Blogpost 5 for Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
Today I went for a walk around our school at our learning break time (morning tea).
I took the following photos in just one ten minute block of time.
|In the staffroom I found a Year 11 boy proud of baking his first pavlova lats night, having brought it in for teachers to sample.... unfortunately by the time I ran back to the office and got my phone to take a photo the teachers had devoured it!|
|In the gym were a group of Early Years students having a game of netball against some teachers, teacher aides and administrative staff, being refereed by a couple of Year 10 girls|
Coming out of the gym I encountered teacher carrying a box of bananas and oranges outside for students to eat
(thanks to the Fruit in Schools programme)
|Walking past the whānau room I said hello to the public health practitioner setting up ready to start hearing and vision testing after morning tea.|
|In the sick bay I found a young Year 3 student who was sick, waiting for her father to pick her up. her older Year 13 sister had come in to check up on her.|
Walking outside I found a group of students ranging from Year 4 to Year 9 all playing a kicking version of four square
|Further along the verandah were a couple of teachers working on laptops out in the sun, rather than inside in the cold.|
|And at the other end of the verandah were some super heroes hard at work.|
|Out on the field a group of boys were playing some kind of hybrid game- again students ranged from Year 2 through to Year 8.|
|And others are playing in the sandpit (bad photo!)|
|A teacher is talking to one of the pre school teachers over the fence that some senior students built for the pre school last year.|
|A teacher aide wanders out for a chat in the sunshine about what she needs to do next period.|
What a wonderful display of aroha, manaakitanga and whānaungatanga I saw in just 10 minutes of a learning break.
Students and staff of TKAS- you rock!
