Week 2 Aspire to Succeed Awards

Well done to Connor Jorgenson and Eliza Shaikh for receiving the Aspire to Succeed award in our assembly last week.



On Friday we celebrated the Hindu festival Diwali - The Festival of Light. Everyone dressed up in beautiful outfits to celebrate the day. Take a look at Anjali, Saanchi and Raghav in their traditional outfits below. 

We also spent some time in class painting Diya, these are used as lights around the house to welcome festival spirits. 

Go to the website for more pictures of our fun filled day of celebrations. 


This week the kids took part in Kauri and Totara's EOTC Week! Activities included tent building, Survivor, Orienteering, Team building and many more fun things. Check out a couple of pictures below of our tent building and also take a look at the school website for more pictures.

Science - Borax crystals!

This was the equipment we needed to make our borax crystals:

First, we made a shape using a pipe cleaner.
Next, we tied a piece of string to our pipe cleaner shape.
Thirdly, we tied the other end of the string to a pencil so that our pipe cleaner shape could be suspended in the jar.
After that, we put 3 tablespoons of borax into our jars and filled them with boiling water.
Some of us added food colouring to give our crystals colour.
Next we stirred the boiling water until the borax had dissolved.
Finally we suspended our pipe cleaner shape in the jar and waited for the crystals to form.
