. During this time the teachers present certificates for students who have demonstrated the previous week's positive behaviour focus. Here are some of our certificate winners so far this term:

Baking in Room 11:
As a reward for some very positive behaviour happening in Room 11,  we had a special baking day in Room 11. We made a "Miss-Chalmers-favourite" - cream horns. A big thanks to Mrs Gregory and Mrs Airs who helped to make them  (they are much better bakers than Miss Chalmers!)
