Welcome – Nau mai haere mai

Room 5 were surprised by a visit from Ken & Anna from More FM Taranaki 93.2 on Tuesday morning. Thank you to the lovely person who nominated the class for a box of Spudz apples which Ken & Anna delivered. While they were in class, they were treated to a rendition of our school waiata which was recorded. This was played on Wed morning radio and can also be heard via the rova app – (Choose More FM > select region: Taranaki)

Enviro Report By Sam Rowan and Angus O’Sullivan


Earthworms are so important for healthy soil. Earthworm tunnels bring in oxygen, drain water and create space for plant roots.

Did you know that earthworms only like food that was once alive and now dead? Like dead hair, dead insects, dead plants and much, much more.

Earthworms only like to live in dark and damp places. We got to make a worm farm to see how the earthworms move around and eat. We made it out of a 3 litre juice bottle. We created layers for the earthworm’s and made sure the soil was moist and dark. We put our mini worm farm in a black cotton bag.

After we made the worm farm we planted some plants in pots. Firstly we put some rich (filled with microbes) soil in a pot and then we put some seeds in it like kale and cauliflower. Sue gave us a rainbow mix of seeds to plant which are going to give us vegetables from the colours of the Rainbow.

PTA Meeting : Monday 11th at 7pm. All welcome.


Thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser.  $165.74 was made which will go towards camp.


You should have received your code for your school photos. 

If you haven’t received one, please contact Karen in the office as she has the master list of codes.


A huge thank you to the seniors, teachers and anyone else who helped out with the organising and running of the disco on Friday night.  It was a huge success and fun was had by all who attended.

Oscar from Room 2 – “I liked dressing up as a Police Officer and running around arresting people and I liked the chocolate bars.  I ate one.”

Leo from Room 3 – “I drunk L&P and brought 2 bags of lollies and a chocolate bar.  I wore neon orange shorts.  I had heaps of fun dancing with my friends.”

Parker from Room 3 – “I drunk a coke cola and I brought a zombie watch and a packet of M&M’s.  I wore my motocross shirt which was bright neon yellow and orange.”

Emelia Room 4 – “I liked to see all of the bright colours and I liked all of the food to”.

Isla Room 4 – “My favourite part was when I got to dance with my friends on stage.  I liked all of the sweets to.”
