“We are Kelston.”


A huge congratulations to Tamatoa for winning 2nd place ; best attendance. This is a good result considering it is week 3.

In Tamatoa we have been working very hard on building positive relationships. Our aim is to establish great friendships where respect, engaged & responsibility is out worked in everything we do.

We have been learning a lot about our school values & setting goals.

Check out these photos.

To set the tone for a great working environment, Tamatoa did a brainstorm to establish class rules. The class rules seen in this picture are student voice. It encourages our students to WALK THE WALK & TALK THE TALK.

Christopher, Linkin, Kenneth & Mr Tasi walking up Mt Eden. We spent time together during the holidays talking about what leadership means & what it would look like this year 2017. It was a cool day. Christopher reckons he saw a horse, but it turned out to be a dog.

On that note : We have family day in week 5. This is a great opportunity for family & friends to check out what your child has been learning in class.

We also have swimming coming up in week 5. Please check to see if your child has filled out all the appropriate swimming forms. It is compulsory for all students to participate as this is a part of our school P.E & Health curriculum.
