Te Kuia Me Te Pūngāwerewere - The Kuia and the Spider

posted Apr 10, 2019, 2:17 PM by Reception @TMCS   [ updated Apr 10, 2019, 2:25 PM ]

The whole school enjoyed an amazing live show on Wednesday. Taki Rua Productions travelled from Wellington to perform The Kuia and the Spider in Te Reo Maori. The show was highly engaging and the students thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

Te Kuia Me Te Pūngāwerewere showed us that all things are connected in some way or another. No matter how big or small, there is a place for all things. As people, it is important that we ensure that all is respected and kept safe. The production encouraged us to look at the world through different lenses. Through this, we can better understand the cultural landscape of Aotearoa which must be sustained.

Project Energize Leadership Day

On Tuesday, our 24 Tauira Taataariki (Student Leaders) took part in a leadership day organised and run by Project Energize. The children all had a fabulous day and showed us exactly why they have been chosen as our leaders. Throughout the event, the students were given the opportunity to develop team building and leadership skills through physical and mental group challenges. Students gained valuable team and leadership skills including cooperation, communication, trust and respect - while having fun challenging teams from other schools!

Flippa Ball

posted Apr 10, 2019, 2:11 PM by Reception @TMCS

We just finished our season of flippaball last Sunday and our three Tamahere teams did very well.  We practised every Thursday at lunch time in our school pool and played our games every Sunday at St Peters indoor pool. All the players learned to pass the ball around the team, get into ‘free’ space to receive the ball and get away from their opposing player. We’ve seen improvement in swimming with the ball and shooting at goal too.

Emma P enjoyed being goalie in the flippa ball games because she got to use two hands and she liked stopping goals. Casey S liked being on attack in the flippa ball games.


Tamahere Marlins won Division 2

Tamahere Dolphins came 4th in Division 1

Tamahere Sharks came 6th

We were very proud of our results and it was awesome to see the huge improvement from last season. Congratulations to all of our players and a HUGE thanks to all the whanau who drove us to games and cheered us on. We loved playing Flippaball!

Flippaball will begin again in Term 4. Are you ready for the challenge?
