Puke Ariki and Len Lye Outing

This week, Junior ELA went out to visit the local art gallery and museum. They made themselves a piece of art and learned about exhibits at the Len Lye Centre. They also learned about our maunga (mountain) Taranaki at the Puke Ariki Museum and all the wildlife that live there. It was lots of fun.

Weaving - Raranga in Waitara, Taranaki

On Friday last week, the Junior English Language Class (Yr 9+10 ELA) did some weaving / raranga in Waitara, Taranaki with Karenz Kitz. Didn't they do well? They were also lucky enough to be treated to a fish and chip lunch and sightseeing at Te Rewa Rewa bridge. An awesome day out!
