What great dancing! We are impressed. Thank you for leaving comments on our blog. Yes netball goals are called baskets and it is only girls in our netball team just now. There are some boys that would like to join but we are having a big push on clubs for girls called "Girls on the Go"!

Dear Tamaki Today,
That is some awesome dancing! It looks like you had to practice many times because everyone knew exactly what steps to do! The first graders (6 and 7 year olds)at my school are studying Australia and New Zealand so I'll have to pass your blog onto their teachers! Great Work!

I loved your Cook Island Dance, Red House - well done! I'm sure you'll do really well in your Cultural Festival.
I've also been looking at your Weather Pixie - here in Scotland our weather is quite a bit colder to yours, in fact it's freezing!! Mr Webb has already been on our blog - perhaps some of you other students might like to have a look around and leave us a comment. We're just new to this blogging game!

Hi Guys,
I have just logged on and couldn't continue to another post until I had told you how wonderful I thought your performance was. I teach children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and we are having a school concert on the
10th of December. I have been trying to teach them how to smile when they are performing. I am going to show them this video on our Smart Board on Monday, because a picture tells a thousand words and you all looked so happy performing. It was
a glorious colourful feast for the eyes and ears. Well done

I have heard several of our Pacific Island students talk about your students dancing. They really feel that they are missing out on some of their heritage. I am glad that they can watch the videos and get to see some of what their culture entails.
