Kapa Haka group

Ka mau te wehi!

GSNS walked into the hall and sat down excited-ly until the amazing extra large Kapa Haka group began
We sat there staring at the stage watching their magnificent performance
We felt inspired and awed by them.
Well done we are proud of you! and Good luck for Polyfest!

The giant's toothpaste

Mrs Forwood became a scientist creating a rather explosive pink creation! 
This made a very interesting motivation for writing!
 She left the recipe behind so if you'd like to try this for yourself 
(Have an adult watch you)- Send me a message:)

Puketeraki Marae visit

Below are some photos of our fabulous trip to Karitane.
Matua Brent did a terrific job of guiding around the marae.
We were officially welcomed during a powhiri ceremony and morning tea followed.
During the rest of the day we took turns at 3 of 4 diffeent activities: poi, flax (harakeke), traditional musical instruments (Nga Taonga Puoro) and long rakau - taiaha skills. The team leading us were very skilled and gracious hosts.

We had a wonderful day - Enjoy the photos
