Our End of Year Celebration

28 November 2017

Dear Parents

We are planning an end of year celebration day for Te Puawai on Thursday 14th December.

Due to popular vote by the students we have booked to go to Airzone (the cost of this will be covered by our activity fee).

We will leave school by 9:30 and return by 11:30. We then plan to have a sausage sizzle (sausages will be provided by us) and a swim in the school pool.

We will need parents to help with transport and some to assist us with the barbeque.
Can you please fill in the form below if you can help.

Many thanks Geraldine & Jenny.


I can/cannot help transport …….. children with seatbelts/carseats.
My vehicle has a current Registration and Warrant of Fitness and I hold a full NZ Drivers License.
Registration Number: ……………………………………..

I can help with the barbeque at school (please circle one)

The NZ Navy Military Concert Band

Today we went to the TSB Showplace to see the NZ Navy Military Band.
We all enjoyed the show very much, especially singing and dancing along to songs we knew.
It was a great opportunity to learn more about the instruments in the orchestra .
Te Puawai now wants to investigate how we can make some of these instruments for our Outdoor space.

Strawberry Jam Drops.
Today our bakers made Strawberry Jam Drops, using the strawberry jam our previous baking group had made. They made enough for the Teachers to try one each as well. Yummy.

Our Te Puawai Whakangahau


Today Te Puawai had their Whakangahau. We shared our weather poems and were lucky to enjoy a performance by the Kapahaka group. Last Friday they were involved in a kapahaka competition, held in Waitara. Thank you to all of the  family and friends who were able to come and support us.

Solids, Liquids and Gases

Today Zoe and her two whanau groups tricked us all. They had been talking about the difference between solids, liquids and gases and how water can be in all three states.
They made a mixture of half a cup of cornflour and a quarter of a cup of water. They mixed this together and squeezed it into a solid ball. Something exciting happened when the kids passed the ball to a partner and they held it on their flat hands.
You could try this experiment at home and see what happens!
