Week 8 Term 4

On Wednesday we had our first swim of the summer. Even though there was a lot of shivering going on we are all very keen to swim again in week 9 and wanted to stay in for longer. This is how we ended our swimming session. Thanks Maree for making the video.
 We had more parents come in to read this week, including our first dad! Thank you Charlie for choosing such a lovely Kiwi Christmas story for your dad to share.

Can you spot which Room 11 friend got a good work certificate in Kowhai assembly this week?

  2. Hello Tracy,

    I have been reading TJ's report and can see such fantastic progress - which is wonderful. He is developing in to a curious little boy who is interested in finding our new things. This is because you have fostered his love of learning with all your hard work. The children in your class have been very lucky to have had your for their teacher this year. I hope you have a very restful and happy Christmas.
    Yours Paul Betteridge - England
