Open Days and Evening

It was great to see all the new prospective Avalon students and whanau over the last week.  Here is the progress on the artwork that Cheenal, Ava, Parys and myself have been working on during the open evening.

Tumbling Down

Over the last few weeks a group of students have been making Jenga sets for each class.  This was suggested by the rangitira and will give the students something to do when we have wet lunchtimes.  A special thanks to Mrs Wards and her fabric group for making the bags.

Te Awa Kairangi Kohanga Reo Visit

Today some Service to School students went to Te Awa Kairangi Kohanga Reo  to present the wooden puzzles that they had made.  After being greeted and sung waiata we shared some kai with the tamariki then we spent some time playing with the puzzles with them.  A great end to a rewarding project.

Happy New (School) Year

The Wood Workshop is all ready for a new year with some new faces, and the happy return of last years year 7's.  The workshop has a had a few minor alterations and a bit of a tidy up over the break which has me in a positive frame of mind for the year to come.
