Congratulations to these fantastic learners who received certificates at hub hui! They have either a Heart of Achievement Award or a Values certificate.
This morning Miss Kake and Mrs Aldridge are spending time with some of our Otakaro and Waimakariri learners participating in a Tournament of Minds workshop. They are problem solving, collaborating, discussing, questioning and showing creativity. Everyone is excited and the ideas are amazing, well done everyone!
A reminder cross country is on today from 9.20am for our Year 5 and 6's. Wear your house colours and good luck to everyone!
Runathon happened today (finally) after morning tea when the fog lifted. So many children pushing themselves to run another lap to raise more money for camp. Well done everyone! Can we please have all sponsorship money returned to home base teachers by the end of the term.
Thanks to everyone who was involved in making Waimakariri MKR a success - check out these photos! Our focus for the term has been building connections and relationships across the hub, what an excellent example of teamwork.
Congratulations to the following teams for winning 1st place:
The World Restaurant
Mini Master Chefs
The MKR competition today was fantastic. Thank you so much to the parents who were able to help out today and thank you to the many parents who provided ingredients, equipment and presentation items. We were impressed with the preparation and team work demonstrated by the teams. Watching the children fry, chop, stir and plate up showed that many children help out in the kitchen at home. We hope they begin to prepare some dishes for the family.
Croissant orders due in the office by 9am Friday 7th. Collection date Weds 12th.
