Week 8 in Orongomai

We are working hard on our production "The Magical Museum". The Orongomai Museum was officially opened by Mr Cameron and the children are enjoying spending time in there.  The backdrop for the "Wave Dance" is looking great too!

Football Fun!

Over the past fortnight Orongomai has taken part in a soccer session run by Jono from Halswell Football. The children really enjoyed the chance to get out on the field and learn some new football skills.

Wonderful Wonderings




 Over the last few weeks during Wonderings we have been exploring activities related to Asian culture. We have created Terracotta Soldiers, made sundials and fans, created the Great Wall of China and discovered pieces of Willow Pattern china in our sandpit.
