Puzzle finished at last!

Cale, Rydah, Misha and Ti Ri showed great teamwork and HEART by working together to finish off the Hairy Maclary jigsaw puzzle - and they were not even put off by lost pieces! Nice work you four.

Wonderful Tawa Montessori Visit

We were excited to welcome Rex, Zander, Payge and Clodagh from Tawa Montessori on Raapa tekau ma toru, who gave us a wonderful donation towards our breakfast club. They had time to listen to a story, see Constable Jo and guest appear at our Whole Whanau Hui before heading off with their Kaiako and Rex's Mum. Arohanui tamariki.
