What an incredible week we have had.
The highlight for me was Kowhai assembly and the children singing our new school song created by the amazing Andrea.
This is extended abstract thinking when we create.
Last Saturday we had our Kapa Haka Group perform for the launch of Sandra Morris Book.
The teachers involved in that were Ginny, Andrea, Elena and Sarah.

In addition we had visitors come to us from Titirangi School and Medowbank school. This was through Belinda as they were coming to observe MLE. But we really know as Learning Pedagogy.
(Darn forgot the Grelfie- Wendy)
Hats off to Kahikatea with their exploration into hacking the learning.

I presented on the VLN and my interview with Pete Hall came live. You can read all about that here.
Finally the creme de la creme, Wendy shared her inquiry with us. Again demonstrating that she would not expect us to do stuff that she was not prepared to do herself. Wendy was also demonstrating extended abstract thinking when she reflected on her learning.
