Army Men Launchers

Room 10 have really been showing how they can work together and problem solve when given some challenging construction projects by Miss Donald.

These army men launchers worked really well and it is great to see Room 10 working together to achieve a shared goal.

Well done.

Our Water

The kids have been getting stuck in learning about our local river and ways to keep it clean and healthy.

We managed to get down to the Manawatu River to learn about water testing then we had a guest speaker from Horizons. We talked about ways we can keep sediment and pollution out of our streams and rivers.

Welcome to our new term.

Room 10 explored some new activities and resources. We also took some time to find out more about each other. It was a really informative and exciting start to the term.

Welcome to Term Two!

Kia Ora.

My name is Sean Koch and it is a pleasure to introduce myself as the new face in Room 10. I am looking forward to getting stuck into Term 2 and meeting you and your tamariki. A little about myself. I'm 35 and I was born in Auckland but grew up in Australia. I did my teacher training in Palmerston North and have recently moved back into the area after teaching in Porirua last year. I also have experience in teaching English overseas, being based in China for several years.

I come from a mixed background with my family roots originating from around the globe (English, Irish, German and Maori).  I love travel and was an enthusiastic geography and history student at school. I am also passionate about the promotion of tikanga Maori and Te Reo in schools and will look to build on the foundations already in place in Room 10.

Finally I love sport, having played tennis, cricket and football as a kid as well as being not to bad at long distance running. I still like to run trail runs and long distance events.

I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know your backgrounds and interests, feel free to pop in for a chat.

nga mihi

Sean Koch.
