Our senior team were lucky enough to listen to our fabulous local Ukelele group yesterday. Te Anau School is starting a new music unit, so it was fitting to invite the world famous group. The senior team loved their song list, there was even a boogie or two happening! Thank you to Jackie Knowles and her team for putting a smile on our faces!

The Middle Team had a great experience today learning about what compost is and how to care for our school's compost heaps. After exploring outside, we took samples and looked at them under microscopes. It was so exciting to see all the different kinds of bugs that live in our heaps. A huge thanks to Phoebe and Vanessa for coming in to help us!
