Merry Christmas

Well, we've come to the end of the school year and what a busy year it's been! We started off in A8 and finished in A4.  We said goodbye to Elijah and hello to Tahtiana, Letarzania, Boanerges, Navid, Ramsey, Jordan and Joshua. On the last day of the term we remembered some of the things we enjoyed about 2012.

  • The Botannical gardens trip
  • writing and publishing
  • planting the garden
  • cooking (and eating!)
  • singing Whati Whati to Hope
  • playing in the playground
  • finding out about hot air balloons
  • working on Studyladder
  • painting the sunflowers
  • playing with friends
  • Pirate Day
  • Fairy Tale Day
  • East Idol
  • listening to stories
  • Jump Jam
  • cleaning up (yeah, I know!)

Mrs Des Forges and Ben and Harry are off to Papakura Normal School next year and Krish Ryan and his family are moving to Hamilton.  But the rest of us will be back to Pap East for more fun in 2013.  
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year everyone!

Happy Diwali everyone!  We buddied up with the cool kids in D5 on Friday and created some gorgeous rangoli patterns.

We decided it was time for a sweet treat.  So it was back to the baking.  This time we made sweet pinwheel scones.  We were so keen to eat them that we forgot to take photos of what they looked like when they came out of the oven.  Let's just say, they were sticky-buntastic!
