Koru News Term 2 Week 8

Kia ora koutou,

Celebration Assembly

Wow! Koru team did a fantastic job performing at Celebration Assembly. They performed three waiata, and the boys, a haka. There were a lot of proud adults in the hall that day. The tamariki utilised all the Kete Values during the learning of the items and during the performance. The smiles afterwards said it all.

Learning Through Play

We are constantly impressed with the connections the tamariki make to the curriculum areas during Play Based Learning. Every day, they are extending their play and learning a lot along the way.
