Pineconing

It is that time of the year again, when we start thinking about fund raising for the end of year camp and how we make lighting the fire easier.  Luckily both go hand in hand and we had a great day (between cyclones - Debbie & Cook) to visit Te Maunga farm and bag pine cones.  Now they are drying in the shed during the holidays before we advertise them early next term.



Getting some sun to help the drying process!

PB4L Dojo Event

Wow!  What an amazing day we had at the Dannevirke Domain for our end of term PB4L Dojo day.  The Year 8's were amazing leading each class around each of the events and the Year 7's got right into every event.  Great to see the boys being kids!

As usual we present students, who have earned them, with gold badges on the last day of term.  Today Chisora and Jayden received their Gold badge for Cultural and Tiaki and Huriwai received their Gold badges for Sport.  Congratulations to you all.

Which Day is it?

A problem for today

If it's not the day after Monday or the day before Monday, and it isn't Thursday tomorrow, and it wasn't Thursday yesterday, and the day after tomorrow isn't Saturday and the days before yesterday wasn't Saturday, what day is it?

Not many got this, can you?



Silhouette Soldiers

With ANZAC falling in the school holidays and we having been busy with other subjects we decided to spend the last day of term remember those soldiers who gave or risked their lives so our country had freedom.

We had a lot of fun producing the following pieces of art.  We were very persistent, especially when cutting out our silhouette soldiers.
