Pokeno School

Term 1 2022

Let's see what Room 9 is getting up to.


We have been lucky enough to have the use of the WHOLE pool at Tuakau for our swimming sessions twice a week. Depending on their swimming ability, the students are working on their stamina and stroke development, breathing, kicking, and general water skills such as floating and gliding. We have 2 more weeks of swimming at Tuakau, and will finish off by having some fun house relay-type events on the last Wednesday!

Franklin Basket Ball 

We are lucky enough to have an amazing coach come from Franklin Basket Ball to teach Room 9's students some tips and tricks about how to play Basket Ball. Room 9 tamariki loved it and all gave it their best 'shot'. 

Students who are interested in playing for Franklin Basketball team can collect a flyer to bring home with more info. 


Every odd week, Room 9 students catch the bus to Maramarua school! Year 7 students do hard materials with Mr Hunt, while the other Year 8 students do soft materials with Mrs Van. We will look forward to bringing home finished projects!
