Be healthy

It is really important that all try to be healthy. If we look after our bodies, we will be healthy and happy people ready to learn.
Students practice being healthy now, develop good habits and you will become a healthy adult too.

Feeling Fabulously Fit- Fitness-a-thon

Angles everywhere

During the last two weeks we have been learning about angles. The students have had the opportunity to EXPLORE to know MORE, by engaging in the learning sites, viewing videos and playing learning games about angles.

We are currently in the process of creating our own DLO (Digital Learning Objects) to SHOW what we KNOW.
Here is just one of the very catchy songs about angles that the students have watched.

Hat and Water bottle please.

It's time now to bring a hat and a water bottle to school. As the weather gets better and the days get warmer, it's important to protect ourselves from the sun. Keeping hydrated is always important and WATER is always the preferred drink at Owairaka District School.

To all of the whanau that watched the shows and especially those who helped us with props or costumes etc......THANK YOU!!!!!

To all of the students, you all have a talent that can make a production a successful one. Whether you are a main character, costume designer, props designer or a marketing whiz.
