Water who needs it?

This term we have 'Water, who needs it?' as our theme.  We have been doing some research and note taking.  Check out our class padlet - this is where we have shared a lot of the new information we have found out about water.  We hope you learn something.  Keep an eye on our individual blogs to see the DLO's we create for our 12 activities.

Place Value Experts

Today we had some of our year 5 and 6 students talking about place value.  I think they have done a fabulous job of teaching us a bit about place value.  What do you think?

Week one - The tail end of Cyclone Fehi!

Week one sailed by, it was over before we realised.  We welcomed our new students and did a lot of cybersmart learning.  We are currently creating videos to teach our junior learners about being Cybersmart and safe on the internet.  We will show some of these in Assembly next week.

We had an exciting Thursday, when the remnants of Cyclone Fehi came to Greymouth.  Our School had very limited damage and was able to stay open.  Many children were picked up over the course of the day and a few had trouble getting home because of flooding and storm damage.   We are very thankful that everyone remained safe and unharmed.

Last year some of our amazing year 8 students decided to leave a legacy at Saint Patrick's.  They wrote letters and managed to gain funding for some new furniture for future year 8's to use in Galilee.  In Galilee the year 8's get to sit on the couches and bean bags, this is the privilege they get when they reach their final Primary school year.  These children demonstrated their ability to think of others and act in a selfless manner.  What a kind and thoughtful act.

A big thank you to Claire, Netana, Phoenix and Ben.  Galilee will look after our new furniture and will remember how hard you worked to get this for us.
