Congratulations to our very own Annabelle C ( Year 4 Kauri 2) who entered the The Top Outdoor Spot competition for 2017 and was a "Best Drawing" winner!   The annual competition is open to primary and intermediate school students across New Zealand, and asks them to take photos, draw, or write about their favourite outdoor spot.  Well done Annabelle, we are so proud of you!

Lake Taupo


Annabelle, 8

I couldn't choose my favourite place in NZ. So my picture is of Pirongia Mountain (another place I love).

Here is my story about Taupo:

The crystal clear lake ripples gently at my fingertips. Warm water laps at my toes. Gulls are soaring noisily overhead. Their white and grey feathers shine in the sun as they squawk loudly. My ice-cream melts quickly over my grasping hands. Brown ducks bob along the water slowly. The huge mountains stand taller than the squeaking playground. It's beautiful Taupo.
