Welcome to 2017. Mrs Mana'o is the teacher in Room 1A and our class is made up of Year 4 and 5 students. We will be working collaboratively with our neighbours in Room 2 with Mrs Mildon. We hope that everyone will have a successful year, demonstrating our school values of resilience, respect for self and others, self-belief, integrity and commitment to excellence.

On 21st February, we walked to the West Lynn Gardens on Parker Ave, New Lynn. This was a great experience, seeing the life cycle of a butterfly first hand. Thank you to all the wonderful parents who helped us and explored the beautiful gardens with us. The trip was a language experience and certainly gave our students lots to talk about and to include in their writing!
