Game Day!

Thanks to Finn and David for planning and organising a game day for Kereru Class for the last week of term. The boys put a lot of time and effort into planning the day. They timetabled a Capture the Flag tournament with Kotuku Class, Mathletics Challenge, Scavenger Hunt and Board Games throughout the day. They also organised trophies and prizes for various events (thanks to parents and grandparents for helping out)
Well done boys! Awesome effort!

It was really fun doing all of the activities especially Capture the Flag.
The Mathletics Challenge and the Scavenger Hunt were the best part of the day. We loved wining the lollies!

I really enjoyed Capture the Flag and the fact that my team won the trophy. Thanks Finn and David!
The Scavenger Hunt was fun and I found some lollies in the tyres.
