RSS - Room 1B News

Kia ora koutou, I am Matua Olly and it is my privilege to teach Room 1B for 2022.

We make the most of all the learning opportunities that we have been able to undertake. Some of these include hydrotherapy at the pools, gymnastics at MIGs, and we have recently started a PMP PE program in the Activity Center. Setting personal goals has been a priority for fitness this year, so that we can help students gain more mobility, as well as getting out and about in the community and enjoying some of the wonderful walks that we have here in Rotorua.

This year we are undertaking a photography module for our S.P.E.C learning. S.P.E.C. is a learning platform that allows our students to gain a level 1 NZQA qualification while undertaking fun and meaningful learning opportunities. This has fit in well with our term 1 theme of discovering our rohe (local area) through the lens or a camera.
