Ended up with 16 hatch from 24 eggs. 2 to 4 days old now.... last one only just hatched Friday afternoon after a hard long effort of around 20 hrs!!! One non hatching egg did have a full chick in it, but obviously died before hatching.

We had an awesome day weeding broom and thistles at Orchid Beach, Manapouri. We were really lucky to have a group of volunteer experts with us, as well as Crystal and Olivia from DOC who helped us to think about how the weeds got there. They all said they were really impressed with our determination to rid this beautiful beach of every last weed!

Lots of people following our chicken story... busy morning with junior classes as well as kindy visiting. Now have 7 chicks. All 4 different breeds out. Lots of excitement before school with two hatching while children watching and one hatched while the kindy were visiting. More chicks are pipping inside their shells..... exciting times. Fantastic writing and reading happening in our school about this experience.

The day the community came out to support!

16 September, 2019

Wow, wow, wow! That was one fantastic Fair! Thank you so much to everyone! The community feel was one that puts a smile on our faces and would have every city school jealous! To the group of PTA members that worked so hard in the background to pull it all together, you guys rock! To the staff and children, the Fair would have been nothing without your energy, planning and work to both get activities up and running and making the day itself fun! To all of the people who ran stalls, helped create, took part and just came along to support, what a great community we are a part of! To all of the businesses and individuals that donated prizes for our silent auction, your generosity was amazing, we are all humbled by what you gave! And of course, the money? How much did we make? That is the icing on the cake! $21,168.60!
