ANZAC Day

We have been finding out about the importance and meaning of ANZAC Day to us as New Zealanders.
In particular, we have been using the recently published book, The Red Poppy by David Hill.

We have also been analysing the poetry of 
John McCrae - the Canadian who wrote the world's most used remembrance poem, In  Flanders Fields.

Poo-Chi

Tena koutou. 
Meet my new friend, Poo-Chi. She's only six months old and is a pure-bred Yorkshire Terrier.
At the moment, Poo-Chi is 1.8kg and about 18cm tall. She is small but full of fun!

Hello from Mrs Wong

Hello everybody - tena kouotu.


I hope that you are all enjoying the holiday with your families and didn't eat toooooo many Easter eggs!


There are two things which I would like you all to do during the break:
1. Talk to your grandparents 
             and/or older family members.
             > Ask them to tell you 
                    what they know/remember 
                                    about the World War/s. 
 ANZAC Day is coming up in the first week back, it would be good to be able to share our family histories.


                        > Ask them about 
                                their childhood and school days.
What they did in the weekends, after school, the holidays; toys; how did they get to school; what was school like then; what do they especially remember about their grandparents?
Our next topic/theme is celebrating history and looking particularly towards our school and community as next year HNP will be 150 years old.


2. The second 'thing' is very minor! 
Please would you collect/save the plastic top from aerosol spray cans? 
Any colour - preferably a reasonable size rather than a deodorant size.
I'm not telling you what these are for.... yet!


Take care and have fun! BUT ... A-B-C !!!     :)

Principal's Awards for Week 10, Term 1


 Tena koutou, everybody!
I have just realised that I didn't get somebody to write a new post with our principal's dudes for the last week of term. 
                   Woops!                    Sorry!                    ~ R



And the recipients were.....
                      
       Juan 
    and 
         Max.


Both earned their certificates for all of the hard work which they have put in to helping ALL of us with our ICT challenges throughout the term.   
       We have sincerely appreciated 
             their personal knowledge, helpfulness 
                                    AND patience.

Mavi's interesting research

By Mavi

Hello Alex here


Hi this is me and my little  sister Hetty with our Grandparents

Hello Alex here again - about my dog

This is my dog called Poppy - she is playing around with a huge stick! 
Alex shared with us about how special Poppy is.
She is very special because they got her from the SPCA in Auckland. Then the family took her back to England with them when they moved back there. When Alex and his family moved backt to New Zealand to live, Poppy came, too, in an aeroplane - but not with them in the seats!
