Maths Week

We are celebrating Maths Week by exploring various Maths topics in our House groups. It is a great way to practice being Team Players, because when we work together, we achieve more.



















Chess tournament

Yesterday 5 of our learners took part in a Chess tournament at Grey High School. Everybody had a great time participating. Griffin came 2nd overall in the tournament. Well done Griffin and the rest of the team.


West-a-Maths

Wow we have had some very busy moments at school the last two weeks. We sent 3 teams to West-a-Maths last Wednesday. Mrs Bellis and some parents took the Year 5-8 teams. They had a little visit to Mrs Cutbush in Reefton and worked hard at the competition. Our Year 7 team came third.




Well done everybody for participating.

SPACE ART


WALT: Create artwork using new and mixed materials.


We have been lucky enough to have Granny Waters in helping us with our art. We used a mix of flotrol, silicon water and paint and we dropped our paint into a cup from different heights  We chose a lot of interesting colours and put a little of each colour at a time.
