Puketapapa Hapori (Year 5 and 6)

Hapori Leader:  Julia Delany

We are the Puketapapa Hapori, made up of Year 5 and 6 students.  Our teachers are: Miss Julia Delany, Hapori leader, Year 5; Mrs Karen Vincent, Year 5; Miss Karin Kitshoff, Year 5/6; Mrs Karen Davies, Year 6.

We are excited that this year our Year 5's get to BYOiPad.  When our new school is complete, all students from Year 5 to 8 will be BYOiPad, so it's exciting to be the group leading this!  All students in our Hapori have the use of class iPads, desktops and laptops in to support their learning at school.

This year we are working increasingly collaboratively, to enhance learning experiences in all curriculum areas.  We are certain this will lead to greater levels of independence and know that our students will adapt well to this style of learning.

We have an exciting year ahead of us, beginning with an overnight stay to Kelly Tarlton's. This is in lieu of camp and will form part of our EOTC programme for the year.  

Our students are lucky to have a variety of specialist teachers available to them and will attend fortnightly lessons in: Chinese language, Library Skills, Science & Technology, Music and Art.  P.E. skills will continue to be taught weekly by Mrs Cosford.
