We were asked to write an editoral all about Wainuioru School for the Wairarapa News Kids page. Annika Green was selected to write the editorial and this is what she wrote:
Wainuioru School is AWESOME!!!!!!!! And this is why: We are situated 21 kilometres south-east of Masterton, in the tranquil country side. We are a rural, family orientated school, which is well supported by parents and families. Some students start at the Wainuioru playgroup which is held on a Tuesday and is next to the school. The preschoolers do lots of fun activities and they have a great playground.
There are 45 families that are a part of our school, which gives us around 80 students. We have 4 classrooms with teachers that we really look up to and who make us eager to learn. Veggie Gardens, tree nurseries, a worm farm and an orchard make us an Enviro School and the year 6 students are currently devising a waste management scheme for the school.
At our school we are supported by lots of technological devices; 40 different computers and laptops are spread throughout the school each classroom has a smart board as well as an Elmo.
We have just finished a medieval study where some visitors came and showed us authentic medieval weapons and armour had made themselves. They showed us swords, shields, chain mail and knights clothing. Then they demonstrated a sword fight. It was really scary. The best thing about our study was that we finished it with a medieval feast where everyone dressed up and ate with their hands; there were even pig’s heads, EWW!
Wainuioru School is a great environment for all students where we have wonderful learning experiences in a fun and safe environment.
Wainuioru School is awesome.
