Principal’s Message Term 4 Week 7

Kia ora koutou,

Below we have some wonderful art from the year 5/6 in room 12 and 15. They are Robyn Kahukiwi inspired portraits using oil and chalk pastels. We have some wonderful art work around the school especially in the office admin area. if you have some time, please take the opportunity to have a look.



Room 12 and 15 studied Robyn Kahukiwi, a famous Māori artist. We focused on proportions, shading and blending. We used analogous colours to create our backgrounds.

ERO will be at school today and throughout the week. As mentioned last week, all community members are welcome at the Powhiri, please be at the Fairfield Road side of the school by 9:45 am to welcome our visitors.

There is a lot happening between now and the end of the year, we will keep you posted either through the Principal’s Message, facebook, or your classroom teacher.
