We had a wonderful trip to Ferrymead on Tuesday 21st November.  Thanks to the wonderful parent helpers who assisted us.

The children spent time in the classroom, bakery, general story, movie theatre and looking at old fashioned clothing.  They also had a tram ride.

On arrival, the children were told of the appropriate ettique of the day:

Stand straight and tall, no slouching.
Shoes must be clean, tidy and polished.
Ladies before gentleman
Children must be seen and not heard.  An adult will start the conversation.

As you can imagine, most children were very surprised by these rules.  They were also surprised at the classroom, lack of playground and how strict Miss Black, the teacher was!

We all had a wonderful day.


The swimming pool is now open and we went for our first swim today.

Words to describe the water - fresh, cold, crisp, chilly, refreshing, warm when you were in!!!

Lower MIddle School Athletics

What a wonderful day it was as our LMS gathered for their athletics.  We have been practicing over the last few weeks and the Room 10 children impressed us all with their determination, encouragement of others, sportmanship  and by the way they gave their best.

Room 10 ready for the day!

Wow Room 10, you are all amazing!!!

Ms Toscano had written the handwriting on the board to do after the roll, but ....
a whole lot of children came in to class after 8.30 and started (and finished) their handwriting before the 9 o'clock bell had even rung.  You are all super stars!!
