Kia ora Koutou,

Ruma Kereru have had a fantastic start to the new term. All students have demonstrated ‘Great Strength’ adapting to some of our changes this term. We start our morning session with a Play Is The Way mainstream nest time in our house groups. It is amazing to see the Ruma Kereru’s confidence in sharing their ideas with everyone. Ruma Kereru have also joined the other mainstream classes for literacy and numeracy. This has meant that as a school we are better able to meet all the students learning needs.

Ruma Kereru have designing glasses for Wearable Arts we have looked at a range of different glasses and we loved the fun variety of Elton John’s glasses collection. They inspired us to get quite creative. If you have any recyclable items that we could use in the construction of our glasses they would be gratefully received.

We are preparing ourselves for Athletics, and have been practicing long- jump and high-jump as well as developing throwing techniques for shot put.

Have a great weekend

Regards Brenda Syme and Lisa Te Kira
