Yeehaw!! The highlight of the term had to be how proud we were performing on stage in Radio Giga. We had such fun preparing and sharing our line dance with the audience. Check out slide show below! We even made it to the paper!
Matariki: Matariki is a the Maori New Year when you can see the cluster of seven stars often referred to as the Seven Sisters in our night sky. This is traditionally a time to share stories with each other, enjoy kai together, fly kites, weave and prepare for the year ahead. We celebrated this year by making and sharing fruit kebabs during our Literacy Hour sessions, weaving Matariki stars and even trying our hand at some origami stars. Matariki this year fell during our production time and it was a lovely time to come together as a community and celebrate the neat wee school that we are lucky to be part of.
Garden To Table:
Check out these photos of how industrious the Manuka Superstars are in the garden and in the kitchen. We always look forward to these sessions, and even a little bit of damp, cold weather isn't enough to hold us back! We tended the garden beds, folded origami envelopes to store seeds and collected worm casting and worm wee to make our soil better for our plants. We feasted on a delicious vegetable curry with flat bread and had a fabulous time with our friends and our helpers. Thank you to those who support this tasty programme!
