On Friday, the last day of term the children at Waitahuna School mucked in to clean-up Waitahuna.  They walked around the Waitahuna streets picking up rubbish and collecting it in bags.  They were provided disposable gloves and bags from the Council as part of initiative to 'Keep New Zealand Beautiful'. Thanks to the children for their excellent attitude and the obvious pride they take in our small town.

Dress like a Book Character day

As a finale to Book Week the children came to school dressed as their favourite book character. We also had a surprise visit from Kyle Mewburn who wrote many fantastic books such as 'Kiss, kiss,Yuck, Yuck, and 'Old Huhu'. Mr Mewburn showed us the process he goes through to write his books and also gave us some tips on where he finds his inspiration to write.
During book week we also had some parents, friends and Grandparents come into school to share their love of reading. Thanks to everyone who helped make a special Book Week at Waitahuna School.
