Over the last 2 weeks Ruma Kereru have been extremely busy. First they competed well in the Junior Athletics. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day. All the students participated well pursuing their personal best in all athletic events, including long jump, high jump, shotput, discus (ring), javelin and sprints. We had some students demonstrating great technique in these events. Well done Ruma Kereru and all year 1 and 2 students, you gave everything a really good go.

Once the Athletics were finished we put our finishing touches on our incredible Sunglasses for the Wearable Arts show. The depth of descriptions and thinking the children demonstrated during this project was incredible. Ruma Kereru had great reasons for all the embellishments they added to their unique designs. They were very articulate in describing their specific features. What a fantastic oral language exercise. Finally the confidence each student demonstrated when walking down the runway was truly amazing. Keep up the fantastic work Ruma Kereru you can achieve anything you put your mind to.

Have a fantastic weekend
