Rimu Performance Video

We have had a great few last days. 

Here is our Performance video for you all to enjoy!

2018 is at an end!!

Wow what a year we have had in Rimu. All our Rimu children have had a brilliant year full of fun, experiences and of course learning. The children have produced a year book of their thoughts of the year. Check it out!

To the children leaving YMS today for further education at other schools, remember a HERO is for life and not just for your time at YMS. Also as Hal Borland said, " An end is neither an end or a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us." We wish you all the best.

To the Year 5, 6 and 7 children who will once again be part of the fabulous Rimu Whanau, we can't wait to work with you again. You have really worked hard this year and it is our absolute pleasure to be able to welcome you back to our class next year.

To those Year 4 children who are joining us in Rimu in 2019, we are excited to have you as part of our class and we look forward to all the amazing things we will do.

To you all, have a happy and safe holiday and we look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 31st January 2019.

It's the Parents (Rimu is open for inspection)

This afternoon we invited the Rimu parents and Year 4 students to come and find out what we have been learning about. The students were excited to be able to share their inquiries, wearable arts, Linc-ed and their other fantastic work. 

It was fantastic to see many of our parents come in, some in their lunchtimes, and spend time hearing about their child's learning. We know it is a pleasure to have the students in our class for 6 hours a day but what makes it even more worthwhile is seeing the eagerness and joy the students have when their mum, dad, auntie, uncle, grandparents ... come and show interest in their work and learning. 

The Year 4's also visited. They were excited to be invited into the classroom and check out what sort of things they might be working on next year. 

Anyway, a photo says a thousand words so have a look at these. 

Off we go Surfing! (Year 7's and 8's)

On Friday the Year 7's and 8's headed off to Sumner Beach to learn how to surf. We were all very excited and happy that the weather was perfect. Our instructors from Stoked Surf School were Donna and Ella. They made surfing look pretty easy but we soon worked out it wasn't as easy as it looked.  We all got wiped out numerous times but we got back up and kept trying. By the end of the day some of us had managed to stand up. We all had a lot of fun and laughs. This activity goes towards the William Pike Challenge. Here are some photos of our awesome day.

Year 7's and 8's Conquer Stand Up Paddleboarding

On Wednesday our Year 7 and 8 children went to Lake Rua to try Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). Geoff and Kelly from Horizons were our awesome instructors. We were split into two groups and while one group were trying the individual boards the other were on the giant SUP. We had such a fantastic time and learnt some new skills. This activity is part of the William Pike Challenge. We wish we could do this again.
