Term 4 is always and exciting and busy term at school. Remember to keep checking the blog weekly to find out all the happenings for the week so as not to miss out on any of the fun. I post every Sunday night for the week ahead. Other calendar items can also be checked on the school website.
This term our focus is on Sustainability with our big question being- What's Worth Saving? There are lots of potential directions the children can take this in so stay tuned as we find out which are will interest the children most. Our very own resident eco-warrior Chloe has created a presentation for the children over the holidays to inspire them to action. I hope your family will support her initiative by taking up the Whanau Sustainability Challenge and making some small, but powerful changes to you can make in your home.
We hope to take a trip or possibly two this term depending on the direction our learning takes. More info will follow after the first week of school, once the children have had time to put their heads together and express their interest around this topic.
