Tagul Word Art

We have been learning how to create Word Art Clouds using Tagul. The students loved creating their artworks using this tool as it was easy to follow what to do on the website and the end results were fantastic. Here are the learning intentions and a couple of examples of what the students created. We are sharing all of our Tagul art at assembly this Friday morning so come along to see your child's work.

NZ Playhouse Puss n Boots Pet Detective

It was fantastic to have the NZ Playhouse visit our school and perform for us their show Puss n Boots Pet Detective. It was a fantastic show that entertained the children and adults alike. Thanks also to Kumara School who came along and shared the show with us. Here are a few photos from the show.
