Uncle Mark


Greats 'n' Grand's day
I love my uncle because he has an amazing job, being a police man, he is also very funny and a talented person.
I remember when a I was staying for a holiday at my Grandma's house.
He knew I was there. When the next thing you know he crept up the veranda without a click and he shined the torch through the glass door. 
It was almost brighter than the sun, and then he started banging on the door like a maniac. He is the kind of uncle that plays tricks on me all the time.

My grandpa is awesome and I love him he has lots and lots of experience in life and he tells me storys to teach me things. I think that when I go to a place with my grandpa we will enjoy every second of it.

 I love my Nanny and Koro because I'm always there when they need me. My Koro works at Lockwood and my Nan works at Korowai Aroha. My Koro is very funny because when he tells us his jokes we always laugh. My Nanny is funny too,  they always show up to everything I do. 

 I love my Koro because he loves me and I love him for who he is. He always give me everything I want. My Koro will always love me and always care for me. Sooooo I love my koro.

I love my grandma because she is always kind to me and she helped me with my wearable arts gondola. Sometimes when I am struggling with my homework she will sit down and Help me. I also think grandma is the best in the universe

I love nan becausec she loves our family and she is kind and rich
On that day my aunty came. She had a great time. I tell everybody about her all the time at school and she loved hearing about everybodys stories and talking about their time at schoo l:) Everybody loved it.

I love my Nana because she spoils me and helps me with any problem and is always kind helpful and&nbsp honest. I love you Nanna!?!

Fatima's Nan

I love my Nan because she is part of my family. My Nan hunts and fishes. She used to work at Harvey Normans, Farmers and the Warehouse. She is the best.

Brodee, Maraea, Manaia and Khobi are at Rotorua Intermediate doing a Maths Inquiry lesson. They are soooo enjoying themselves I don't think they want to go back to school.

These are the three girls that showed us how to do fractions and other math concepts. Thank you Tiana, Tia & Danielle.

Update On Atapo

Hi C1. Atapo and I were really sad that we couldn't come to the Noho Marae with you all. As you can see in the photo below she wasn't very well and had to stay in the hospital for a couple of nights. I am pleased to say though that her and I were able to watch you from the playroom at the hospital. We could see Te Teira kicking the ball and Shaydy running around being chased by Whaea June!!! You all looked like you were having a fantastic time.
Atapo is now at home and returning to her old self. She has that cheeky grin again and is learning some new words like..."nah" and "Buster" (even though our dog is called Casper!) We hope you all have an amazing holiday, do lots of interesting and exciting things (even staying at home and hanging out with your parents is exciting). For those of you that have a BLOG you can put up some interesting posts about what you have been doing (remember safety rules...only first names & no ages etc) or add pictures. We look forward to seeing you when you return on the 16th July.

Whaea Lisa & Atapo

Poor Atapo she's not very well and here she is at the A & E trying to get some sleep.

LIFE EDUCATION - With Bernie & Harold

Our brand new Prince & Princess at the Life Education Van. Prince Kiwa and Princess Riley.

Lady Manaia is looking to see what is in the red tower.

C1 engaged in their Life Education visit!

C1 is horrified at what sorts of chemicals go into cigarettes. We never knew that there were so many different things and these affect so many parts of our body. We need to make good decisions, we only have one body!

Bernie making a very good point to our children....read the sign she is holding aaahhhh!

Yah we have the 3rd gem. Ka pai C1.

Unfortunately for me (The Witch) I had to hand over my keys but ..... I got the gems hahaha
