Autumn Leaves - in wax, dye, pastels, and sharpies. Here are some of the students' pictures ready for our display in Grahamstown Bar and Diner. We still have more to be completed and the exhibition will be on view in August. Thank you to the GBD for giving us the opportunity to display our work; parents and whānau please come and check them out.
Earlier on in the term Josh from Project Energise visited Pārāwai School to teach the children how to play Ki o rahi, and this week he showed us the different amounts of fat in various takeaways. The worst was the good old fish 'n' chips with around 14 teaspoons of fat per serving, whereas sushi was a very healthy low fat option. Apologies no photos yet - bit of an Ipad blip...
Next week (on Friday) the students will be playing lots of different Māori games including ki o rahi as part of our Matariki celebrations. Parents are invited to come along and join in.
