Kōwhai Team’s Wearable Arts Performance
Over the next couple of weeks, the children in Kōwhai team are exercising their creativity by creating a wearable art garment as part of our inquiry into innovation.
We would love to share this learning with you in a Wearable Arts Performance.
Date: Thursday 5th September
Where: School Hall
On the night, the children will need to meet in the Kōwhai Hub by 6:15pm to be ready to perform at 6.30pm.
Each home group will have time to share their garments on the stage. The evening will conclude with a Kōwhai choir performance.
We are sure this will be a fun and memorable evening for you all and hope to see you all there.
Trip to the School of Gymnastics
To conclude our gymnastic unit, we will be going on a trip to the Christchurch School of Gymnastics. This trip will provide the children with the opportunity to apply the gymnastics skills they have developed at school in a formal setting and under the supervision of professional gymnastics coaches. To cover the cost of the trip, a request for your contribution of $7.00 will be added to your term account. The P.T.A. have kindly funded the cost of the buses for this trip.
Nick and Kate's home groups will be going on Monday, 2nd September from 10:30am - 1:10pm.
Paulette and Rowe's home groups will be going on Tuesday, 3rd September from 10:30am - 1:10pm.
The children will be required to wear appropriate sports a clothing for this trip i.e., tracksuit or t-shirt and shorts or bike pants. They will also be required to have bare feet in the gym. The children are not able to to wear, jeans, dresses, buckles, belts, zippers, jewellery, wrist watches or anything that will scratch the gymnastic equipment or coaches.
Term 4 Mini BallDuring Term 1 and 4, we offer the children in Kōwhai the opportunity to play mini ball in Term 4. Mini ball is a modified game of basket ball. The games are held at Pioneer Stadium on a Wednesday and Thursday (first time players) afternoons. The game times vary each week. Games are 30 minutes in duration and are played between 3:30pm and 5:30pm.
As a school, we provide the children with tops and the cost of the term is approximately $35. The team size is 8-9 children with 5 players on the court at a time.
We will need parents to coach and support the teams each week as our teaching staff have meetings on these afternoons.
If you would like to have your child participate, please fill in this form. The number of teams we can enter will depend on the support we receive from parents to coach and support. Please note, by filling in this form, it does not guarantee a place for your child.
Paulette on LeaveDuring Weeks 8-10, Paulette will be on leave as she travels to Europe with her family. Susan Walsh will be teaching in her place. Susan is very familiar with both the children and the programme so this will make a seamless transition. Paulette will be in contact sharing the places she is visiting while she is away.
