Our school used to work in the Bexley Wetland. We were sad to see it go with the earthquakes.

Congratulations to Sesilia and Presgott, our fantastic cooks and the team of children led very ably by Ms Parry and Mrs Firth-Scott at the Ellerslie Flower Show. Our students worked very hard with the support of many of our families and community to deveolp their Samoan Garden, "Afio Mai I Samoa." It was a great learning experience for the children as they took turns to present their garden through song, dance and talking to the visitors at Ellerslie Flower Show. We were delighted with the bronze award for the garden and second prize for our cooks who expertly cooked their lettuce and lamb wraps, presented on woven flax plates, tying in with the theme from the garden. A huge effort, with the planning and preparation due to the enthusiastic leadership of Ms Parry, Mrs Firth-Scott and Christine. A great team!

We had a lot of fun with the crazy bikes from Pedalmania at our Family Fun Night. It was great that a lot of the adults had a go too!
