Our Triathlon Experience

We have been writing recounts to record our Triathlon experience. We had heaps of fun! The best part of the day was a lot of parents and grandparents turned up to watch and encourage our students.

Our recounts have been made into movies using Windows Live Movie Maker and our brand new Easi Speak Microphones.

This is Keagan's recount but everyone is working hard to complete theirs and post them to their Kidblogs. Please have a look and leave us a comment. We love comments!

Pick Me!

I really enjoy seeing the students working together focused and cooperative.
As the senior class in our school, all the students are required to apply for positions of responsibilities. At this time of the year they work hard to impress us. They will do anything for you to ensure they get the best positions and hopefully chosen to be Head boy, Head girl or House Leaders.
All the students have been working together to create a format for their own CV. They have explored some CV's, written one for Hiccup and now they are working together to decide what they should put in their own. The CV’s will also form a part of their digital portfolio
As for the staff, it is a tough time choosing the right person for the lead positions as they are all so talented and we know some hopefuls will have their hearts broken.
