Senior Syndicate Trips in September

The 5 classes from the senior syndicate have been studying Conservation.
They have been writing reports about endangered species.
To extend and enrich our learning, they are going to the
Museum and Eastwood Hill Arboretum.
Read this newsletter with details of the 2 excursions.

Dear Senior Syndicate parents/caregivers,
As part of our integrated studies on Conservation we have planned 2 learning experiences.
9th & 10th September:     Tairawhiti Museum for Art
16th September:              Eastwood Hill Arboretum
Both excursions should be powerful experiences to extend and enrich the learning we have undertaken this term.
We need to pay for buses for these trips. Please send $5.00 to the school office. This will cover both trips.
Would you like to come to Eastwood Hill Arboretum with us? We need the assistance of 3 adults for each class to meet the Board of Trustees adult:child ratio for excursions such as this. Please fill out the form below. If we get more than 3 for each class we would love you to come. There is limited space on the buses, so if we get more than 3 adults, some would need to bring their own vehicles.
Details of what to take on the 16th to the Arboretum will be given closer to the time.
Yours in learning

Cheryl Torrie
DP & Syndicate Leader

Awesome author

Kyle is an awesome author! He wrote about going to the movies in the holidays. When he wrote about the cold, frosty morning he used descriptive language and similes! Ka pai Kyle!

100 days at school

These Junior syndicate students are 100 days smarter because they have been at school for 100 days. They did lots of things to celebrate 100 days at school. They had cake as well! I bet that cake was delicious! Ms Allen thought so!
