Spencer Park TripThe Pōhutukawa Team is currently arranging an end of year trip to Spencer Park on Wednesday, 13 December 2017.
We need parent helpers who are willing to travel with us to and from Spencer Park and who are happy to be responsible for a small group of children while they are there. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher if you are interested in attending.
We will depart by bus at 9:00 AM and will return to school by 3:00 PM.
Students (and parent helpers) will need to bring:
- A water bottle
- A wide-brim hat
- Lunch and morning tea (no lunch orders on the day of their trip)
- A warm layer of clothing
- Comfortable shoes for walking
- Any medication they will need (e.g., inhalers for asthma)
A small contribution will be added to your school account to cover the cost of the bus.
Probability CarnivalRecently, the students in Team Pōhutukawa have been learning about probability. As part of this, the students designed and constructed games of chance. We then ran a mini carnival and tested out each other's games. Here are some photos of the carnival:
On Friday, we had a lot of fun dressing up as twins, triplets and quadruplets. Here are some photos of the event:
