Last year we received funding from Tu Manawa for funding for Ki o rahi. This will continue this year. Thank you to Hogan Hynes for coming to Omakere each Tuesday to share your knowledge and passions with our enthusiastic students!
In the program, they will explore various
kēmu Māori and the skills and lessons
that come with these kēmu. The
tauira (students) will also learn the history and
pūrākau of multiple kēmu. Our hope
with tauira participating in this
program is that they hold onto these
taonga and pass them onto future
SCHOOL WIDE PHYSICAL EDUCATION FOCUS
Our Physical Education (P.E) focus for the first 6 weeks of term is swimming. We aim to develop swimming styles as well as teaching some basic safety and survival skills around water. Some safety skills include;
Safe entries into unknown waters,
Floating on their backs,
Sculling on their back,
Front to back roll over,
Classes will spend up to 30 minutes each day building on their confidence and water skills.
All students succssfully participated in a a whole school tryathlon on Wednesday 8th February. They swam 4-8 lengths of the pool, biked 5km and some ran1.5km or 4 laps of the field. It was a hot afternoon, but they all did their very best and we were extreemly proud of their efforts! Thank you to our whanau and helpers who came along to support our tamariki and help make the event successful. This was the first time we had done this as a whole school, maybe it needs to become a yearly event?
We appreciate the support from the traffic and a special mention to the farm that is logging trees at the moment who had obviously read the facebook post and told the logging company that we were holding our tryathlon - thank you!!
