  • Lizard Garden Opening   On Tuesday we finally opened our new Lizard garden!  This project has been in the making for a little over a year.  It started last year in Taupiri with our inquiry topic about New Zealand lizards.  From the children’s passions and enthusiasm, the idea of building a lizard garden was created.  Most of the planning and creating took place during Wa Tahi, our Taupiri passion led programme. A small group of children measured the site, planned the garden and helped to build some of the infrastructures.  In Term 2 last year, we had a Drive-In Movie to raise money for the paths in our Lizard Garden. We were also lucky to get a large donation of money from ...

  • Welcoming Miss Tolich back with her farewell gifts! It is wonderful to have Miss Tolich back with us for a day a week next Term in Nikau 1. We took the beautiful afternoon of opening and unveiling to celebrate Miss Tolich, by giving her the farewell gifts that we all created for her when she sadly had to resign to take care of family. Miss Tolich was unable to join us to receive these gifts until now. Each of our classes, at that time, created a page of the farewell book, that was presented to Irene Tolich on Tuesday afternoon. Irene was also presented with a framed print of the Tamahere School Library, painted by PJ Smit.
