The End of 2015

Today was the last day of school for 2015 and the last day at Ruapotaka School for the year 8's and Miss Ginders.  It was a day of fun, smiles (and a few tears).  
A big thank you and see you later, I will miss you all!

The Cultural Performances of 2015

The cultural performances mark the end of another year.  Well done to all those who performed on the day.  You made your families, school and friends proud.

End of Year Achievements

Prize giving was held today and we celebrate the achievements of all students, their effort and progress during the past year.
Awards were presented to Sylvia, Athens, Sione, Azahar and Meana from Room 9.  We are all very proud of them and the achievements of all students in Room 9.  
These were very tricky decisions to make as you have all worked extremely hard this year and I am proud of you all!

(Apologies that there was not a photo of Meana.)

Sharing our Smarts... Cybersmart Room 9

An exciting experience took place in Room 9 today.  Learners got the chance to run their own meeting with their family to share their cybersmart knowledge.  They had created a Wevideo (which you can view on their individual blogs) to share all they have learnt during the year in a digital immersion classroom.  And what a lot of learning they had to share...
