Last week was Peace Week! Mrs Ely and the Peer Mediators organized a huge range of activities for us to do. On Monday, we got to make friendship bracelets with Loom bands in the library or take part in a Chalk Art competition.
On Tuesday, we got to decorate a yummy cookie with some icing and yummy skittles.
On Wednesday, we were lucky that we had some parents coming to eat lunch with us as well as playing some board games in the library too. The teachers even had a game of netball against the Peer Mediators!
On Thursday, we had a Peer Mediator coming to the class to read a story to us.
On Friday, we had a balloon ceremony. Each class had some balloons to let go with a special peace message inside. Room 8 were the winners with 11 balloons!
We also had a special assembly to share what Peace meant to each class. We all had some really interesting ideas! We had some creative posters, pinwheels, iMovies, a dance and even a rap!
We all had a fantastic week. A big thanks to Mrs Ely and the Peer Mediators for all the work in preparing the activities!

Last term, the Middle and Senior School were lucky enough to get 7 weeks of swimming lessons at Lloyd Elsmore. Each lesson was half an hour. All the children were split into 3 groups based on their ability levels. The instructors covered a range of skills, including freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke, as well as kicking, floating and correct arm movements for each style. The children also did some water safety activities using life jackets and noodles as life saving tools! Check out some of the photos below.

On Wednesday 4th of June, the Junior School had a visit from a Priate called Captain Jack Pukeko. Our topic is called "Can you find the hidden treasure?". We will be learning lots about pirates, treasure, discovering hidden messages, following clues and also learning about treasures of our own.
We all enjoyed the visit from Captain Jack Pukeko. He told some funny jokes, did some great magic and got us all excited about our new topic.
