Check out some photos of the PrEP groups in Totara 2 and 3 working hard to make lots of products to sell at the Market Day on Friday. We have Nouveau Beauty who have been making some tasty lip scrubs, Fish 'n' Skate who have made some cool skate ramps and fishing games. Krafty Kards have made some very clever cards to sell.
PrEP is a Primary Enterprise Programme where the children create businesses in their classes and create products to sell at our Mini Market and Final Market Day. We also have our own currency which are called "ME's" this year and the children are paid 'ME's' each day for working in their PrEP venture.

Wearable Arts

World of Wearable Arts

This Term Totara children have been working hard on their designs and costumes for our Wearable Arts Competition. This year we decided to focus on Festivals and Celebrations from around the world. Children were to choose a country and then a festival or celebration from that country. The children are working in groups of no more than 3 people. They had to come up with a design that was made of recycled materials. Next week the groups are going to have their costumes and workbook judged, we can't wait to see all their finished products. On Monday of week 10 Totara will have a presentation evening at school with our community.

Here is a link through to WOW which originated in Nelson and is now held in Wellington.
