Coffee Group and Dance

It has been an amazing start to the year with the Coffee group who have been visiting Pakuranga College and their Cafe to practice social skills and conversations.

Te Hapori Open Evening

To the Parents, families, and caregivers
Thank you so much for the fantastic turnout last night for the first “Te Hapori Open Evening”. It was so inspiring to see the amount of siblings and grandparents who attended to make the evening such a great success.  It was truly humbling to hear such kind words spoken about all the teachers and teacher aides involved with all the young people. Thank you to those who purchased Mosaic’s, Sun Catchers, Button Art, Sausages, and raffle tickets. We hope they bring you as much joy and happiness and they did when we made them. Congratulations to Kerry for having the winning ticket for the Smartphone. I would also personally like to thank my staff for all their hard work in making the evening run so smoothly and making the displays and building look beautiful.
I am looking forward to next term and our next Open evening being even bigger and better.

Powerlifter Pat

Patrick has just competed in his first Powerlifting competition held in Morrinsville over the weekend. Here is some footage of him. Great work Pat we are all very proud of you.

Green thumbs

We have been very busy getting on top of all our garden work. It is starting to take shape and look very impressive. Does anybody know what we planted?

Car grooming

The students have started learning how to groom and wash cars. We are using this as a fundraiser for our class to go on awesome trips and outings.

Show me the money!

All ready we have made a great start to the year looking at Money and Shopping. The students have been looking at price and differences caused by brand and shops.
