As I went into the wharenui I was amazed! I saw lots of tukutuku patterns. I had to sit on the carpet until we had morning tea. When we were ready we listened to all the Maori people's speeches. After some of the speeches we did a waiata. Then we did some more speeches and the student councillors did the hongi.After that we had food in the wharekai. Later on we went outside to get a photo taken. Soon we said our mihi and then we went back to school. By Emma.

Two stepping stones were given to each pair of children to cross the river. No-one could fall off or they would be eaten by crocodiles! Having to slow down and balance well was a challenge.
And balancing weights in the class is fun for Hannah and Kate.
In R.E. Kea class have been learning about Baptism. It has been very interesting sharing all our special Baptismal things such as candles, photos, certificates, white garments and stories. Some of us remember our Baptism and some of us want to be baptised!
Cooper and Taylor are the chosen godparents.
We baptised the child "In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen."
Blessed oil was used to seal in the Holy Spirit. Dylan was the altar server.
Hannah and Sterl are the proud parents of their newly baptised child.
Under the Sea Parade
This is book week and St Pauls dressed up for the occasion. Here are some shots of Kea children.
Sensational seaweed.... Modelled by Finn and Marco.
Scary sharks... Ben, Cooper and Logan.
John Dorman then read us an hilarious story. Great fun!
