Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa te whanau whanui o te Kura Tuatahi o Whakatu – greetings to friends and family of Nelson Central School

Now that Nelson is in the finals we need to step up our efforts to ensure we are serious contenders for the ‘crown’.  Tania has gathered our team together to organise our strategy for participation – what are you going to do to help?? Check out the Nelson Gigatown site and the National site to see what the new rules and competitions are.

Writing from the classrooms …

Kids Can
At school we are going to raise money for Kidscan. People are dressing up   so kids don’t go hungry and for people who don’t have shoes or homes. Hopefully we can get lots. Kids can helps over a 1000 children in New Zealand

On Friday we are having a dress up day for kidscan. We all have to bring a donation and you can dress up as anything. Kidscan is a charity that helps children in New Zealand. Some people might dress up as a astronaut or a soccer hero. They even might be SpongeBob square pants. The money goes to help people to buy clothes and to go to the doctor. I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s costumes.

The best thing in the world is love. It is red like bleeding gums and as soft as a marshmallow. It makes me feel really good when I think about it. (Meg, R9)

The best thing in the world is yourself. You are all sorts of colours - like kind of beige. You smell like heaps of things, it makes me feel happy! (Phoenix, R9).

Naku noa, na
