As part of their Inquiry Learning, Room 24 and 25 celebrated the Indian Holi Festival, including the throwing of coloured powder!
Matipo celebrated Maori Language Week and Matariki with a wonderful assembly led by Mrs Fotheringhame and the Kapahaka group. Each syndicate displayed samples of their artworks, Miss Iwan’s junior Kapahaka group gave a very good performance and the senior Kapahaka group gave an excellent, highly polished performance.
It was a magnificent occasion!
