Art Gallery Trip

This week, the children in Paiaka Hub participated in a wonderful art experience at the Christchurch Art Gallery. The Children explored the Gallery and looked at the art of Juliet Peter. In the classroom there, they created a night scene of native birds, nocturnal creatures and foliage. They learned to print stencils and use quick and easy printing tricks such as making rubbings with crayon and dye. They used multiple techniques to build up a layered night-time image.

Enjoy the photos.

Information Evening - 1:1 Chromebook Programme - 2018 Year 4 Parents
1:1 Chromebook Programme Year 5-8
We have successfully rolled out a 1:1 Chromebook programme over the last two years and we have been very pleased with the results. As your child is in Year 5 next year they will need a Chromebook.  We are committed to only using chromebooks as experience has shown us that having multiple devices is problematic. Having one device means that teachers and students are working from one platform. 

Students owning their own chromebooks is our preference as this means they are able to learn anytime/anywhere. We are holding a Parent Information Evening on Monday 12 November at 7pm - not on Wednesday this week as previously advertised. (Due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to change this date).

We will share information about how the programme is run, how we make your child's learning visible to you and we be available to answer any questions you may have.
The Manaiakalani Trust has worked with Noel Leeming Group to present a purchasing option to you and this information will be shared with you on the night.
