|When it is wet day lunch, we are stuck indoors but we make use of every minute of our free time.|
We are extending our thinking here by trying out a construction activity.
|Some of us prefer to use our wet lunch times to go into the world of colours and details to relax our brains.|
|We absolutely love adult colouring sheets - they have lots of details and patterns.|
One of our students Motekiai Fangaloka moved with his family to a full primary school.
His family wants to keep their children together in one school until they get to high school.
All the best Motekiai, we all miss you - here are a few of your work to remind us of you always.
Motekiai this quote is for you:
Don’t stop learning
“Take a piece of the school with you. Over time you will have absorbed not only information, knowledge and skills, but also an institution’s values, culture and history. Take that experience and use it to make a difference in the world.”
Kieran McLaughlin, headmaster, Durham School

ILMININISTER INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL KAPAHAKA GROUP PERFORMING AT ROWANDALE SCHOOL
Often we overlook or lack understanding of the significance of Kapahaka in Aotearoa.
Following this fantastic performance by the students of Ilminister Intermediate, we discussed how Kapahaka contributes to New Zealand.
Kapahaka is one of the gateways into understanding the culture of our Tangata Whenua, the Māori people. It also acts as a vehicle for the revitalisation and retention of te reo, tikanga, ritual processes and histories. Kapahaka makes a significant contribution to New Zealand’s national identity and how we are represented and viewed internationally. The haka that is performed just before a rugby game is increasingly becoming very popular and that is only a mini portion of the vast content of what kapahaka is.
Awesome performance Ilminister Intermediate!!
|An opportunity to sit back, listen, observe and learn from the best speech finalists of Whakapono.|
This will be us next year and what a great way to start learning the techniques of how to deliver a great speech.
