Learning - Our Story

Over this term room 9 students have been looking at ways learning helps to make us better.  The movie was shot on location (Ruapotaka School).  As a class we helped to develop the Manaiakalani Film Festival display at the cinema.  Below has the movie we created with the beginning showing the whole class presenting the introduction we would use on the movie launch day.  Enjoy

Sunipa's blog post on art.

This blog post was created by Sunipa. I thought I would add some more information that she may not know.  One piece I wanted to say was that both of these images were created by the team from Genesis Youth and donated to our school.  It is great to celebrate incredible work.  It also shows me that Sunipa is aware of her surroundings and is actively increasing her knowledge and learning.

Here we have some paintings of Superman and Batman doesn't it look cool. Up top we have Superman and at the bottom we have Batman. The painters who did these paintings are so good at what they do .
