Strike 3!

Yesterday we had our softball tournament at Keith Hay Park. The Wesley team used positive language and encouraged each other all day. They also showed amazing manners and sportsmanship. We won one of our games 9 - 7 and had a few close games (including a 6 - 7 loss). Lots of great catches and some awesome home runs.

Bush walks, pooters, wētā, dancing, stretchers, tents and scroggin... must be camp!

To get ready for camp we have been researching ways to stay safe on hikes. We learnt five top tips and created infographics to share with you. Here are four of them. Kea, can anyone work out which one is missing and explain it?

Our pledges...

To follow up from our drain game visit we all made pledges about how we can help keep our water clean and safe for us and all other animals. We used food colouring to dye our wet paper, then wrote our pledges on top of them. If you like these designs we will be making calendars out of them next term. Come and see them in Room 3's window!

It's OK to ask for help...

Our wonderful Wesley Wellbeing Superheroes made this fabulous video after we looked at our wellbeing data and found that a lot of students were not very confident asking for help. This video teaches us that you can ask for help from many different people including:

The Great Drain Game

This week the Kea and Hoiho teams were lucky enough to take part in The Great Drain Game, We learnt lots about what happens to our water and how different things can end up in the wrong places. Can anyone answer these questions?
1. Where does water go if it goes down an outside drain?
2. What is sediment and why is it bad?
3. How can we help stop sediment building up in our streams?

Also there is a planting event in Underwood Park this Sunday at 12:00 (see photo for details).
