Well everyone, that is it for another Year in Room 13 at Stanley Avenue School. It has flown by and been such a great journey with the class. We had exciting news - that got shared in the last day or two - We won the Bunnings Christmas Tree competition in Te Aroha - using recycled materials. They all looked amazing and no one tree was judged the particular winner - we were asked to drop one down. I'm thinking the shredded paper one and all the old school reports :) Thanks to the class and the middle school team for the very emotional send off - I think every time I hear that Bryan Adams song I will tear up. It is all about the people - He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. That is what I will miss the most. Have a very Merry Christmas and Safe holiday, look out for each other next year and remember to #choosekind Love Sandie H Signing off for the last time as a teacher PS Forgot to remind you - Mrs H's Precept "Do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons - even when no one is looking" PPS - I'm hoping to share with you the response from Kobe.

We have been busy constructing and creating in Room 13 this week. We have been making recycled Christmas trees. Mrs H's favourite saying this week 'you need to crack an egg to make an omelete' Some have been struggling in the 'learning pit' and having to work out possible solutions. These will be displayed in the upcoming week in the front foyer of the school. Photos will be appearing on here soon...

Over the next 4-5 weeks Room 13 will be looking at an international programme called DQ World which helps to develop Digital Intelligence. Why is this important? - the world has evolved, technology has evolved and children of today need a range of tools in their toolkit to help them along the way. Linked with Netsafe NZ this online programme explores and develops a range of digital life skills.
