Kia Ora Koutou and welcome Glenbrook whanau, parents and community. Whakawhanaungatanga: At Glenbrook School we work as a community together. It was an informative evening last Wednesday for parents and whanau who attended our evening on how we intend to use digital devices at Glenbrook School. It was great having our students show parents how we use google docs and timetabling as part of the learning process. More information about how, what and why we will be using BYOD across the school will be shared throughout term 3. Ako: At Glenbrook School… Read More

Cross Country

Yesterday was such a beautiful day … and what better way to celebrate the certain soon arrival of Spring than with our annual Cross Country event.

Well done, Te Whenua 🙂

Rocket man!

Last Friday Te Whenua had a fascinating visit from Gerry Munden, aka the Rocket Man from Aerospace. He bought lots of interesting rockets along with him, and we could see how they are designed to come apart into different segments as they power through space. Many paper versions were created through the day, complete with onboard fuel supply and detachable segments! We loved watching Gerry and Emily set off two rockets on the top field!

Team Work!

Recently the classes in Tui team (Te Whenua, Te Ra and Uenuku) took part in a treasure hunt throughout the junior end of the school. The children were working together as a team to follow the clues and hunt for pieces of paper with letters on them. Once all of the letters were found the children put them together to spell Team Work!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter! The weather was stunning 🙂 The children prepared for Easter by baking Bunny Butts – I know, they sound shocking but they are extremely cute and very tasty!
