Congratulations to Hannah and Campbell on your marriage, what a beutiful bride.
This week has been very tactile and messy, lots of water play and creating a waka to remember why we have Waitangi day. Have a great family day on Monday and stay safe if you are driving.

Sometimes children take learning in a new direction! Adding water to clay was a favourite today. Great to see children taking control of their own learning 😁
