Learning about Nepal

On Monday in preparation for our mufti day next week we had Mr Jim Cotter from the University of Otago visit us.  He shared about his experiences in Nepal and how life was over there prior to the devastating earthquakes.

We will offer our support through our Mercy Values and do all we can to help with our donations next week.

"Being Reflective"

Whanau Time today was thinking about what it means to be reflective.  To help us understand and make connections we watched "Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are" by Dr Seuss.  Then we made a "Shout Out Wall" and shared our successes.

Spirited singing is alive and well in Room 7

Fun, energy and enthusiasm were in full force today as we enjoyed a visit and interactive performance from Michael Mangan.  Contrary to popular belief Room 7 can sing and enjoy it!!!  The evidence was in their participation today.

Great to see everyone getting involved and putting their personality into some well known favourites and also the new songs Michael taught us.
