On the 22nd September we had our annual Mathex competition where 23 schools send their top maths team to compete in a problem solving competition.

There are four students in each group, and one of those students is the runner who retrieves the maths question from the panel, races back to the group and once the problem is solved, races back to the panel to check if they have it correct.   After half and hour the team with the most correct answers wins.

Congratulations to Sunnyhills who came second place.

Market Day at Sunnyhills

Wednesday 23 September we had our market day which was run by our senior school students.  Students had worked hard to create things to sell and learnt a lot about production processes, managing staff and profit and loss!!   Thanks to all the staff and children involved in helping make this a success.

Arts Week 2015

Arts week was a great success.

Children had the opportunity to participate in a variety of art forms from visual art to performing arts.  Lunchtime sessions such as craft in the library/learning hub, drawing on the pavement, performing resident musicians were a real hit with everyone!

Here is a selection of photos from arts week for you to enjoy.  A big thank you for everyone who helped make it such a success.

We also had Jam Bus www.jambus.co.nz which are a mobile recording studio.  Choir and Kapahaka were some of the lucky ones who participated in this.

This is a slideshow of Jam Bus setting up.
