Here at Matarau school we have great opportunities. One of witch is in the Junior school, it is called Discovery Time. this is when the teachers in Junior R ooms 1,2,3,4,5,6 set up actives for the Juniors to do.
A lot of the activities are hands on, such as one I saw when I was up there there where kids were making a bird-eye-view of a town which I must say looks pretty cool.
Another thing that they did is a tower made out of milk bottle tops!! I think that if you sent your kids here they would love it!
