Kauri Team's Big SPLASH!

It was brilliant weather for our Kauri Team Big Splash today. The sun was shining and the pool was warm. Room 8 had a great time.

We all participated with enthusiasm and demonstrated good sportsmanship. Miss Green was very proud of our effort and a big congratulations to Luka who won the boys competitive races.

We won the seal race and came a close second in the team and flutterboard relays. 

The under and over whole team relay was particularly fun to do.

Well done to everyone who competed. A big thank you to all Kauri Team teachers who organised this great day!

Thank you Year 6 Leaders - Rainbows End Trip!

As a big thank you to our Year 6 leaders, we went to Rainbows End for the day. All of Room 8's Year 6 students went. We had such a great day. Miss Green and Mrs O'Shea were very impressed at how well we were able to manage ourselves as we tried out all the scary rides. Here are a few photos from the day.

Athletics 2018

Last week we had a fantastic day at Lovelock Track for the Year 3-6 Owairaka athletics day. Mrs Mudgeway did an amazing job organising our day (thank you) and all students put 100% effort into all the events. These included shot put, discus, high jump, long jump and really long track runs.

A special shout-out goes to Natalie, Alodia, Tana, Licha, Eli, Olly, Uati and Isaiah who all placed in their races. Well done!

A big thank you to Uati, Natalie, Alodia and Isaiah who made up the Room 8 relay team and came a very close second to Room 23. Great race team!

We survived Kauri Team Camp 2018!

Last week Room 8 had an awesome time at Camp with Room 7 and 18. 

Yes, it was a bit wet (heavy rain and lightning storms) and the water was a little cold (freezing actually) but we just put on another warm layer of clothing and got stuck in! 

A huge thank you to the parents and teachers who helped make our camp so special.  Check out the photo's below and our individual blogs.
