Human dominoes!

Have you ever wondered if there was such thing as the human dominoes? Well more than 1,000 workers have set a new world record for the "largest human mattress dominoes". It was completed in the USA on the 11th of April. People held on to mattress, lined up then got pushed. It took roughly about 650 square metres of space to make this domino tumble and it lasted for 13 minutes and 38 seconds! According to the Guinness World Records, efforts have broken the previous record; all mattresses will be donated to charity. Information found on Kiwi Kids News.

Our Lovely Choir

Have you heard of our lovely school choir? If you haven't, my suggestion would be to keep reading to find out more. Our choir has learnt many songs to prepare for their big performance happening at the Vodafone Events Centre around September. There will also be lots of other schools participating in this event as well, such as Papatoetoe West, North, Central and the other schools. The choir is also always practising their performances at Puhinui. Nearly every Wednesday they go there to prepare for this significant event.

Pap East kids were very excited because the whole school got to visit the Auckland Zoo. All of the students had a great experience at the zoo. We got to see lots and lots of animals like Red Pandas, Zebras, Giraffes, Ostriches and turtles.
This terms Inquiry  topic is about making a difference for animals lives.
There are five freedoms They are :
  1. Freedom from hunger and thirst (food and water )
  2. freedom from discomfort (shelter )

Lucy came for a visit!

Lucy came over to our school for a visit on the 26th of May 2017. She tells us that at her new school everything is different, there are small classrooms. She came for a visit and for a friends sleepover. By the way if you didn't know who Lucy was she was an old friend of mine she was really nice and her oma Mrs VW is leaving in JUNE . Lucy's mum is Mrs Buchanan, the teacher in B1, but sadly she left. She likes how there's a big community here in Papatoetoe and she has a lot of friends here in this school. At their house there's a lot of space, she has 3 lovely chickens, her own bedroom and a personal deck. There are also lots of Fantails, Moreporks, Rosellas, Tui's and wood pigeons. There were two classrooms at her school but know there's three. Mrs Buchanan might teach in that third class and Alexis and Charlotte, Lucy's two little sisters might be in that class. She went there because a lot of her family is over there in the countryside too.
