Senior Athletics

It was a very windy day down at Ngā Puna Wai, but the seniors didn't let that hold them back from having a fantastic Athletics day! It was wonderful to see everyone trying their best and giving everything a go. We had long jump, high jump, discus, shotput, long distance running and sprints events. Thank you to all of the parent/caregiver helpers for your support and a BIG thank you to Miss Fraser for all of the organising she did to make the day go so smoothly. Well done everyone!

Here are some photos of the long distance runners:

Year 5/6 Living Springs Camp

The Year 5/6 students really enjoyed their camp at Living Springs last week!! The Koreke team went from Monday to Wednesday and the Kowhai team from Wednesday to Friday. Some of the awesome activities included archery/rifles, team building, low ropes, rock climbing, history walk, swimming, trampolines, orienteering and much more! We had plenty of sunshine, and no rain which made it even better. It was so much fun!!

Welcome back and Window Art

It was fantastic to have all our Otawhito kids back at school for the past two weeks! We have loved hearing about all the children's experiences during the lockdown. As a studio, we produced our lockdown window art. We drew pictures to represent the different things that we did during lockdown such as baking, movies, youtube, walking with our families. We hope you enjoy them!

Art in Ōtāwhito

We have been very busy this week working on our self portraits. The Koreke students chose collage as their medium and Kowhai used pastels. Look at how effective our art looks!
