Busy start to year for Hin­uera pupils

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

It has been a pos­i­tive start to the year for Hin­uera School. The year 5 and 6 stu­dents have en­joyed a chal­leng­ing and ex­cit­ing week on camp at Aon­gatete Lodge and came home with many sto­ries of their learn­ing and laugh­ter over that pe­riod.

Swim­ming sea­son was a great suc­cess with the new hot wa­ter heat pump keep­ing the pool at a cosy 28 de­grees Cel­sius right into April. This made pre­par­ing for swim­ming sports and the school triathlon very pleas­ant for all.

A visit by the Bal­loons Over Waikato team in April was a won­der­ful event near the end of the term.

The school is look­ing for­ward to an­other great term of learn­ing, with many ex­cit­ing things planned.

That in­cludes Cot­ter Cup Day, which is hosted by the Hin­uera Rugby and Sports Club, and has al­ways be­ing a great event to be in­volved in. That event will take place on Wed­nes­day, June 5. ‘‘There’s never a dull mo­ment around schools th­ese days’’ said Hin­uera prin­ci­pal Dean McDon­nell.

‘‘So this term will be full of learn­ing and ex­cite­ment for sure.’’

This all fits in well with the school motto of Learn­ing and Grow­ing – some­thing that ‘‘Hinni Kids’’ and teach­ers are en­cour­aged to do each day.

Green school: Plant­ing trees and look­ing af­ter the en­vi­ron­ment is an im­por­tant part of life at Hin­uera School.

Fair play:

Hin­uera kids learn about hav­ing fun and play­ing as a team at the school’s football fes­ti­val.
