Welcome to Tawa Intermediate Mr Henderson

Today marked a special day at Tawa Intermediate - the start of our new principal Mr Henderson. There was a special assembly today called a powhiri to welcome Mr Henderson into our school. Students from Mr Henderson's old school Newlands Intermediate came to farewell Mr Henderson. I bet Newlands is sad to see their principal go.

Our class decided to make a video to welcome him to our class because that's how we roll.

Thanks to Jono, Nick and Nate for writing the script, Hayley for filming, Sally-Ann for the music, Tom for editing and all our students for taking part.

We hope Mr Henderson likes our movie.

Do you think this video is a good snapshot of the year so far?

Fast Lane - The Slide

This is a cool example of guerrilla geography - taking something every day and making it more fun.

 How could we make public places like bus stations and train stations more fun?

What has been fun for you this week?

What would you like to do as a fun treat next week?
