Rutherford Celebration of Learning
Rutherford had a Learning Celebration Day to sign off the end of our learning about Sustainability in the first semester. The Rutherford 7s produced board games to help educate the public about issues around sustainability. We were very proud of their creativity, imagination and the skills they developed in bringing their products to life. It was great to see so many family members come along and try out our games and we really appreciate those that could take the time to come in and participate. Our Year 8s found innovative ways to combine foods which might otherwise go to waste to develop delightful treats which expanded our waist. Some very tasty concoctions were shared around our pod throughout the morning. It has been a hugely eventful 2020 thus far and us teachers feel that our students thoroughly deserve the upcoming holidays based on the quality of the learning artefacts shared today!
The Performing Arts Department has been busy! This term we continued with our instrumental lesson programme and celebrated NZ Music Month with an outdoor concert with local musicians, including our guitar and drum tutors Matt Stevenson and Tyler Sutherland. We had a guest Dance and Drama teacher trainee from the NZ Graduate School of Education, Mrs Sarah Harrison, teach classes - 'Dancing Through the Decades'. Our special choir and other students have performed in assemblies. We look forward to Term 3 with many more performances and events to come!
Hillary Year 8 Learning Celebration
On Wednesday the 1st of July, the Hillary Year 8s had a fantastic day sharing and playing their Sustainability Games with their whānau. Over the last month they have been researching a sustainability issue happening within New Zealand, and then they created awareness around the issue by creating a board or card game. The games included elements of chance and strategy and the players learnt ways to be sustainable. Thanks to whānau that came along to support and play. Awesome effort Hillary Year 8!
