Hair spray fumes hung in the air like a dense mist in a Brazilian rainforest.  Hair and makeup sparkled in the dazzling lights. Ecstatic voices echoed throughout the halls. This was DanceNZMade! Congratulations to all the dancers and organisers. It was an extremely successful event for all involved.

Ngā mihi nui

Children learn more when their parents and whanau are interested and involved.

There are many things we can do to support our children’s learning in mathematics by using the everyday experiences and resources that we find around the home.

One way to support maths learning is to notice the maths all around us.

Raising our children’s, and our own, awareness of maths helps them understand that it’s part of how the world is put together and how we can understand it.

This can be as easy as noticing the odd and even numbers on letterboxes or looking for different shapes when we’re shopping like cubes, cylinders or spheres…… click here to go to site.

IMG_4926Well it’s taken a long time but we finally managed to unveil the newest mural and officially open our arts building, after a long period of retentions (items that were incomplete under the contract). In the morning Brian and Shirley Pegler, led members of the Christian Religious Education team, staff and House Group Leaders, in a formal blessing of our new space. In the afternoon, former students from Ross and Carncot, joined us to unveil the beautiful mural, to share in some speeches and to enjoy our band in action.  Staff Member and musician, Nic, joined band member, Serena, in cutting the ribbon, and in doing so officially declaring the space open!

Here is a link to the Manawatu Standard’s article and photo.
