THE AMAZING MOA HUNT BOARD GAME - new to the library this week

The Amazing Moa Hunt™ is a truly iconic New Zealand game. If you like treasure hunts, you’re going to love searching beautiful Aotearoa for Moa treasures (footprints & eggs) by guessing the location of New Zealand towns and cities. Experienced explorers can play a second, even more challenging game. Using a set of clue cards, you can launch a fast paced battle requiring quick thinking and even quicker answers!

Come on into the games room with some friends and give it a try!

Anzac Day will fall just after we return after the school holidays on the 25th April.

How about doing some 'home learning' for growing excellence, by researching ANZAC Day and presenting it on a poster?? (you have four weeks to complete it)

I would love to have some wonderful posters to display in the library :-)


Its all happening in the library this week - first Harry Potter triva and now, the Easter colouring competition!

Come on into the library to collect your colouring sheet (a different picture for each syndicate). Return it by Wednesday next week and the winners will be announced at the final assembly on Thursday by the organizers, Grace and Tamara.

Good luck!!!


Has started! - come into the library and collect your trivia quiz sheet.

The prize will be announced next Thursday at assembly by a 'special guest'. Thanks to Angad and Jake for organizing this competition.

It's OK! written by New Zealand author, Jo Heslop and illustrated by Annie Roska

We have been lucky enough to have had the book 'It's OK!' donated to our library by Mrs Garing (in the office)'s mother.

It's OK! has been written by a mother of a special needs son from Waitahuna, a small country town near Lawrence, Otago and beautifully illustrated by his teacher aid.

"One day a little boy named Brody starts at a new school. Brody has special needs and his story tells how his classmates come to realise that "it's ok to be different!"

The book can be purchased from selected bookshops and by email:

It has been one year since the devastating 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. Whilst people world-wide remember the 19,000 people that died, Japan continues to recover a year on.

I have found this really neat website about Japan. Check it out!
