Athletics In Room 7 & 8 -

Hot Cross Buns, Hot Cross Buns

Today the Junior Team made hot cross buns. All of the children from Room 2 to Room 8 made hot cross buns. The children showed lots of collaborative learning with their tuakana (older students) helping their teina (younger students).  The children used their key competencies of managing self, relating to others and participating. Ka rawe koutou mo to mahi!

Special thanks to our parents Theresa Penfold and Karen Gilmore for your help. It was a production line with all the children helping to make the dough and then making their own hot cross bun.

Harakeke- Our School Whanau

 The harakeke (flax) plant represents the whānau (family) in Māori thought. The rito (shoot) is the child. It is protectively surrounded by the awhi rito (parents). The outside leaves represent the tūpuna (grandparents and ancestors). Room 8 & Room 7 are the ‘Rito’ and the ‘Awhi Rito’ are our parents and teachers. The grass are our school friends. On the harakeke rau (leaf) we shared how we can be kind and on the ‘Korari’ we shared how we can show respect.
