Beach Trip

Whole School Beach Trip – Castlecliff Beach Reserve

To support our school wide inquiry this term around water safety and in conjunction with Sea Week the whole school will be going on a trip to Castlecliff Beach Reserve, Duncan Pavilion, on Tuesday 3rd of March 2015.

We are lucky enough to have the Department of Conservation, Whanganui Regional Museum, Sarjeant Gallery and the Castlecliff Coastcare on board.

The children will rotate around 7 educational games and activities followed by a beach clean up.

Please ensure you child is at school by 8:55,  as we will be leaving by bus at 9:10am.

To ensure your child enjoys their experience please ensure they have a healthy packed lunch (Morning to be included in their lunchbox) and a  large bottle of water.  Children will need to wear covered in footwear and their school sweatshirt in case the weather changes.

In order for this trip to be successful we require parent support to accompany us on this excursion.  If you are able to support your child’s class for the day please fill in the required area on the below consent form.

The Seniors go to town!

The Senior Syndicate’s Inquiry focus this term has been “Whats in a Name?”. A trip to town started at the Whanganui Museum where Margie Beautrais showed the children a Powerpoint presentation highlighting historic spots around Wanganui and explaining how they were named and why. Then, armed with a quiz booklet, the students went “walkabout” searching for answers. Some did manage to get sidetracked by Tram Number 12 for awhile. Four classes were involved – the photographer was attached to a group but did try to catch up with some other groups as well!

Kids for Kids Concert

Last Wednesday our choir went to the Memorial Hall to sing with Jackie Clarke.  They represented our school with pride and sang their hearts out.  We were so proud of their efforts.  Jackie got Kyle up on his feet and had a chat to him in front of the audience.
