P1210667Thank you to our senior students and deputy principal Nikki Willis for presenting such a thoughtful and moving ANZAC Assembly this morning. A large number of parents joined us as children shared their learning, including stories, poetry, songs and artwork that captured the ANZAC spirit. Please remember the Gallipoli Light Show playing on a 10 minute loop on the front of the Town Hall from 7 – 9 pm tonight. Our senior students will also lay a wreath on our behalf at the Civic Ceremony, tomorrow, ANZAC Day at 8.30 am.



2015-04-20 16.34.51A very poignant lesson about our ANZAC history this week. The children in Room 1 worked to construct small white crosses as part of a ‘Field of Remembrance’ honouring 30 of the many thousands who lost their lives serving our country. We hope that you will be able to make it to our ANZA assembly on Friday 24 April. 9.15 am. Here at school.

Senior Karapiro School students at Avantidrome

Track Time.. Getting to grips with fixed wheelsThe strong winds and icy showers may have washed away our cycling day but the senior students still managed to have their velodrome session in the warmth of the Avantidrome. Our students did an amazing job with each of them mastering the fixed wheel bikes and giving the track a go. We were then treated to some real speed as the New Zealand team were put through their paces. It was great to receive feedback from the coaching staff about what a well behaved, well mannered and skilled group, our senior students are. Thanks to the parents who came along to support. Visit here to book a have a go session if you would like to try it out!!!
