Taking flight with feathers and flames.

Deep breaths with Mangroves and Matai.

Swimming the depths with Tuna and Inanga.

Living or not, we don’t mind

We like exploring the earth – of ALL kinds.

Spring is in the air!  Yes, it is only July but already the birds are courting, the lambs are frolicking in the grassy fields and the daffodils are in flower – so if we read the environment, Spring is definitely near.  As the poem suggests, EarthEd will be exploring a variety of different aspects throughout the year levels and whenever possible, making most of the best classroom ever – the environment.  I will be trying to get the tamariki out on trips to emphasize our learning so send all your wishes to Tama Te Ra to shine upon us.  My apologies to those parents who offered assistance with last terms trips that did not come to fruition.  There were a number of road blocks but I am hoping for more success this term.

The Kete Aronui Class has now been moved to fortnightly Friday’s so the Year 7&8 students can continue attending with Technology falling on Monday’s.  An exciting new group of members will be joining us in August as we become part of the Tahi Bee Programme and get to home two beehives.  We also hope to complete our Drains to Harbour short video for sharing with the School and Community.  Keep your eyes out for us as we move about Ngunguru on our little missions of clearing rubbish and pulling weeds.
