Niue FiaFia Group Item 2021

 FiaFia 2021 was pretty amazing! All of the items were fantastic and every student involved were absolute stars! This post only shares the performance of the Niue Group for 2021. The tutors were myself (Mrs Lagitupu) and Ms Teleso. 

Well done to Antzell for doing a great job as leader of the group. Well done to Siakupega who led the takalo (Niue haka). Here is a photo and footage from the Niue Group 2021.

Ramadan with Zaria and Swaimah

 This morning I was treated to some special treats from a student in our class - Zaria. She was very kind and decided to share some of the delicious treats that her family had made to celebrate Eid. When Zaria explained to me what Eid and Ramadan was about, I decided that it would be a great opportunity for her to share her understanding with the rest of the class. 

After morning tea, Zaria shared a presentation that she had made last year with her sister Zaeeda about Ramadan. Another student in our class (Swaimah) supported Zaria by sharing her experience with Ramadan as well. Muslims around the world celebrate the festival of Eid (or Eid al-Fitr) to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan. 

They did a wonderful job sharing a bit about their culture and how they celebrate the end of Ramadan. Here are some photos from today. Thank you so much Zaria and Swaimah!

Welcome to Term 2! Watch This Space!

 This term our school wide theme is called 'Watch This Space' with a focus on Planet Earth and Beyond. At the start of each term we have an immersion assembly in the hall to introduce a new topic. To inspire our students, our teachers participate in an immersion item or performance. This term the teachers from Team 4 decided to create a movie to share what our focus will be in Team 4. If you have enjoyed watching the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, then hopefully you will find some humour in our creative attempt to engage and inspire our students with their learning.

Room 7s Digital Noho

 Today Room 7 held a Digital Noho after school at 5pm. A Digital Noho is an event where each child gets to take their chrome book home and joins their class and teacher on a Google Meet. Now most of our students have their own chrome books anyway, but this was a great opportunity to see whether students who usually borrow a loan book to use at school, were able to access their learning online from home. Well done to all the students who attended our Google Meet today!

Lockdown Special 2: Get ready for Google Meets with Mr Goodwin

 During this week (Term 1 Week 5) we have continued with our online learning programme. Our students from Team 4 have been able to access their learning from our Team 4 Site. The teachers from rooms 6, 7 and 8 decided to combine the classes to run the Google Meets together. Luckily we have some clever people like Mr Goodwin who have created resources like the one below to help us to run our Google Meets more effectively. Check it out.
