Arts and Cultural Evening

What a great celebration we had at our Art and Cultural evening at the end of last term.. 🎉  We enjoyed food dishes from our many cultures in our school  - so many it was hard to pick which ones to eat - they were all delicious!

Our students did an amazing job entertaining whanau and friends with songs and skits.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to our very successful evening, and also those who came and celebrated with us, we hope you enjoyed your evening as much as we did 🙏🏽🥰

Making Macrame Wall Hangings

We were lucky enough to have Chloe's nana come and teach us how to make Macrame Wall Hangings today as part of our art showcase for our Cultural Evening.
These were so fun to do - once you got the idea of how to do the knots.  It took a lot of concentration and perseverance to create our master pieces, and the students were very proud of their final pieces!  Some got very creative!
Thank you so much Maureen, we really appreciate your time and sharing your expertise, and also supplying us with the materials!!  💗
