RELIABLE REPORTERS Penguins live in the snow. Penguins eat fish. Penguins walk slow. When an egg is born it has to keep warm. Ellie At pet day I saw seven lambs, one goat, four cows, three dogs and one really big horse. I loved looking at the animals it was very fun. They were so cute. I liked looking at the spoons, Zoe's was cool and I really loved how I did mine. I didn't bring any animals because I only have fish. Their names are Oscar and Aries. They are wonderful pets. I wish I could have brought them to pets day.

It was fun listening to the music because I have never heard the orchestra before. I liked making the thunder and lightning sounds. And I liked the instruments because I have never seen them before apart from the ukulele because I have played the ukulele. Alex

Today, 27th October Miss Wadsworth and 10 students from Wakamarina, Alex, Molly Jo, Zoe, Skye, Olivia, Andre, Hannah, Tane, Towa and Kaytie went to the ASB theatre in Blenheim to watch the Navy Show called Commander Claire. The show was very funny and enjoyable to watch. The costumes were relevant to their characters. We had to wait for ages before it was our turn to leave the theatre. The trip home was very quiet. Miss Wadsworth felt like she was travelling alone. We had an excellent trip hanging out with Miss Wadsworth. Written by Alex, Molly Jo, Zoe, Skye, Olivia, Andre, Hannah, Tane, Towa and Kaytie

TAIOPENGA I liked doing the haka – Bailey I liked it when they clapped because it made me feel happy – Emily I liked doing the pukana – Azza I liked doing the pukana blah – Falcon

At school I did Taiopenga, it was fun. I liked it because we sang lots of songs. My favourite bit of the day was when we did the haka because big Jack leaded it so good - Kaedyn

CAMP COOKING On Wednesday night Pelorus had the preparation/Info dinner for our Wellington camp. We all had to cook food for all the parents and siblings that came. The options for dinner were; Burgers, Pizza and Spaghetti Bolognaise. They all tasted really good. Everyone worked well as a team and although we had separate groups everyone helped each other out. The feedback from the parents was that it tasted delicious and it was a great opportunity to find out about camp and catch up with other parents. Taylor

MUFTI DAY with a Difference On Thursday 10 November 2016 dress up as something that begins with the same letter as your first name. Instead of bringing a gold coin please bring a can of food to donate to the Salvation Army Foodbanks as part of their “Cans for Good” Nationwide Campaign as they need restocking. Students may choose to bring more than one item if they wish. The campaign is between the 14-18th of November, however as Pelorus is away on camp we are doing it a week earlier.

HOCKEY SKILLS & DRILLS In Terms 2 and 3 a group of approximately 20 students took part in after school hockey skills and drills, which was initiated by Jim Baillie and run by two capable and competent parents; Melissa Skehan and Viv Forrester. Throughout this time, students learnt stick and ball handling skills, such as open/closed dribbling, push passing, trapping and tackling. Lots of fun was had and by the end of Term 3 we could safely play games adults vs students, without too much risk of injury! A huge thanks to Jim for starting this and donating the hockey balls, and also to Melissa and Viv for your continued commitment to working with such an enthusiastic group of kids.

CALENDAR ART I chose to do this elephant for my calendar art because there are too many African elephants being killed for their tusks and if we don’t stop hunting them soon they will all die out - Anika

NINE COUNTRIES IN NINETY DAYS…

with thousands of kilometres travelled – a healthy mixture of study, culture, language, recreation and the northern summer. All of this was made possible through a sabbatical awarded to Matua B and supported by REAP, the Marlborough Principals’ Assoc (Liz Sissons’ Study Grant) and the NZ Principals’ Federation (Don Le Prou Award). Clearly substantial personal savings were also needed to round out this rare opportunity to take time out for some personal professional learning and new experiences beyond New Zealand shores. A crisp clear 1 July heralded the start of a fairly direct flight path to Prague (Czech Rep) to attend the Feuerstein International Summer School. The area of interest was the Tactile-Kinesthetic Programme developed by the Institute, in part by Prof Roman Gouzman who was also the major tutor to 20 educators from around the world. This programme was developed to help support sight impaired learners and ADHD learners. A very solid study regime based in a Soviet era hotel worked well and evenings were spent sharing allied areas of brain science development, Feuerstein practice and sharing experiences from around the world. Few schools internationally have moved Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment into the mainstream so sharing Havelock’s somewhat still limited experience was received with interest. Some 300 rounded out the numbers doing other training led largely by senior staff from Jerusalem. Only one other Kiwi was present this year and works within the special needs area. Meeting and working with multiple cultures and languages was stimulating but tiring. Further Feuerstein work was completed in Amsterdam and a little in Scotland. Visits to both Gayton and Denver schools in Norfolk also, rounded out the professional aspects of the trip. For the remainder much of the ancient world was explored in Rome, Naples and Greece with more modern history encountered in Auschwitz, Paris, London, Edinburgh and Cambridge. In stark contrast, the heat, modernity and culture of Dubai was an eye-opener – from the ancient souks to the world’s biggest mall and the Berj Kalifa. Brisbane provided some welcome relief to the heat and we enjoyed the last of the Brisbane festival with fireworks and F1-11s screaming overhead. Arriving in Auckland provided another contrast. Heavy cold rain welcomed us home and then lightning closed the airport briefly. Blenheim provided the calm of home and emphasised the busyness and press of humanity beyond our shores. Students in Norfolk struggled with the notion that only 5 million people live in our entire country – they deal with 60 million more. The metro in Paris, London or Dubai leave no doubt that there is something to be said for the relative emptiness of Te Wai Pounanu. No wonder NZ is such a popular choice when comparisons are made. As you know, holidays and trips can fade quickly. Some 4000 stored images should help relive the experience keeping it alive and the specialist training is already being put to good use. A full academic paper is underway for colleagues and the Ministry. All in all, a great trek and highly recommended at any stage.

SUNSMART MYTHS 1) I can’t get sunburnt on a cloudy day. False: You can still get sunburnt on a cloudy day. This is because UV radiation can get through light cloud cover, so unprotected skin can still be damaged. 2) Temperature gives me a good idea of the chances of getting sunburnt. False: The heat from the sun is caused by infrared radiation, not ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV radiation can still be high even on a cool day, when infrared radiation is low. Just think about how easy it is to get sunburnt on the skifields when it can be very cold. 3) I'm windburnt not sunburnt. False: Your windburn is sunburn caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The wind may make you feel cooler but UV radiation can still be high even on a windy day. Just think about why you don't get windburn if you're out in the dark on a windy night. 4) Sunscreen blocks out all UV radiation. False: No sunscreen filters out all UV radiation – that’s why you need to limit your time in the sun no matter what sunscreen you’re using and cover up. 5) Getting badly sunburnt before the age of 20 increases my risk of getting melanoma skin cancer later on. True: If you have a history of one or more sunburns before you turn 20, research suggests you have a much higher chance of getting melanoma skin cancer as you age. 6) Wearing a t-shirt in the water is as sun protective as a rash shirt. False: A wet t-shirt may offer only half the protection it does when it is dry. If you are going to be in the water, a rash shirt and sunscreen is a good form of protection. A full body wetsuit gives better protection

SUNSMART FACTS DID YOU KNOW?  69,000 Kiwis get skin cancer every year  Up to 80% of UV radiation can still get through on a cloudy day. In NZ from Sept-April, even on cooler and/or cloudy days, UV radiation levels can be high enough to cause sunburn  7 teaspoons is the amount of sunscreen you need to apply every 2 hours  Teachers role model sunsmart behaviour in over 90% of our schools by wearing braod-brimmed, bucket or legionnaire hats during outdoor activities & breaks during Terms 1 & 4. Be Sunsmart: slip, slop, slap and wrap to protect your skin and eyes Check out www.sunsmart.org.nz Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

 Research has found that it is the number of times each day we consume sugary drinks or eat foods high in sugar that increases the rate of decay in our teeth.  Foods and drinks which contain sugar increase the production of acid in our mouth which attacks and rots our teeth.  It is therefore helpful for children to learn which are ‘anytime’ foods and drinks.  Cheese, raw vegetables, nuts, unsweetened popcorn, milk and water are just some of the ‘toothfriendly’ options.
