Most of the teams had wins or draws in their four games, a great result after six weeks of skills sessions with Paul Russell from Football Southland.
A huge thanks to Mrs Knapp and Mr McEwan and Mr Pirie for taking cars and managing the teams and refereeing the games, and thanks to Mrs Musalov, Ms Vincent, Mrs McKenzie, Mrs Bucknell, and Mr Pinckney for helping us with transport. Thanks also to the Pioneer Tavern for the use of their van to help us out of our transport worries!
Sadly this week we farewell Mr Graham Pirie from our classroom- Mr P has been an absolute asset to us and has contributed so much to our learning this year as he completed his final year of teacher training at Otago University.
We loved attending Polyfest and are looking forward to tending to the school vege garden in its new spot by the TBLC (getting moved today by Mr P and some Team Kahu helpers!).
We have loved working with Mr Pirie for all our classroom activities, especially in the last four weeks when he was running the whole programme. We know that the school that employs Mr Pirie will have a fantastic teacher and his new class will be very lucky to have him! He has proven himself to be an awesome teacher and we will miss him! All the best for the future Mr Pirie!
Earlier this week we met up with El Gregoe for his magic show - we learnt about the value of being a HERO for our school (Helpful, Encouraging, Respectful and take Opportunities). We will all be trying to be HEROs at Edendale Primary School and beyond!
On Tuesday we all took part in the Clean Up NZ activity - we were joined by Fonterra volunteers to walk around Edendale township and give the streets a tidy-up. We enjoyed the barbecue and iceblock afterwards (thanks Barbecue Bill and Fonterra!)
