Year 6 @ Technology

Today the Year 6 Students traveled by bus to Christchurch East School to experience Technology which is what they will do as a Year 7 and 8. They got to go to Textiles, Food Technology, Word Work and Materials. All students really enjoyed themselves and came away with a key ring, a bookmark and an 'old school fidget spinner'. Thanks Christchurch East School for having us!!!

These legends went to Belfast School to complete in the EPro8 Challenge which is an interschool Engineering and Problem Solving Competition. They all did extrodinarily well with our Year 6 team coming 1st equal and the Year 5 team coming 4th. They both qualify for the semifinals later this term. All of the 5Rs were on display!

Rugby Fun Day

25 Korimako students along with Mr Sutherland participated in the Rugby Fun Day at Burnside Park. We had a beautiful day for it and it was a fun day out! It was great to see so many talented players on show. What was also pleasing was the amount of students who don't regularly play who decided to give it a go. Ka Pai to everyone!
