Waiouru School is super fortunate to have received funds from the Ruapehu District Council Creative Community Grants Board to bring Mark Glastonbury from Glastonbury Studios, Whanganui up to school every Wednesday to teach dance to our kids.
The kids had their first lesson on Wednesday and absolutely loved it, even though that had to dance with members of the opposite sex (apparently liberal amounts of hand sanitizer post-dancing helps elevate ‘boy germs’ lol I was in tears when I read that on Facebook!). Our goal is that at the end of the term Mark will hold and judge a dance off completion for our students. So save the date whanau, Wednesday 23rd September, it’s going to be better than Dancing With The Stars!!
Here’s a weee sneak peak at the senior classes first session …
For Matariki this year we had a fun family art day with a shared lunch with our mums and dads who were able to pop down during their lunch break. Our classes have been busy creating large pieces of art which we can put up in our shared spaces around the school. Here are a few photos of the construction of our art, I will put up photos of the finished pieces once they are completed.
Waiouru School is so lucky, we were fortunate to be chosen to be part of Z Waiouru’s Good in the Hood in May. Thank’s to all of our community and their support we were able to raise $1070.00! These funds go towards completing our school vegetable gardens, and subsidising transport to school events and class trips. So thanks heaps Z Waiouru Team!!
Thanks Z Waiouru – Serena from Z Waiouru presenting our Korowai Holder Rejoice with our Good in the Hood Token.
Mrs Kings Mum, Dad and Sister were travelling on the ‘Bash.’ We know them better as…Fox in socks (Kandy Mott), Star-Bellied Sneetch (Brenda Webb), Cat in the Hat (Martin Webb) and one of the ‘Who’s’ from Whoville (Teri Webb).
Last Friday we had our school swimming sports, all of our children did so well with most of our students participating in at least one event.We are so lucky to have this facility to use with out cost, that we can just pop down and use anytime.I speak to so many principals about the thousands of dollars they spend on up keeping their school pools or paying for transport and fees to use a council pool.So thank you so much to WMTF for allowing use to use these facilities.Kerry will post the results when she gets back from Ozzy (she doesn’t know she’s doing that yet … thanks Kerry but you shouldn’t leave me alone for so long!).
