As just another great part of the Wanaka Festival of Colour, we were lucky enough to have a visit from the men of The Nukes. Their ukulele mastery left us spell bound and in a jovial mood for the rest of the day. Thanks for the tasty tunes guys!
We were very lucky to have a visit from El Grego the magician and all his colourful animals as he spread the message of playground respect and resilience to Wanaka Primary while amazing us with his magic tricks.
WE HAD A THRILLING VISIT FROM THE CHRISTCHURCH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA THIS WEEK. THEY SHOWED US SOME OF THEIR INSTRUMENTS WORKED AND EVEN GAVE A FEW LUCKY STUDENTS THE CHANCE TO HAVE A GO AND CONDUCT!
It was great fun attending the Pod 7 assembly on Friday of Week 4. We were treated to some exceptional mihimihi and rolled through a few of the body parts in a musical waiata. It was cool to see all the great work that they have been doing around unpacking the school logo. Keep up the great learning Pod 7!
A handful of lucky WPS netballers got the chance to meet some top level pros this week. It was up to the Southern Steel Netball Team members to pass on some words of wisdom and run a few drills with the girls on Thursday afternoon. By all accounts everyone had an absolute blast and we are all looking forward to seeing how our netballers show their new sting on the court!
It was a huge week last week for our humming little pod. We have been busy finishing off the start of the year assessment and among all that we still found time to sneak in a triathlon. It was great the have Laura and Braden, two world class triathletes, come in on Thursday morning to give us some great pointers for race day. Then on a hot and sunny Friday we got stuck in and had a blast around the Junior course. It was great to see everyone giving it their all and building resilience through stepping out of their comfort zones. Can't wait till next year!
