Year 4 Netbook Information Night

Well it is time to get our Year 4's ready for using their netbooks next year.  A parent meeting was held last Tuesday night where parents could come along and hear about what Manaiakalani is and what they are to expect next year.
This was well attended by our parents and was a great opportunity for them to be more involved in their child's school life.
Mr Coakley gave an excellent overview of Manaiakalani and where we are at with the TLN (Tamaki Learning Network), how the project is working in our current classes and where we are going next.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Wow, what a wonderful day of celebrating the students achievements with their movie making today was.

Room 6, 7 & 8 presented their Films at the Manaiakalani Film Festival at Sylvia Park Hoyts, X-treme screen.  They were part of the 7 schools presenting.  It was a great celebration of the students work they have done in Media Studies.

The students introduced their movies clearly and with great diction and had the audiences total attention.  All three movies were very well received by the over 2000 people who attended the festival.
Well done St Pius X.
