How is your design coming along? Remember - no batteries or store bought boats allowed - you need to build it at home or school. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking and creating.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make our Matariki evening a wonderful success! We all had a great time, singing waiata, making lanterns, star gazing using the App, looking through wonderful telescopes, sharing kai and connecting with friends. St Albans School is a wonderful community!
Kia ora Families
We are excited to be hosting our inaugural Kererū Matariki evening on Thursday 13 June from 5.30-7.30pm.
Please bring your child to the hall and we will mark their names off on our list.
Family members are welcome to stay - siblings must be looked after by their parent.
As we will be going outside to star gaze, the children will need to be dressed warmly. If you would like to download a stargazing App on your phone, we are using Sky View Lite, however, there are many others available.
The small plate of supper and named mug can be delivered to the cafe when you arrive. Children are welcome to bring a torch.
At the conclusion of the evening, parents will collect children from the teachers and their names will be marked off the list.
Thank you for making our Matariki celebration a great event.
The rain stayed away and all the students had a great time in the grocery store, doing housework, cleaning house and trying out school life from 100 years ago.
Here are some clips about floating and sinking, and building model boats that you might like to use for research while thinking about, designing and constructing your boat.
