Mission Impossible!?

On Monday afternoon we set the students in the Paiaka Hub a challenge.

Here is a pic of Matias and his group reading the instructions:

The students had a great time working in collaborative groups trying to build a tower out of cards with no other accessories allowed. It was great to see and hear conversations around teamwork and how we all come together using our strengths to achieve a common goal. We all had some reflective time to discuss what went well, what could have gone better and what we would do again if we had our time over.


  1. Congratulations to Helen and her team on their very informative and cohesive presentation today . I feel reassured my child is in very good hands at St Francis of Assisi and look forward to a great year of learning!

  2. Thanks Katy as teachers we always do our best to the meet the needs of everyone. I am looking forward to working with you and all the families in our hub.
    Also a very big thanks for being the first person to comment on the blog this year! I may have to find you a reward!
