Swimming Sports Celebrations

As well as our own school swimming sports being so successful two weeks ago, yesterday we had our fastest swimmers compete at the Interschool South East Zone swimming competition.  

As well as some superb individual accomplishments, Muritai School students came away with three awards - the overall school highest  points for participation and finish, and also were voted by all the schools to have:

"Best School Chant" - Muritai
"Fair Play Award" - Muritai

Wow! That really is ‘Being the Best you can Be”

Kindness Value and  Movie
This term we are learning about the value of kindness.  The head students and I worked on looking for some kindness around the school this week.  Here’s what they saw… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIn4FY6Oiwc&feature=youtu.be

FROM THE SCHOOL
CARING FOR OUR DUNES
This week Room 13 have been learning about the importance of preserving the Eastbourne sand dunes.   We learnt the importance of caring for the plants, the different types of plants in our dunes and the importance of co-planting and weeding.

Many thanks to Judith for teaching us this important knowledge. Our next step will be to weed the dunes in preparation for the new plants Mrs Ryan and our class SchoolGen team are cultivating in our school greenhouse.



MONARCH BUTTERFLIES
Most classes have been enjoying watching the Monarch butterfly life cycle close up with swan plants and caterpillars in their classrooms. We have hatched and tagged over 50 butterflies so far and expect to tag at least another two hundred over the next few weeks. We are a part of the national butterfly monitoring programme which tracks numbers of butterflies each season and where they fly. If you sight a tagged butterfly and can get close enough to read its number contact www.mb.org.nz to register it. You will get a reply telling you where it has flown from.
Mrs Ryan

Seren Lewis and Imogen Chappell were most excited to tag their butterfly (a female- I think they wanted a boy!)

FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS - YEAR 7 AND 8

Young and Cinematic
On Thursday Muritai’s senior school went on a trip to the Capital E Arts festival . As a part of the trip we went to watch 3 shows around Wellington. The second show we watched included: Roxy 5 short films ; which kids around the Wellington region made, and 2 short films ; made by kids in England and Australia.

In the Roxy 5 films you had to include: ‘ yeh nah’, a chocolate fish and a Koru.
Some of the senior school students are entering this competition, this year the film must include:a beanie,a gumboot, and the words ‘Ka Pai’

One of these Roxy 5 films was called ‘A Fishy Tale’. This short film was about a young brother and sister. The brother kept on coming in with chocolate fish and the sister wanted some too. She would ask him “Luca where did you get the chocolate fish?”. Grace, the sister decides she wants to go and find the chocolate fish, Grace, goes and searches in many different ponds for the fish.
We would recommend this short film for 5+ as it is a short but sweet, and simple.

One of the Australian films was called ‘Marble Season’. This was about a bully wanting the best marble in the collection. One day  the bully chucked all of Maxie’s marbles over the sandpit and demonstrated some pretty anti social behaviour. Maxie came up with a clever plan to clear Plugger from the sandpit and good won over evil.

We recommend this short film as it has a good message.

We wish our fellow pupils good luck with entering the Roxy 5 short film competition!

Written by: Esme Daley , Angus Flynn and Imogen Chappell.

Mata And The Mysterious Musical
On Thursday the 23rd of March 2017, the muritai senior school and a few other schools attended the three live shows planned out by Capital E for the National Arts Festival.  I particularly enjoyed Mata And The Mysterious Musical which was about a boy who wanted to make music and sing and be famous but the ipad which he used got taken away by his parents. During the night the boy was visited by musical spirits who taught him how to play his instruments amazingly. This was held at Te Papa and was performed  by a very talented Jamie Mccaskill. He played two maori instruments and a bass guitar, electric guitar, ukulele and a loop machine. It was really fun and all the audience were fully engaged. At the end he even invited some students up to play. Overall I rate it about a 7/10 and I recommend it for students aged 8 to 11 and above.

SOUTH EAST ZONE SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Our Muritai School swim team represented our school with pride at the South East Zone swimming championships on Thursday.  We won the overall school points and also won the best chant and fair play awards.  Well done team!
You will also find the swimmers who qualified for the Interzone, which is to be held next Wednesday, here: http://www.sporty.co.nz/asset/downloadasset?id=e4e4198b-c346-42c8-98db-7808d0ecb524  
Unfortunately we won’t be sending any of Year 5 or 6 students to the Interzone event due to the Y5/6 camp taking place next week.

From Senior School Students - Solomon Tito, Cameron Bentley, Ben Murphy and Barney Cass.
On 23rd of March, Muritai school entered 28 students from years 4 to 8 into the South Eastern zones swimming tournament. Pride was shown as Muritai entered Naenae pool. Determination was shown on their faces -  they were ready for the challenge! At 10:30 there was a warm up but it was extremely packed with kids from 7 different schools. At 10:45 the briefing for the day began , by 11:00 the first  races were under way. Muritai started quickly getting a win in our second race. The freestyle events were very quick with some good placings for Muritai . The breaststroke was good with not many people in each race. Muritai displayed a brilliant talent with good placings.

Muritai showed great enthusiasm in the backstroke races. With some placing in the top 3.
Finally the relays were held. Muritai were in all the  freestyle. We got second in all year 4,5,6 and 7 but sadly there were not enough year 8s to participate. The end of the day was great with Muritai winning fair play, best chant _ proudly created by Barney Cass and the Ripper Rugby Team!

We also won the competition 502.5 points.

“We've got the bush, we've got the sea, we got the looks who are we? MURITAI!”

Life Education
We have had the Life Education classroom in our school this week with learners beginning their lessons on making informed choices, respecting others and appreciating their uniqueness.  The children are really enjoying the sessions - and always enjoy meeting Harold the giraffe!
Please ask your child/ren if they've been in for a lesson yet and what  messages Harold had to say!  

Here are our delightful Room 1 students enjoying their learning about friendship in the mobile classroom


Swimming Sports
This week has been a treat for me in being able to attend each of the 3 Muritai Swimming Sport days.  Each of the days were outstandingly organised by our staff, run by our teachers, support staff and parent volunteers, and well supported by our parent community.  
A common comment I heard while talking to parents at the different sports was how much improvement the children have made over the few weeks of swimming we’ve had.  That is wonderful news, and we agree that they certainly have - swimming is such an important life and survival skill to learn.  

Thank you parents for attending each of our events, the students (and we as a staff) love having you all there.  






The Year 1-2 Junior swimming sports on Monday enjoyed aquatic challenges and fun at Eastbourne Pool.






The Year 3-4 Middle swimming sports on Tuesday had diving, races a developmental programme (and dabbing!) at Eastbourne Pool.  



The Senior Swimming sports was postponed on Wednesday due to weather, however we were able to go ahead on Thursday where students from Years 5-8 challenged themselves and each other in a variety of races, cheered on by many spectators.  

Kapakaha
We are looking for some support from our community with Kapahaka.  This may be in or out of school time.  If you or someone you know is skilled and interested in helping us with our Kapahaka group this year please contact our Performing Arts teacher Ruth Hooke at Hooke@Muritai.school.nz

Welcome to ‘Power to the People’, our most popular suggestion for our school newsletter name!
We may change the name around from time to time, and look forward to having some fun with our newsletter ‘brand’.  


I hope you’ve been enjoying the Summer weather! We’ve certainly been making the most of being outdoors here at school, on trips and especially in the pool.


With the sun out we’ve seen an increase in the amount of children scootering and cycling to school - it’s important to model correct behaviour as far as road laws in parking, crossing the road and biking around our school community.  Please help us to remind and model to the children ways to keep themselves safe, and this includes the NZ Transport Rules for cycling.  Check out this useful website which reminds us:
  • Cycle helmets must: be worn; meet an approved standard and be securely fastened.
  • Cycles must have brakes and reflectors.
  • Cycle lights must be on when it's dim or dark.
  • Doubling is not allowed unless there is a special seat called a pillion fitted and there are footrests for the passenger. The legs of small children must be protected from the wheels. Passengers must wear cycle helmets.


We encourage cycling, scootering and being active, please let’s remember these rules to keep us all safe too.

SCHOOL LEADERS 2017
Our heartfelt congratulations go out today to our fabulous new team of school leaders for 2017.  


It was an exceptionally tough job to choose from the multitude of wonderful applications we received and we are already impressed with the leadership shown by all the members of the Senior School over our first few weeks.


Looks like we are in for a very promising year!


Head Boy:  Angus Flynn     Deputy:  Oscar Zuijderwijk
Head Girl:  Millie Watkins    Deputy:  Lily Sambrooke


ICAS AND GREAT KIWI COMPETITION EXAMS
Although we have traditionally offered students the opportunity to participate in the ICAS exams, this year there is another option: The annual CEM Great Kiwi Science, English and Mathematics competitions.  
These tests are organised by The Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring at the University of Canterbury.  They are skills based and designed by New Zealand teachers for New Zealand students.  As a result, they more closely align with with our New Zealand Curriculum.
The competitions cater for students of all abilities in primary, intermediate and secondary educa


tion and measure the performance of students in each curriculum area.
We are keen to explore these as an alternative option to the ICAS exams in future, so for this year we will be offering the choice of both.  We would welcome your feedback (borgonje@muritai.school.nz) around this to inform our decisions for next year.


Notices for both these competitions will be coming home today.  Please complete and return them to the office before the dates mentioned on each notice.  Late entries will not be accepted for either competition.   


SENSORY GARDEN
Our planned sensory garden has now come to fruition. It is situated on the field beside the STEAM room and is ready for everyone to enjoy. It has been planted with a variety of plants especially chosen to incorporate each of the five senses. Special thanks to Kate Brownsword for the design, planting and donation of the plants and to the MENZ shed for the construction of the garden box.  


READING EGGS AND READING EGGSPRESS
It is now time to renew or take out subscriptions to Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress. These programmes are for students aged three years old through to thirteen and make learning to read and spell interesting by engaging them in fun online games and activities that build on each child's individual successes. The students really enjoy the games, songs, collecting golden eggs and other rewards along the way as they feel proud of their achievements and are motivated to keep improving their learning. If you would like a subscription for your child or children please send along $30 to the school office before Friday March 10th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Maureen Buckley.

EASTBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB 2017 SEASON – REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN
The Eastbourne FC welcomes all returning players and those new to the club to register for the 2017 winter season which will kick-off on Saturday 1st April.  Registrations for all grades from First Kicks to Masters can be completed online on at www.efc.org.nz from now until the Monday 20th February.  More information on grades and their formats can also be found on our website, or if you are unsure please send us an email at info@efc.org.nz
*** Important information for those wishing to play in Premier League teams
Last year we successfully formed an alliance with the Stop Out Sports Club, whereby both Clubs worked together to field combined teams for Junior players that wished to play in the Junior Premier Leagues (10th grade and above).  We will continue with the alliance again this season, with players chosen for Premier League teams through a series of trials.  There will be three trials which each player wishing to play in a Premier League team will need to attend.  Trial dates have been confirmed, however we are still to confirm times with Stop Out.  Dates are as follows:
  1. Sunday, 12th February
  2. Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th February (early evening) – different grades will trial on different nights.
  3. Saturday 18th or Sunday 19th February
Please note Eastbourne/Stop Out Alliance teams require an extra commitment from both players and parents (e.g. two trainings per week, travelling further afield to matches which are played anywhere in the Wellington region (including the Kapiti Coast) rather than the Hutt Valley only, and additional costs for extra junior development coaching and various tournaments).  If your son or daughter wishes to trial for a Premier League please ensure you tick the box on the registration form, and email info@efc.org.nz so we can ensure you receive the trial times when they are confirmed.
