Dear Parents,
We enjoyed discussing student learning with several parents yesterday and look forward to seeing everyone else tomorrow.
One thing that was discussed

Project Based Learning in Tumu

A big thank you to the  whanau and friends who were able to come and be part of the learning in Tumu this week. It is so much more meaningful when our students can share their learning with their families and wider school community.
If you were not able to come, ask your child to share their presentation with you at home. They just need to sign in to their google account on any device to access their work.

Week Three in Tumu Hub

Tumu Hub are having a very exciting week and it is only Wednesday.

Yesterday we went to a presentation called Stemania that is a science show to inspire students with science and technology in a fun and interactive way. 

Stem stands for 
Science Technology Engineering and Maths 

"I liked how they were acting out sketches showing how we can use science to help us with being better at sport." says Pieta.
"It was clever how they could pull words out of the word bucket and create a car." said Jack.

Today students from Catholic Cathedral College visited St Francis.

"My favourite part was how they acted out theatre sports and asked us questions and then made up something about it. They were very clever and thought on the spot." By Charlotte

"They performed their item from the Pasifika Festival. It was a clapping song and it was very cool." shared by Joey, Jayden, Ethan, Ezra and Jack.
