2018 Ski Trip - Porters

Aerodrome Visit 2018

Last week we headed off to Greymouth for a Visit to the Aerodrome as part of our Senior learning about Flight.

Cheryl the instructor, and Pete the Club Secretary hosted us for the morning with lots of information, a chance to sit in the aircraft, watching a local amphibious plane take off and land and a chance to put our aerodynamic knowledge to the test by making a paper plane that would fly the farthest.

We really appreciated the time Cheryl and Pete put into the visit - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Do any of you know what the Callsigns for the 3 aircraft are?  Let us know in the comments below.

Sticking With Pigs - Film Trailer


Last term we joined the NZReadaloud for Year 7-8 and the novel was Sticking with Pigs by Mary-anne Scott. One of our final tasks was to plan and produce a Film trailer. A big thanks to our class Teacher Aide Mr Maunder for your help! We'd definitely recommend reading the story - it's a good one!

Book Character Day 2018

Jess B and Kurt organised a Book Character Day for us at the end of Term 3.  It was the first book character day we have had at our school for at least 8 years, probably longer!!!

Everyone loved dressing up and I think we can safely say this is an event that everyone wants to have again next year!  We had games, a parade and prizes for dressing up the most like your character or putting in heaps of effort.

Can you pick who our characters are?  Can you spot our Teacher, Miss J???
Let us know in the comments section : )

Wheels Day 2018

At the end of last term some of our seniors were busy organising sustainable school events for us to enjoy as part of earning their Paparoa Ranger Badges (Gold, Silver or Bronze).
You can read more about the Badges on our class site HERE and click on the page at the top.

Wil organised a Wheels Day, and even though it was a bit damp, we still go out there and enjoyed the day!

Lucky for us a truck delivering sand for our long jump pit got stuck on our field and had to dump off most of the sand on the field.  It turns out it was an awesome place to build jumps!

Term 3


We hope you've all had a good break and got to do some things you enjoy!  We've got a bit on this term like skiing, Hockey, Netball, Bush skills, Wheels Day and a few other events as well.
We'd like to welcome Victor to our class as well.  Victor is a Year 7 and he's fitted right in (it was his birthday today too and he brought CAKE which is always a winner for us).
Let us know what things you're doing at your school this term.
