Intern Leaders

Our Year 6 Intern Leaders received their badges this week. It has been a long time coming but these guys have really stepped up to the mark. They have been improving their role modelling skills within the classroom and around the school. They have created both Wheels Wednesday and IT lessons in the library for students from around the school as well as taking on senior leadership tasks when the year 7 & 8 students have been at technology. Great work Intern Leaders and keep up the hard work!

Kings Canterbury Cricket

We were fortunate enough to have the Canterbury Kings Cricket team come in and hang out with our class and room 6. Two players from the team as well as a player from the women's cricket team came in and taught us some cricket skills and new games that we can play as a class. We would like to thank the players that came in and hung out with us for the morning. We had so much fun!

Tumeke Kapa Haka!

We finally got to show off all the hard work we have been putting into our kapa haka when we got to perform at Horncastle Arena for the Christchurch Cultural Festival. Check out these awesome pictures of us in our uniforms and getting the best performance ever! We did Our Lady of Victories proud!

Canterbury Museum!

Our inquiry theme for term three is Te Waipounamu and Kiwiana. To active our prior knowledge and to get our brains thinking we visited Canterbury museum. As a part of our visit to the museum we were able to have a session with Marissa, who also took us on our journey to Riccarton Bush. This time, Marissa was teaching us all about Kiwiana and why this term is used to reflect our kiwi culture. We were also able to check out the Paua house, which is an important feature of our kiwi history. After having lunch in the Garden, we went on a scavenger hunt throughout the museum in teams. We had such an awesome time, and it has set us up for our inquiry learning for the rest of the term. Thank you to all those that helped us out, especially Mrs Manderson, who came along with us.
