On 21/06/18 we had bike safety at our school. So far we are one week into the program, all of the students (year 5 and 6) have really enjoyed the program. Today Kamai and Turangawaewae went for our first bike on the road. We went all around a skill course. Then we went on the road and then some groups went to the skate park. On our ride we got to use the signals we have been learning, for real on the road.
On Friday the 21st of June 2018, Katikati Primary School entered the annual Waihi Netball Tournament. The two teams were “All Stars” and “Katikati Magic”. In each team there were 10 players. In the Katikati Magic team there were: Maddie B; Stephania H; Holly W; Grace S; Teyah P; Kate D; Zselea M; Meghan T and Chloe S. In the All Stars team there were: Maddie H; Nete A; Kaivana S; Kallee-Ann T; Kristy C; Reghan H; Kaylie C and Janaea S.
Both the teams did really well. Katikati Magic won 1 and lost two. The All Stars lost two and won one. Katikati Magic came about third in their division. The All Stars came fourth in their division. Also a big thanks to Mrs Purcell and to the parents that got us there.
Well done to the students who went to the Northern Cluster Cross Country. Everyone tried their hardest and did excellently. Special congratulations to Mike R and Coby T for qualifying for WBOP. Coby came 5th and Mike came 1st. The track had more hills and running through the bush than Katikati, but similar amounts of mud on the students! The races could not be run without some of Whakamarama's year 8 marshals out on the muddy course and Jeff our bus driver. Thank you Whakamarama School for letting the runners use your backfield all day and selling sausages!
This year Katikati Primary School sent a team of around 20 students to Fresh Moves at Baycourt Theatre. We got an award for best stage presence. All of the students that came really enjoyed performing on a big stage in front of an even bigger audience. The costumes were great and it was really helpful that most of the kids brought their own black clothes to wear.
Also many thanks to Tim for introducing our dance. Tim from Kamai Pod said before he went on stage he was nervous, excited and scared. But when he went on he really enjoyed it.
The theme this year was BECAUSE and we decided to base our dance on because we know how our brains work. So our dance started with all of these brain cells, we had little LED lights on our fingers that looked really cool in the dark. We showed in our dance how your brain learns new things. Throughout the rest of the dance we showed that our brain was learning and we all had our own little ways of showing it. At the end of the performance we formed a brain again, everyone with LED lights turned them back on again while we did our brain movements, then everyone fell to the floor.
Also many thanks to Mrs McKeown and Mrs Guardian for helping us put our dance together, also to all of the parents that helped with transport. Thank you again, Tim, for helping us on the night. A very big thank you to Mrs Taylor for helping with getting our hair ready.
