Celebration Time!

Congratulations to our award winners 

We are so proud of our whanau who everyday lead the way with fueling our tamariki with healthy kai and water only. Today we celebrated the whanau with an award presented to their child for their ongoing support in helping us to live our vision to Kia pai taea tatou - Be the BEST we can through what we eat as well as drink.

Nga mihi nui kia koutou katoa whanau for you aroha 
and koha. 

Celebrate good times - Tamariki you are champions

Talofa lava from Room 7

So many learning opportunities have happened in Room 7.
We learnt about and created:
Faatufugaga (Art) - Creating a Siapo
Siva (Dance) - Sasa
Pese (Song) - Lota nu’u

The Samoan language is beautiful and we have
been practicing simple phrases like:
Hello, how are you?
I’m fine thanks
Where is your lunch?

We have our own Samoan leaders in our class. They have taught us so much about the Samoan culture which we have really embraced and will be happy to use everyday.

Designers Happy Birthday treat!

In Room 1 we designed a 50th Jubilee t-shirt reflecting how we see Yendarra today.
We feel so lucky to be here. The way we see our school is very different from when other children saw this school when it first opened 50 long years ago.
