Parents doing school tailing on Monday, Ukulele on Tuesday, Snow on the ground on Wednesday with a visit from Pip and the Life Education Classroom, and thankfully the sun shone on Thursday for PET DAY!
The Pet Day was a great success. The children were excited and keen to share their pets. The parents were able to catch-up, visit the classrooms and see the children's work and competition entries on display.
The dog agility course was a highlight and the Grand Parade was a spectacle!
A huge thanks to the parents for supporting this event and a special thanks to Larissa for capturing the photos.

Today Waitahuna School went to our Annual planting day at Bellview Gardens in Lawrence.
We spent the morning potting native plants and also sourcing seedlings from under established plants.
The children worked hard until they had exhausted the potting mix supply.
Next we were treated to roast lunch and cream cakes for afternoon.
We also had a go a fishing for some trout which we could see but sadly no tight lines today.
A huge thanks to Stevie for letting us share your special place. Also a huge thanks to Kasey for all your guidance and the beautiful food - prepared by yourself and Grandad Gordon.
Also thanks to Gary and a special mention to Annie R for your amazing baking. 🌱🌿🍰🍩

Waitahuna has many residents who are passionate about increasing the number of native birds in our area.
Through this initiative we have been able to see an increased number of tui. Our school has been able to support this through native plantings and winter nectar feeding. We appreciate being a part of something that will increase the bird numbers and birdsong for us and future generations.

Mr Robbie came to prune our 4 fruit trees and told us that rabbits were eating their trunks!
We put on our 'thinking caps' and thought of some solutions that could fix the problem.
We decided to trial 2 ideas that were weatherproof and recycled.
We will keep you updated as to how our ideas work. We are still hoping to pick apples, plums and pears from our trees next Autumn.

Country-life must be some of the best writing inspiration.

We have had a mixed growing season but produced a great crop of capsicum which we made into delicious savoury scones.
Today we made Silverbeet soup. This delicious concoction involved even the youngest students at Waitahuna school chopping and dicing. The scenario was put to the children - 'If there was a big snowfall and Mum and Dad are out feeding stock, what can be cooked on the fire if the power is off?' As you can see - they cleaned up the lot! Thanks to Cameron and Elsie for the photos.
