Term 3 has started with a bang! Our water tank in the ceiling of our school had trouble coping with our -9 frost and burst in the ceiling. This created quite a bit of upheaval in the middle of the holidays and the children were greeted on the first day by a couple of huge drying machines that sounded like dinosaurs in our Junior block. The process of fixing this is underway and we have had quite a few tradesmen into school this week to help us.
The children have arrived back happy and keen to work. We have been pleased to see the number of children who took part in the 'Holiday Reading Challenge'.
The Junior Room is preparing to start their exploration of who used to live in Waitahuna Gully. The Senior Room is continuing their Oral History Unit and look forward to the next step of interviewing some of our local residents to find out and record their memories of 'our place' - Waitahuna.
