Room 21

Welcome back to 2024! What an amazing summer we have had so hopefully you have all been able to enjoy some sun and quality family time in the holidays. 

We have an exciting year ahead with many events to look forward to with the highlight being Motutapu Camp in Term 4. This term we are lucky to have our school pool to keep cool, inter class competitions and lots of exciting learning ahead. 


We are lucky to have our 25m pool at Te Rapa. We swim three days of the week - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - as formal swimming lessons and have a syndicate swim on Friday.

Swimming is compulsory. Please send a note with your child or an email to me if they are unable to swim. 

Inquiry - Belonging

This terms Inquiry is all about Belonging.

We will look at what makes us feel like we belong and what does it mean to belong. 

While working through our Inquiry we will look at our Learning Assets which help us to question, investigate and research and seeing things from different perspectives.
