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.
Evening - 1:1 Chromebook Programme - 2018 Year 4 Parents
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE
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.
