On Friday Harley from World Vision visited us to inform us about this years 40 Hour Famine. It was good to hear from Harley about this years challenge "One Weekend, One Backpack" which is one of the ways you can complete the famine this year rather than the traditional method of going without food.
There are over 10 of us already signed up for this years famine which is great. This years appeal is raising money for Refugee Children in Syria through creating "Child Friendly Spaces". Every cent we raise will make a difference.

At the start of this term we spent time learning about Anzac Day with our buddies. It was a good opportunity to read some of the school library books on Anzac Day. We also made a handprint wreath to help us think about the ways we commemorate this significant day. It was great to share our learning as a school at our Anzac Day Assembly.
It was a wet and miserable afternoon but our spirits couldn't be dampened as we headed across to Kiwi Golf with Melanie. Luck would have it that once we started the rain stopped and a blue sky started to creep through the clouds.
We always enjoy furthering our golf skills each year with Melanie and some of us will be lucky enough to be involved in more golf coaching later in the year.

Huffing and puffing, my wobbling knees about to pop out. My face red all because we have made it to the view point of Mount Iron. It is amazing.
I forgot to take my sneakers so I am getting blisters. I have to take my shoes off and go bare foot. The mud oozes out of the soggy ground. Rocks pressed into my feet.
Relief as we arrive back at the car.

Here is the visual prompt we could use for our 50 word writing challenge this month. Read Chloe's piece below:
I'm difficult to find, when scared I turn the colour I'm touching. When under attack I swim as fast as lightning.
Shimmering as I swim close to the top, rainbows fly everywhere. Napping on the sandy floor, nothing knows I'm there.
No-one has ever seen me and no-one ever will.
