Sunday 1st of December Team Kauri had Rutherford's Den from the Arts Centre come into school to teach us science. We learnt about the atom and created the structure of an atom using materials. The photo above is the art atoms we created.
We also learnt about Sir Ernest Rutherford and some of his schooling. We wrote in calligraphy using traditional materials.
Our team also learnt about bubbles and what they are made up of. We learnt how to manipulate the shapes of bubbles.
A huge thank you to Rutherford's Den for this awesome opportunity! Here are some photos of our fun.
Friday 1st of November Team Kauri participated in Athletics Day and showed all of our School Values on the day and at the practices leading up to it.
Students dressed up in house colours and supported their teams. Well done to Mahuika who won this year!
Congratulations to all the students who came first and those who qualified for Zones, all the best!
A huge thank you to Mr Young for organising a great day and to the House Captains for their awesome leadership.
Here are some photos of the practices and of the day.
Tuesday 1st of October 2019 At the end of Term 3, Christchurch East School celebrated the diverse cultures of our students. Everyone dressed in clothing that identifies our cultures and we paraded down to Latimer Square as a school.
Many students also performed in our cultural celebration and shared traditional dances. Well done to these students who showed Excellence when performing!
Every student brought in food from their culture and shared it with Team Kauri and we all celebrated our diversity as a team. It was incredible to share a variety of different cultural dishes together.
A huge thank you to all the parents who came into school to help serve lunch to our team. Also thank you to all the parents who put in lots of effort to make delicious food for us to all share.
Strum, Strike and Blow
Sunday 1st of September 2019 On Thursday the 29th of August, Team Harakeke and Kauri Music students attended Strum, Strike and Blow at Horncastle Arena.
These students played recorder, marimba and ukulele with 1400 students from 45 schools around Canterbury. They spent the day practising at Horncastle Arena and then performed in the night for family and whānau.
Each of these students have been practising tirelessly since Term 1 and it was amazing to see all of their hard work come to fruition. They all showed Excellence as they strived to improve their skills throughout their practices.
A huge thank you to our Music Teacher Josie for all the hard work you have put into teaching our students, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!
