Book Fair Parade!

What a colourful "Kiwi' parade we had at St Pauls for Book Fair Week.
There were farmers and sheep, cows, kiwis, cans of L&P, rugby players, a Kapa haka group and even a Mrs Wishy Washy!
Well done to all of you Kereru Kids who made a big effort to get dressed up in your Kiwi best!

Katie's Dragon

Katie has been working very patiently for weeks on this amazing collage artwork. She started by drawing the outline of the Rain Wing Dragon, adding pieces of fabric, painting and finally adding the flowers. The detail is fantastic! Well done Katie!

Meditating in Kereru

In Kereru Class we enjoy meditating as it helps us to relax and not worry about things so much. It also helps us to focus and face the day with a positive energy.
Here are some photos from our session yesterday and also a clip of the guided meditation we used.
