Indoor Bowls

On Thursday's we are lucky to have Vern Goodall volunteer his time and teach some of the Totara learners how to play indoor bowls. We thought playing bowls would be easy but we have found that it can be quite complicated and it takes a lot of skill to get it right. The bowls are weighted and in order to get it in the right place you need to aim almost in the opposite direction to get it where you want it.
We are hoping to get ready for a competition with some of the other schools around Greymouth. We think it would be a lot of fun!

Kung Fu

Today we had a Kung Fu master visit us during our Mandarin lesson. We learnt the fundamentals of Kung Fu and learnt that it was really important to use our mind as well as our body. Our Kung Fu teacher showed us how to use nunchucks and we couldn't believe how fast he could use them without hitting himself. He is very flexible and can kick himself in the head!

Gaming at Grey High

Today Totara 2 were invited to go to Grey High to test some games that the Yr 11 and 12 students had coded and created. We go to see how the games were made and each had a chance to trial and give feedback about the games. This has really inspired us to perhaps find an online site where we can try coding and creating our own games too! Thank you to the students at Grey High for letting us come to play!

Totara 2/3 Hanmer Camp 2017

Last week, Totara 2 and 3 went on camp to Hanmer. We had the most amazing time mountain biking, tree climbing, orienteering, playing Mission Impossible and we can't forget the Lolly Shop and the hot pools!

Although it was freezing, we all had a fabulous time learning outside of the classroom. A big thank you to all of the parents who took time off work to come on camp with us. You were awesome and we couldn't have gone without you!
