As you may know it has been Te Reo Maori week. Paihia School has been doing rotations from class to class. Paihia School has learn’t many new Te Reo Maori words and numbers and even songs. Each teacher has been teacher other’s new skills or reminding them about old skills. We are very lucky to have been able to do the so a BIG thanks to Sarnia Pou (Mrs Pou). Paihia School has had so much fun learning Te Reo Maori and I think that Paihia School with do it again next year.
On Thursday 24th August some students from Te Maunga and Te Ngahere were chosen to go out to the islands for Project Island Song. Project Island Song is a group of volunteers that go out to the islands, trap pests (possums, rats, mice, stoats and etc), plant native trees to encourage other native birds to come back to the island. The Explore team took us out to Urupukapuka. Without their help we would not have been able to go to the islands. From there we were handed over to Debby and BJ, who are part of Project Island Song program. We were split into two groups of twenty and we were off doing projects to help the island. One group did planting and the other made traps or tracking tunnels. We had a great time and are very grateful to the supporters and helpers. Here are some of the amazing photos that were taken:
