For a few weeks in term one our whole school practiced and practiced for our special Fia Fia Night. Everyone in the school joined a different group to either sing, dance, or play. We put a lot of effort into doing the best we could, and on our last night of term we performed our items to our whanau and friends.
The weather was not kind to us, but we still got up on stage and performed. We were really proud of what we achieved.
Miss Hockly taught a small group of children to play the ukulele. On the night only half of them turned up (probably because it was so wet), but these are the 7 students who came.
It was a very fun evening, in spite of the rain. We’ll do it all again in two years time. YAY!!
WOW – it’s term two already!
Everybody came back to school, ready to learn new things.
And…like every new term, we began with an Immersion Assembly where the teachers from each team show the school what their team will be learning during the term.
Team One are going to be learning about simple machines (levers, pulleys, screws, inclined planes, wedges and the wheel and axle), and how they make work easier. Our teachers made a movie showing how they had to think up a solution to a problem. We think they did a great job, and we hope you enjoy their movie.

Today was a fabulous day! Not only was it Mufti and Wheels day, but we also got to get two Duffy Books each. We are so blessed! Thanks, Duffy Books. We love having new books to read with our families and friends.
Here are Aliana, Motu, Joseph, Ponyamon and Maung Maung with their bikes. Looking good, kids!
And here we are with our fabulous Duffy Books.
