Susie Bates- Olympic Ambassador

Today we were so fortunate to meet Susie Bates.  She is a famous NZ Cricketer for the White Ferns (she is the captain).  She has also played basketball for NZ as well.  
She said that the most important things were; friendship, respect, and excellence when playing sports. She also said to never give up on your dreams, and to try new sports so you can see
what sport you like the best, or you are the best at. 
Charlie, Zach, Iziah and Mariah had a game of Knock Out against her.  
We really enjoyed her company and learnt lots from her.

Tournament Of Minds

A team of  Year 5 and 6 students from Wakari travelled to Christchurch for the South Island  Regional Tournament of Mind competition. We won the Language and Literature section for Y5/6 so now the team is off to compete at the National final in Wellington.

Art Gallery Visit


Last Thursday we visited the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. John took us on a tour of the gallery, showing us various artworks. He talked to us about flight (our art visit topic).  Once we were settled into the art studio John taught us painting techniques and then let us be creative as we got busy painting birds. . The art is on display in Room 13 if you want to pop in and see it.
