Each term at Te Uki Ou school students partake in an enrichment programme called Funky Friday.

 

This is where each student gets to choose an activity they would like to do from a selection of different learning activities.

Staff and some parents get involved offering topics like painting, dance, nature appreciation, sketching, carpentry, languages, drumming and first aid.

Some students chose to create papier mache projects making cats, swords, shields and birdhouses.

The year seven and eight students have been researching the Cook Islands as one of their projects and have researched each of the Pa Enua, and the information has helped create the school’s new mural.

Students in the Kota’a class are learning about the reef and tropical fish. Each of them chose a fish to draw and paint, exploring watercolours.

Yesterday many students took time to adorn and create hairstyles for the school’s ‘crazy hair day’.
