      Karearea Whanau - Term 4   
Welcome to our Karearea Whanau webpage.
It's nice to be settled back into our Hub and learning under way.  It's been a busy start to the term, preparation for Gala Day is well under way and some amazing visual art is being created across the whanau.  Our Year 7 & 8's have been learning a range of waiata for 
Kapa Haka so that we can perform for the school, and we are making great use of our maker space for art, and science and cooking!  We have been making some sweet treats like Hokey Pokey and Sherbert in our maker space (YUMM!) and learning about the reactions that occur in the ingrediants. 

         Pform - Drama Session       

Today we had our first Pform Drama session with Tom, what a hoot!  The kids had so much fun and what a talented man Tom is.  Cant wait for our next session.

     Hokey Pokey & Sherbert        

Yummmm, making some Hokey Pokey and Sherbert in our cool Maker Space Kitchen as part of our science lesson.

Had such a fun afternoon collecting flax for Gala Day Projects.  What a great way to spend a beautiful afternoon, with a great bunch of people.  Thank you to all of our teaching team who helped to cut, bag and transport Flax back to school for our learners to use for Gala Day Projects!            Gala Day 2023 Projects    
So proud of all of my Room 8 learners for their amazing Art work and projects that they produced for Gala.  I have to say, the skateboards were so much fun to do!  I hope you loved painting them as much a I loved seeing them being created!

We were extremely lucky to have our beautiful learners from Ruru Whanau come up to Kahikatea 1 and join us, we did come counting, alphabet, lego, reading to a buddy and writing.

      2023 Road Patrol Training        

We were super lucky to have Constable Kelly Davys come in to School and train some of our amazing Kea kids (who will be moving to Karearea next year) so that they can take over Road Patrol next year!  How exciting!  The kids did an amazing job, so proud of them for giving up their time to help keep our students safe.
