Fun Day at Beach Education

Kia Ora Whānau,

This week in Tumu we have been out at Waimari Surf Club learning how to be safe at the beach.

We acted out some rules that help us remember what we should do when we are swimming at the beach.



Although the weather was not ideal the children practiced their skills in the water with big smiles on their faces. We were amazed at all the students who gave it a go and showed their growth mindsets.



A huge thank you once again to all the parents who helped. It was really appreciated and without you, the day would not have been as amazing. 

Next week: Tuesday 4th of December is our Market Day. This term for PBL we have been working hard to create products to sell so we can raise money for charity. 
Tumu students will be selling their products from 10am. It would be really helpful if you could please bring coins as there will not be much change on the day. 

You are all invited to this Market Day. We would love to see you all there!! 
Here is a sneak peek at some of the amazing learning that has been going on.
