Electives Term 3

This term we will be cycling every Thursday with Ben, Mrs Fielder and Mrs Gillespie. Anyone can join the group. There are 8 people who have already joined up by writing their name on the electives list. To go cycling you need to bring a good fitting helmet, your bike of course and shoes. We will be practicing the rules we learnt on our bikes with Constable Sarah.  It may be cancelled if it is raining. Adults are welcome to join too. (Ben)

Every Friday we will be cooking with a group of 5 people. We will all share it for afternoon tea. Thanks to Mrs Prince for offering to help with this. (Cole)

We are now no longer the 'Hydroponics Experts.' We are thinking we will be called the 'Community Creators'.
We are now in charge of creating a relaxing learning space for everyone in our school. This will include finishing off the Treemendous space out side the office and making the library a cool relaxing place eg putting in couches and moving the tv and getting new books. We will be planning with Mrs Minnaar and Mrs Fielder tomorrow.
