The Circus Come to Onerahi.

By Hristo – age 7.


On Wednesday the 6th of August 2014 the great Zurka Circus came to Onerahi Primary School to perform two spectacular performances to us. The first performer was Kelly and she did the amazing hula hoops. I was blown away with that marvellous performance; she could spin three hula hoops on her body while doing the splits!


The second performer was Jade. She did acrobatics. It seemed like the tricks that she did would be impossible. I was ten times more blown away by the second performer because she was so flexible. AMAZING!


I recommend that you take your mum, dad, brothers and sisters to see the circus while they are in Whangarei and you will be blown away too!

The Feast!

Shaquan celebrated his birthday in the weekend. He turned 11 years old. To celebrate we had a delicious feast for lunch. There was chicken nibbles and potato bake. The potato bake was Shaquan's favourite dish! He ate it all! It was an exiting weekend.

LOVE Your Water! Shared writing by Room 15...

Saskia and Sam visited us on Friday last week. They were from Sustainable Coastlines. They taught us to Love Our Water!

They told us about how water gets very very sick. Sick water can kill animals in the sea and rivers. Also if the water is sick it is not safe for us to swim in or collect kaimoana from.
There are lots of ways the water can get sick. It gets sediment in it which happens when it rains, the rain picks up the dirt and washes it in to the rivers. Rubbish also gets in to the water which makes it sick too. Animals can make the water sick by the poos and wees that go into the rivers. Cows can also push the mud in to the water when they are trying to get out which makes more sediment. When people wash their cars on the concrete the yucky stuff from the cars gets washed down the drains and ends up in the harbour. Chemicals from sprays that people use on fruit trees also ends up in our water and makes it sick.

Things we can do to help keep our water safe are:
  • Don't feed the ducks - because they poo in the water
  • Wash our cars on the grass
  • Eat organic food
  • Plant trees around the water to stop animals going in the rivers and their waste going in the water too. The trees also help to stop the yucky stuff and sediment from going into the rivers.
