Good Friends the tamariki's perspective

Our children have definitely got it sorted about being a good friend. Their contributions at a mat time discussion confirm it. We are so proud of them and they role model our good friends policy every day seeking help when they need it..which isn't very often as they are very articulate at expressing their thoughts, ideas and feelings. What a great place to be!

Our visit to Rhode Street School

We visited Rhode Street School today. We learnt about the things that happen at school and we had lots of fun exploring the junior playground with some of our old and new friends at school. Miss Ryan and her class were so welcoming. We always enjoy our visits to the 'big' school.

Parachute Fun

The parachute is a favourite with children and staff. It is always a noisey and fun time. The parachute is a wonderful cooperative activity requiring all the children's participation to manage the parachute. It is a wonderful tool for engaging the children who may be a little whakama (shy) during mat times.
