Last week Mrs Campbell and her class contributed to our school by planting some plants in our school gardens (with a bit of help from Mr Wilson). Mrs Campbell organises our school for the Paper for Trees programme where our school recycles paper and we are given native trees and plants for our school. The new plants are busy growing in gardens close to both the Orkney and Lee Street entrances to our school. Feel free to have a look at their handywork. So a big thank you to Rm 9 and Mrs Campbell for contributing to our school, the gardens look great!
This is a poem about our recent camp at Lakes Ranch.

Today at assembly we had a special guest. His name was Challium Poppy, he is an opera singer. Challium began singing in a church choir at the age of 4, moving to Austria when he was 16 to train as an opera singer. He has sung all over Europe and Canada and now lives here in Mount Maunganui in New Zealand.
Today Challium sang us an Italian song, it was all about love. Did you know that Opera was created in Italy 400 years ago?
I think we were really lucky to have someone like Challium give up his time to sing for us here at Mount Primary.
