Kauri Big Splash

Today we had the Kauri Big Splash. Luckily the weather was beautiful so we didn't get too cold. There were both competitive and social races, altogether 10 races. It was fun watching everyone giving it a go and enjoying the refreshing pool. I'm happy that the school pool is now open.

Room 7 did very well and everyone had a big smile on their face. Well done!!  Below are a couple of pictures of the bucket race.

Visit from Tigilau Ness

We were very lucky to have Tigilau Ness come to Owairaka School. All of Kauri team have been reading Dawn Raids, and one of the characters in the book was based on Tigilau. He spoke about his early life and experiences and the Polynesian Panthers. We also got a chance to listen to some songs. It was a fantastic experience.

A saying from Tigilau is "Educate to Liberate".

Thanks to Taito and Lucas who asked questions on behalf of our class.
