Athletes all Around!

On Tuesday 5th of November, Puriri and Kauri went to Lovelock Track to compete and experience Athletics. It was a fun, eventful yet tiring and scorching hot day!

   
Many students from Room 24 competed so well and made sure to secure a placing in the top 3! Way to go Room 24. 

Well done to everyone that gave their all in each activity.

Special Guest at Owairaka

Our visitor this morning is an Olympian. 

What is something interesting you know about him?

Richie Patterson talked to us about the Olympic Values; Friendship, Excellence and Respect. 

He also talked about FAILURE. Failing is apart of our life and it is okay to fail. We learn from the things we don't get right straight away.

What is something you have failed at but were successful at, the next time you tried it?

Art Exhibition 2019

This term we have been working really hard to produce some amazing art for our 
School Art Exhibition.

Room 24 chose to learn about Pablo Picasso. He paints in a unique way and his art is very eccentric. He says that every child is an artist. We learned that there is no wrong way of creating art. Here are our creations:

  

Here is our collaborative piece we created as a class. It is made out of recycled materials.
It represents the sun and we are spreading our wings, dreaming big! The Sky's the Limit!


What did you think about the Art Exhibition?

New Zealand to name a Planet!

New Zealand, along with every other country, is being given an opportunity to come up with a name for an exoplanet - a planet outside our solar system - and its host star.

It's scientific name is HD21749 and the star is HD21749C.

If you could name the exoplanet, what would you name it?
