ASSEMBLIES These have moved from after break every second week on a Kiwi Can day (so KC leaders could make the awards) to 2:30 on the Wednesday of the odd weeks. This slot will now be taken by another Kiwi Can class and also suits the community better as parents can then also collect their children afterwards. The dates of the assemblies are listed at the front of the newsletter and are also on the school calendar on the website.

IN THE HOLIDAYS… In the holidays I went with my mum and dad and my sisters to the sounds. In the sounds we were only allowed to have power on for two hours. My tooth came out. I felt happy because my tooth came out and I got money. Ellie Gatjens

In the weekend it was my birthday and I got lots of lego and a bow and I got six arrows. I went with Dad and Mum and Alex and Zac and Thomas. I was at Hanmer Springs. I felt happy because it was my birthday. Josh Steele

In the holidays I went with my dad to Emily’s birthday. It was at Emily’s house. We played games and we had party food. I felt happy because it was fun. Abbey Lawrence

In the holidays my family went to the swimming pool with Anger and he pulled my tooth out of my mouth. When we got home I lost my tooth under the couch, but the tooth fairy found it and I got a two dollar. Alfie Foote

MARLBOROUGH TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE

Written by Ari & Taylor

On Friday the 1st of July, the year 7 and 8 students went to the Technology Centre in Blenheim for the Marlborough Tech Challenge. There were 12 teams there including 3 Havelock teams. We had 4 challenges to complete using 5 minutes to plan and 20 minutes to create for each one. Challenge 1 was to make a dress of some fancy clothing, including 1 piece of bling for the Oscars challenge. If we got 1st, 2nd or 3rd Mr Crimp awarded us a certificate that he designed himself. Boyd and his team of Tayla, Jack and Shianne created a very good looking cowboy costume with a gun. Their costume was really cool but unfortunately didn't get a place. Ashley and her team of Jordan, Kane and Taylor created a super-girl costume with a bat thing. Their costume wowed the judges and they got 3rd, well done. George's team dressed Ari up in an evil-looking dress which looked absolutely fabulous. They got an astonishing 1st place. The second challenge was to make a rescue net for Miss Crimp's baby. This task was really hard because the judges gave us a clue half way through which made Jordan's team restart their net. George's team had a really good net, it looked like a football goal. Lots of nets were made out of paper but most of them snapped in two because the baby was too heavy for the net. George's net worked well but when the baby landed on the net the net dropped out of their hands and the baby fell on the floor so their team didn't get a place. Jordan's team had a net that looked like a bunch of knots made out of rope which worked very well. That earned their team 2nd place. Boyd's team had a net made out of paper that was woven together because we weren't allowed to use tape. That net worked really well up until Miss Crimp jumped onto it to see if it would hold her too. Their team got an astounding 1st place. Challenge number 3 was to make a water tower that could hold a 1 litre bottle of water. We had to make this water tower out of paper. Mr Crimp (who is no relation to Miss Crimp) said that triangles were the strongest structure. Jordan's team worked really hard on their water tower because they wanted to win that challenge and to win overall. Unfortunately none of the teams got a place this time. Our last challenge was the egg challenge. We had to get medicine across the river to the people on the other side. The egg was the medicine and we had to get the egg across the river (driveway) undamaged. Our materials were: paper, plastic, card and string. Sadly Ari's egg got destroyed and didn't get a place. Boyd's egg got annihilated and didn't get a place either. Jordan's egg survived the landing but was really hard to open. They got 2nd place and 2nd overall.

OOBLECK ANYONE? On Monday Wakamarina made some Oobleck. Oobleck looks slimy, but it feels hard, smooth, runny, sticky, jelly-like, and oozy. Oobleck feels dry and melts in the sun. Oobleck feels like clay and it is icky and soft. It cracks on your fingers. It feels weird. It smells yucky and when you squeeze it, it goes hard. But if you leave it in your hand for long enough it melts. Written by Hannah FROM GUM TREES TO CASH Thank you to the students from Te Wananga O Aotearoa who took the opportunity to practise their chainsaw skills under the watchful eye of their Tutor Steve Betteridge, reducing the downed gum trees to a much more manageable size!

Havelock and Linkwater Quilters put on a Spring Fling With the help of some of our able students, the Havelock and Linkwater Quilters have been spending the winter term making some snuggly pillows and quilts, which will go on show at the Town Hall, on September 3 and 4, as part of the special Spring Quilt Show. Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, students from Kaituna and Wakamarina met a group of local quilters, and learned some of the basics of patchwork. Lots of pieces of coloured paper, irons, pins, fabric and machines were used as some mathematically inspired masterpieces were created, using some simple and some not so simple nine block patterns, all made with squares and rectangles. Led by Ruth Sussmilch and Michelle Campbell, and with lots of help from Mrs Eden and Mrs Wearing, who both brought along examples of their own handiwork, as well as inspiring quilts shared by the quilters, students created some amazing examples. These will go on show at the Town Hall as part of the Spring Quilt Show, when the best ones will be judged and some lucky students will win participation prizes donated by the quilters.

‘Tap Into Water’ is a Nelson Marlborough Health campaign based on the simple, yet powerful fact that water is the best drink available. It’s the best choice of drink and helps develop healthy children. It's good for the mind and body as well. Nelson Marlborough Health is encouraging the local education sector to promote water as the first choice of drink for children, and to adopt water only guidelines in line with the Ministries of Education and Health jointly encouraging schools earlier this year to become ‘water only’. This also supports the Ministry of Health’s childhood obesity plan, and a World Health Organisation recommendation to foster healthy school environments. The ‘Tap into Water’ Oral Health campaign is now well underway with the local education sector, workplaces & children’s sport & recreation providers engaging in creative ways to reinforce ‘Water - the best choice’. In support, local artesian bottled water company E’stel, has generously donated a limited number of 350ml reusable bottles of water. We’d love to give them away to schools and Early Education Centres running not-for–profit water initiatives which encourage water as the best choice. To ensure we can meet demand there is a maximum of 100 bottles per application. Think creatively – it could be for your students or a workplace challenge amongst your role – modelling staff. If you are wondering what you might do then check out the website: www.nmdhb.govt.nz/tap-into-water for some ideas and resources. If interested in applying –please be quick : www.nmdhb.govt.nz/campaigns/tap-intowater/tap-into-water-initiative-application-form/ We would love to support your water only initiative.

Report from the Water Committee A third meeting was held with the M. D. C. on 31st July for them to update the committee. Investigations to find an additional water source in the Kaituna Valley have turned out negative and Okaramio was too expensive. We are now going to look at Twidles Island and the Pelorus Valley. Council’s main thrust at the meeting was for water meters to find leaks on private property, which, according to their calculations is approx. 30% of the water we are using. The W.C. is trying to ensure that if meters are installed, they would only be used to monitor and the issue of finding a new water source remains paramount. Council will call for a public meeting to discuss these issues soon. It is vital that all rate payers attend enmass! We will keep you informed.

MAINLY MUSIC Mainly Music is STARTING UP AGAIN. 10am - 11am every Friday at St Peter's Church Hall, 30 Lawrence Street. Music and movement for pre-schoolers. $2 donation per family. Morning tea provided. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861
