Visiting the New Entrant class always makes my day. Today they were busy creating with their chalk and the conversations and collaboration going on was lovely to hear and see. Such a great day to take the learning outside.

Yesterday we were lucky enough to have 3 Canterbury Rugby players come to school to do some volunteer work for us. Tamaiti Williams, Ngatungane Punivai and Isaiah Punavai came and helped some of our seniors get more of our posts ready for our Gaga Dodgeball pit, and then they met with all the students and gave out and signed a flag for each child who wanted one. Thanks to Claire from Ray White Morris & Co for organising this for us.
