Christchurch Earthquake Fundraiser

Renee and Abi, two of our year 6 pupils wanted to raise money to support the people of Christchurch.
They came up with the idea of a wacky hair day/ mufti day.
Today, one week after the earthquake, we held our fundraiser.
Enjoy our photostory.

At 12:51 we had 2 minutes silence along with the rest of the country.

In singing we sang our favourite 'Bad Hair Day' song.

At the end of the day Renee and Abi held an assembly where they gave out certificates and prizes for the best hair or costume.
We had a really good day and raised over $300.
Well done Broadlands School.

Kapa Haka

Today we had our first
Kapa Haka session of 2011.
We were pleased to see Matua Grant and Whaea Martha again.
The whole school went into the Learning Centre together to practice.
We learned a lot of new words and actions.
Watch our photostory.

Matua Grant told us how to pronounce our Maori sounds correctly.
It is important for us to try to pronounce words properly.
He asked us to make faces while we said the sounds!
Mita o te reo.

We learned the Maori names for parts of the body
and sang a song to practice them.
It was such great fun!

Then we tried going even faster.
Watch Room 4, the New Entrants have a go.
They are in the front row.

We can't wait for next week's lesson.
Thank you Matua and Whaea.
