NZ Author, Marie Munro

New Zealand author visit!

Such an exciting morning! Renowned New Zealand author, Marie Munro popped in for a surprise visit!! She introduced us to her new book called “Nana’s Shed”, and thanks to SIKA’s generous contribution we could pre-order a few copies for our library! We managed to have a sneaky peek into it, and we are sure you are all going to LOVE the bold illustrations along with te reo Mãori search questions that feature on each page.  It also contains a three page Maori/English Glossary! So so handy! 

Come and have a read for yourself in our library. Thank you so much Marie!

Book published by Room 25!

With support from Whaea Carolyn, Room 25 published a book called "Where is Mr Robertson?". It tells the story of gardening, planting healthy vegetables, harvesting, and
then eating the healthy foods, but do you know what makes this book pretty special??
The book features ALL of Room 25 and their starry selves as the main characters!! How cool is that!!  Come and have a look in our library.  It is on the "new book" display stand.

Once again we are thanking the Team at Sika for being kind enough to sponsor our Tamariki in Te Whanau with all the necessary equipment, plants and all that was needed to set this garden scene. 

"Tell me and I forget, Teach me and i will remember, Involve me and I learn" - Benjamin Franklin 

Sika, your generosity is invaluable to our school.

A very warm welcome to everyone, and wow! time is flying.  We are way into term 1 already!

It is with absolute delight that i introduce to you our lovely team of librarians for 2018.
