Welcome back to term 3.
Today students have brought home a copy of the Kauri notice and the Room 5 weekly newsletter.

Today we did preparation for our Student Led Conferences. We still need a bit of practice but we are getting there.

Just a reminder that school finishes at the normal time for Room 5 - this is why the conferences are spread over 3 days.

Today in assembly Anneke, Grace and James received their BRONZE certificates. Well done.
A number of other Room 5 students will have their names in this week's school newsletter, which will mean they receive their BRONZE certificate at the next full school assembly in week 2.

Future Olympians - Courtney and Jade

Courtney does trampolining at Olympia Gym, and at the weekend attended a trampoline competition. She entered in the Double Mini, Trampoline and Syncro events and placed 3rd in each event. Awesome effort, Courtney.
In a prior competition called Superbounce Courtney competed in a mixed syncro event... and placed 2nd.

Jade does rhythmic gymnastics at Olympia Gym. At a competition held at the weekend she entered 4 different apparatus. At the prizegiving she received a 3rd place medal for teamwork. Way to go, Jade.

Here are the girls fresh from sharing their news with the class.

Well done, Courtney. All your hard word and diligence has paid off. Now, to get to your second gold...

Today for oral language SCOTT, HARRISON and AUSTIN talked about their hut that they are constructing out on the field. There was talk of a door, marshmellows being toasted over an open fire, a 'hut club' and other amazing design features. Here is a picture of the hut in its early construction phase.
