Everybody on the dance floor

Well done Kunere and his team for a well run disco yesterday.  Here are a few photos of the Disco taken by Marcus.

Dom- teaching a few hip hop moves.

Costan the shuffle king.

The students of Room 1 always enjoy their time in Tech Arts.  They virtually sprint to the Tech Block to see their favourite teachers Koka Y and Mr Hanlen.  Hands-on, practical activities that allow the students to be creative and to learn life long skills.  The Year 7’s are currently doing Fabric Tech.  The Year 8’s are doing Wood Tech.  Below are a few pics of future Fashion Designers and Architects.

That’s easy, if my school Kawerau Intermediate stays open.  That would be the most fantastic news.  This process has been a lengthy one and is grating on everyone’s nerves.  Both Staff and students.

However fingers crossed, we should find out at the end of this month or early in July.  There is definitely a sense of anxiety, the not knowing..

So bring on the decision!!


Kia ora everyone!!

Welcome to my Blog!!
