Link to Speech Writing

Kaikohe West is preparing for the Rotary Speech Competition, so if your child is bringing home their speech, please take the time to listen to them and give them encouraging support.  Talking in front of others can be very nerve-wracking, so constructive feedback is really important.  Speeches will be held at the RSA in Kaikohe on the 20th June, commencing with a dinner and speeches begin at 6:45pm.  If your child is selected from our kura, you are more than welcome to participate in the event.
I will be posting a couple of our class speeches after the 6th June.

Have a great day.

Garden to table / Our journey so far.




Woo hoo, we are off on our journey with Gill to create the best Garden to Table Programme we can.  We have tried to involve our tamariki through each step, and some of it was hard work, hence the few that remained when the going got tough.  Anyway we are up to adding some levelling compound to the whare floor before we put in the new lino, so our kitchen area is still pretty much a week to two weeks away.  Special thanks to Tracey Miller for donating a fridge for our whare, and whaea Nicki for donating two big tables.  Can't wait to actually start making some kai to share with everyone.
