Te Mahia School Needs New Toilets

Miss D'Ath and Room 1 shared their ideas about why Te Mahia School desperately need new toilets. Room 1 have been busy writing letters and filming footage about the many reasons why we need new toilets and facilities that are clean and hygienic to use. A new set of toilets is going to cost close to $70,000 and we are a small school that does not have a lot of money.  Have a look at a video Room 1 filmed about the state of our toilets and some problems they have identified with them.

3-Way Conferencing

In week 2, we are going to be conducting 3 way conferences with our whanau. At the conference there will be Miss O'B, Miss D'Ath, our whanau and Room 1 peeps. We are going to be in charge of running our interview, talking about our progress and our goals for term 3. We had a little bit of fun in Room 1 with some role plays about how they might look like (it was funny to say the least). Check out our video, it will definitely make you laugh. We have a lot of preparing to do before week 2 Room 1!!!

Leadership Week

This week is Leadership Week - an annual event organised by the Sir Peter Blake Leadership Trust. As a treat, Aunty Helena, Aunty Les and myself took the Year 8's into town to complete the High Ropes course at the Wairoa Community Centre. It is such as awesome feeling conquering something that is challenging. Believing in yourself that you can do whatever you put your mind to is so important in life so I hope you all continue to do it forever and ever!!!
