K21 Goal Setting For 2019

K21 AquaGym Week

First Day at Aquagym for Kererū 20

Kererū 20 were on the bus bright and early this morning for our first swim at Aquagym.  After being put into groups, they started their lessons with lots of learning on floating, arm circles, kicking and breathing techniques.  What amazing swimmers we have!!  They were a delight to take on the bus and even seemed a little sleepy on our trip back to school!  Kererū 20 are in the pool from 10.00 - 10.30am, if you feel like popping down to see them in action.

All About Me bags today in K19...

Today Ethan braved the audience and shared some special treasures that told us a little more about him.  He loves visiting Castle Hill with his family, biking - he even has special biking gloves, and playing hockey.  He also goes to Cubs and had many impressive badges to show off.

It was lovely to learn a little more about you Ethan!!  We are looking forward to hearing all about the last few children tomorrow.
