Art Exhibition

We all worked very hard to complete our art work for the school art exhibition. Students made a 3D sculpture out of the letters of their names, decorating them with colours, patterns, symbols and icons that represent themselves and their families.


























We had fun looking at the artwork created by other students, especially the  artwork created by our brothers and sisters! 




Cross Country

I was so proud of Room 16 students who put their best foot forward for school cross country

Corban Estate Arts Centre

We had a fun trip to Corban Estate Arts Centre on Monday,

Here is what the students in Room 16 had to say:
 The centre was nice and bright and colourful.


 It was very interesting, The teachers were very nice, the pastels were really easy to work with, the colours were bold and bright and we had lots of colours to choose from.


 I liked the way the teachers showed us how to use the pastels properly, the teachers very helpful and friendly. We would love to go back and try something new.


I liked hearing the history of the buildings and how the family started their business in West Auckland.

We made Dragon boats during our Mandarin lesson after hearing the story about how the dragon boat festival came about 



Our P.E. focus this term is Gymnastics and we are very fortunate to have lessons once a week in our school hall.







Music with Ms Laxton is always fun
