Parakai Springs

With the help of some fantastic friends of the Community Class we have been able to visit the Parakai Hot Springs for a fun filled day swimming and going on the hydro slides! It was awesome! Thank you to those people who have supported our class by buying art work, cakes and cupcakes, having your car washed.

Jumping with the Jams

Every Friday we have been helping the House perform Jump Jam for the Juniors to see.
We all take turns at being up the front and always try our very best to remember all the moves for each song.
It is so much fun and a pretty good work out as well.

Oliver St Kent's Middle School Production

On Wednesday the 14th of May we were lucky to be invited to watch Oliver at St Kent's. It was a great trip out and for some the first time going to watch a show that was 2 hours long. There was great dancing and singing and we had a great time there. We would like to thank all the students who come out every Thursday to spend time with us and also for the invitation to Oliver.

Working with our Chrome books.

We have all been leaning about how to use google docs.
