We had our school service on Friday to honour those who went to war on our behalf. We listened to readings, laid the wreath and lit candles for peace. Then we went to our senior buddy class and made poppies, medals and anzac biscuits.
Here are the words of the song that we sang:
Light a candle for peace
Light a candle for love
Light a candle that shines all the way around the world
Light a candle for me
Light a candle for you
That our wish for world peace will one day come true

Did you see us on TV? We went to the college to take part in a special art work. There was a big crane to take photos from and a ovine picture. The 'milk' poured from the bottle into the cereal and the words said 'Matamata, heart of the Waikato". We were part of the picture frame.
As part of our healthy food unit of learning we made kebabs out of fruit. The trick was that we had to name the fruit in the reo before we were able to put it on our stick!! Everyone did very well and we all enjoyed some jimmy kai. The following week we had veges, and if we named them we could dip them into an onion dip mix..... delicious, and a good way to get the veges eaten with no fuss!
We are sooooo lucky to be a Duffy School. The Alan Duff Charitable Trust aims to get books into homes, so each term the children get to take home books to keep. Our role model came to visit and handed lout boxes with 2 books per child to take home for the holidays. We all love books so the smiles on the faces were magic!
