End of Year Wrap

The entire community got together to celebrate a wonderful year and have a bit of a sing song. 

It is relatively informal, with families sitting and singing together.
It's also a time where we farewell our Year 6 graduates and they have an opportunity to say a few words! The Year 6 students were fantastic!

WBS Has Got Talent!

Today the student council ran a talent show. It was fun and awesome. There were musical instruments, singers, dancers and more. The judges rated the talented children and added the ratings up to see who would make it into the finals. The prize was a chocolate fish. By Louie

Coding Workshops- 13th December: Must do!


Hack Miramar and Wellington Makerspace Trust are teaming up to put on a series of free one hour workshops that give everyone the chance to learn an 'Hour of Code'. It's all happening from 10am on December 13th 2014
at Scots College in Wellington.

These sessions are suitable for ages 4 to 104, so don't just bring the kids, give it a go yourself. The sessions can cater for complete beginners through to the slightly more adventurous.

This event is being run here in Wellington as part of a global series of events put on by volunteers and educators around the world during "Computer Science Education Week". Participants will have the opportunity to take part in sessions that start each hour, learning some aspects of programming as well as electronics and general technology concepts in just 60 minutes.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Teddy Bear’s Picnic
On Monday 15th December Tautoru will be heading down to Miramar Park for a Teddy Bear’s Picnic.  We will meet at school and walk down at about 9.30.  Children should bring their lunch, their Teddy and of course, sunhat, sunscreen and a water bottle.  We are planning a fun filled day of games and activities.   Hopefully by then the weather will have settled down but just in case we have the Tuesday as a postponement date.
