Visitors have been remarking on and the girls are enjoying our vibrant Visible Wellbeing Wall which currently has 'You grow through what you go through' displayed. Created by staff and students the raindrops represent things that didn't go quite right, and the flowers, which need water to flourish, are our successes. Take a look next time you're visiting.

Team Preschool

This week it has been all about 'Team Preschool' as our youngest students focused on the character strength of Teamwork.  Their biggest achievement was running the cross country in awful conditions, they were so proud of themselves and each other as no one gave up, reaching the finish line and splashing through puddles along the way. They've also completed some fun team projects, the Matariki poster, team Jiggle Jam and team-baked a cake to celebrate Teacher Aide, Philippa Gordan's one year anniversary at Preschool. Ka pai! See more images in the Preschool media gallery. (02/07/2020)
