Toru TV Episode 5

Hi all, it's been a few weeks since the last episode. This week's behaviour is to be responsible on the field and courts. One way to do this is by finding help if you need it (as Semisi, John and Cordell will show us). Can you name the other two ways of being responsible in these areas?

We also have mediators starting this week so keep an eye out for them at playtime and find them if you need help solving a problem.

NYLD 2018

We shared what we learnt with a one minute smackdown. Here are the slides we created with a few pictures of students sharing their work.

Resilience Writing

For the last few weeks we have been learning a lot about being resilient. We collaborated with some buddies to write some stories about how a made up character (Ronnie) showed resilience. He might BEND but he will not BREAK!
