Ruma Iwa Class Newsletter Term 3 Week 10 Kia Ora Katou The end of the term is upon us and it has flown by. Term 3 has seen some fantastic progress and achievements this term. These include: • The growth in understanding about sustainable practices when dealing with waste. All the students can articulate how recycling is sorted and reprocessed. In addition, students have set a goal for the term on how they are going to make a difference to managing waste. • Great progress made by all students in reading, writing and maths. This is evidence by their standardised test results. • Talent show Final. Ella, Rachel, Kelsey and Finlay raised several hundred dollars for Ronald McDonald House through their organisation of the Talent Show. • The Oaklands School Quiz Night where nearly $4000 was raised for the Year 8s’ trip to Wellington in Term 4. • Writing Week - especially the Book Character Parade! We have already begun planning for Term 4. There are a number of exciting events next term to watch out for: •Formal Dance - all students will be Dancing with the Stars as they learn the waltz, foxtrot etc in preparation for the Formal and School Production. •Year 8 Trip to Wellington. •Science Workshops with a specialist Science Teacher. Students will be learning about NZ’s Identity which will focus on how NZ’s history has impacted it today. We will be looking at key events in NZ’s history such as the Treaty of Waitangi, The wars NZ has been involved in and the history of NZ’s government. Class Blog Please visit our class blog.
