Greats and Grands Day

We had another very successful Greats and Grands day. The children shared speeches about their grandparents, the kapahaka group performed, our piano musicians performed and the whole school showed off their dance moves with jump jam. Our grandparents then enjoyed a visit to our classroom where they were treated with marshmallow treats and a poem about them. Then we had a lovely shared morning tea, with some amazing food. After morning tea we rotated around a range of old fashion games. Our morning ended with a game of Netball. The grandparents were very competitive and managed to win against our young, fit, fire flies team.
