Student Reflections on Year 7&8

Student reflections on the year 7 and 8 programme  (in their own words) … Options programme …

I really enjoy our options programme where we learn heaps about lots of things.

Cyrus

Options gives us the opportunity to be creative, have fun and learn lots of new things.  I am learning how to code and how to 3D print.  In one option  am learning about ancient stories of the Maori.

Thomas

I love learning Korean.  I’m learning lots about conversation.  I look forward to Korean every week.

Hamish

I love options because I get to do experiments and play with fire.

David

In options I am learning coding and 3D printing.  Last term I did sport science which really helped me improve.

Robert

I like options because we get to blow stuff up.

Elijah

I like using the Bunsen burners in science.

Brigham

In Korean I am learning to say hello and thank you.  I am looking forward to learning more words in Korean.  In science we do experiments, use a meths burner and make smoke.

Community services and Education Outside the Classroom  …

We are learning how to protect our natural environment.  I am also looking forward to winter sports day.  Our year 7 and 8 camp was a blast …  we did so much stuff.  My highlight was meeting the breakers.

Cyrus

For community service I organise lunchtime sport like capture the flag and basketball.

Hamish

For EOTC we went to the Adventure Forest and we also do things that help our environment.

David

For community services this year I wen to Limestone island where I helped to clean the island and learnt lots of interesting facts.

Robert

For community services I went to the quarry gardens which I really liked.

Elijah

You learn a lot on the trips we do and you have a lot of fun at the same time.

Brigham

I enjoyed Pukenui Forest because of the view and we learnt lots of new things, and saw lots of trees.

Riley

Science fair  …

I’m loving science fair.  I’ve already written down all my questions and done lots of research.  I hope I can do it again next year.

Hamish

I am looking forward to science fair this year because it is my first year doing it by myself.

David

I am looking forward to science fair because my topic is dolphins and I think I will find lots of interesting information.

Robert

I am looking forward to science fair because I have chosen a cool topic.

Friendships  …

This is the best year out of my three years at this school.

Cyrus

There is not a singly bully in this school.  Everyone at this school is super dupa nice.  I get a hi every morning from at least 6 people.

Thomas

 

The children at this school are very friendly and there are no bullies.  They are super supportive.  I love it.

Hamish

My friends are really nice and I would never want to leave.

David

When I go to lunch or morning tea I have people who hang out with me.  At my old school I had no-one to hang out with.

I have made some good friends over the last two terms.

Elijah

What I enjoy about this school is that everybody is nice and friendly.
