Our students have been privileged to have Counties Manukau come in and take sports with our tamariki. Today was our final session of 'ki-o-rahi' (a traditional pre-European MÃ¥ori ball game)with the crew. Ruma 5 had so much fun learning the history and all the different skills required to be a great team player. 






..Bikes in schools..








Today (Wed 31st May) ruma 5 had their first bikes in schools session for 2017. Students were full of excitement and eager to race one and other around the school field. One of our students even learnt to ride a bike today. (woooowwww) Ruma 5 showed manaakitanga and tautoko towards their teina as she persevered to conquer her fear. It only took her a BIG 3mins to learn how to ride a bike (class record lol)We were soo proud of our Teuila as she mastered the technique of riding a bike. Yaye!!!' 
We all know what's going to be on her Christmas list this year (hehe)
Here are a few photos we would like to share of our awesome morning riding bikes in school.

Term 2- week 5

This week is all about acknowledging our Samoan brothers and sisters. Taking that extra step and learning a little more about the Samoan Gagana and Samoan cultural heritage. We've been learning song's, simple greetings and conducting prayer and hymns in Samoan as apart of our morning rituals. We would like to extend a big mihi to all the Samoan staff, aiga and friends who have supplied us with some awesome resources, kai and sports to make this week that much more special for us all. 

Here's a few things to look forward to:

Thursday: Opening Assembly (Whole School) from 1:30-2:30pm
Friday: Rotations (Whole School) from 9:00-12:20pm. After lunch is our closing assembly from 1:30-2:30pm.
