This year's theme was WATER. Our students were fantastic. Thanks to all our community who attended this wonderful event.
Ngā Pūmanawa e Waru provides an opportunity to future proof the education of all Rotorua learners and will make an essential contribution to make Rotorua a great place to learn. A place where people will want to come because they have heard of the quality of the learning that takes place within the district kura and schools.
Malfroy Schools is working with Ngapumanawa e Waru during 2016-2017.
We recently contributed to this video. Check it out!
Every two years we attend Tui Ridge camp for team building activities.
Thanks to all our parent helpers who ensured we had a great two days even though the weather wasn't that kind to us. A special thanks to Flip Out also.
The Rotorua Mini-Marathon event was very popular with students this year. We had 42 students participate this year.
Remembering ANZAC DAY is very important for New Zealand and Australia. Mrs Ellen Collie and Jenny Brell combined their talents to set up the rememberance wall in the school foyer. Mrs Shirley Lane provided her father's WW11 uniform and photos. She also made poppies out of wool. Each school in NZ were provided with a resource box containing white crosses of soldiers from their community killed in WW1.
This was our first talent quest and our students were certainly up for the challenge. The Ambassadors who organised the talent quest received 16 entries from over 30 students comprising a few solo performers and the rest made up of groups. This was the group who performed in the first of two lunch-time sessions.
Our students enjoy the opportunity to get involved in activities outside the normal classroom programme.
Education consultant, Sharon Ross is supporting our Reading focus this year. Sharon is reading "Goldilocks and The Three Bears" with Tessa Threadgill, our reading leader showing how expression and use of text is very important with children's reading. The focus is on listening, thinking and enjoyment.
Malfroy School had 17 students enter this major event. Thanks to Mrs Timpany who started the training programme at the start of the term. Students were provided a passport to track their mileage. They had to reach a minimum of 40 kilometres to qualify for entry. These are our Year 5 students at the starting line ready to run 2.1 Km.
