Matariki Kite Day

Kapa Haka 
Kia ora o te whanau me nga hoa o te Kura o Karoro

This week we celebrated Matariki. We shared star biscuits kindly baked by the junior school.  We were treated to a pre-lunch performance by our kapa haka ropu on Friday. To top off the week we completed our celebrations with a wonderful kite flying afternoon.

Students across the school designed and built their own kites. We then walked to our local rugby ground and, despite some passing showers and a very light breeze, everyone had a go at flying their kite.  It was great fun!

"Let's Go Fly A Kite."
The tetrahedron kite caught the wind and,
sadly, the rain.


Sun Kite.
This decorative kite flew well!
Kite pre-flight.
A box kite under construction from bamboo
 and lots of hot glue!

A lot of time was spent creating this decorative kite.
Ghost Kite      

Two students
made 'safe' hot air balloons.
They were too safe and didn't lift. Our next mission is to make
the slightly 'riskier' model.
