Heart Jam

On Friday the 28th of May Summerland Primary School were raising money for kids who have had heart surgery or problems.  We were doing Heart Jam on the courts.  Everyone wore their pod teachers and brought a donation.  We had a lot of fun.  Mr Sumich took this photo from on top of Bethell's Pod roof - he was very brave!

Sasha and Kirsten's News

On Saturday I went to Tennis prize giving.  My mini trophy is for 'Best Beginner Girl'.  I got a certificate with it and we had a really good time.  My sister, Lauryn, got three certificates and two trophies.  My brother, Dominic, got a mini trophy and certificate for the 'Best Beginner Boy'.  On the same day I lost a tooth.  It had really sharp roots.
I went on a trip to Wellington because it was my brother's birthday and a business trip for Dad.  I liked going to Te Papa and we got to have stickers on our t-shirts.  We went on an airplane - the food was yummy.

The Queen's Message

Abigail, Josiah and Kezia went to Manukau to take part in the Queen's Baton Relay.  The baton, very much like the Olympic torch, carries a message from the Queen to the athletes of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, which will take place in New Delhi, India.  The relay began at London's Buckingham Palace on October 29, 2009, and will travel through 71 countries before arriving in India on June 25 ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which start on October 3.

Playground Ideas

Mr Sumich has asked us to submit the best ever ideas for lunchtime play.
He wants us to think creatively. He wants brilliant ideas for our school, sport, swings, anything, everything... He says, "Be careful what you wish for you just might get it."
We have added all our ideas to a google drawing doc for him to look at.
