Maori Waiata

Room seven was very sad to hear that Mr Tai was away sick on Wednesday. We decided to practice our Te Reo at the same time. Here is our counting waiata Mr Tai taught us (it may be a little off pitch with Miss Davidson directing, sorry Mr Tai!). Nearly all students in room seven can now count to 10 in te reo. Thanks Logan Bellve for helping us upload our video!

Swimming Sports

All the students participated in swimming sports at Stratford swimming pools. What fantastic swimming I saw! Well done to everyone for showing bravery in giving new things a go and trying your best! Auroa swimming sports was a very fun day.
