It's been another fantastic year of learning and working together.
As always I have been blown away by children's ideas, observations, creation, knowledge and interest.
Thanks to the many parents who have helped out in various ways this year - with trip supervision / transport, with equipment, with knowledge and contacts. I appreciate your support.
I look forward to working with students who are at Whangaparaoa Primary again next year. I will organise a timetable in January and publish it when it's finalised. Quest will start in week 3 (the week starting 18th Feb). It will be on a Tuesday or Wednesday again at this stage. Likely to be the same format as this year - year 5&6 in the first blocks, Year 3&4 in the middle blocks, and year 2 in the last block. I will be busy looking at identification of new or younger students too in term 1.
To those leaving Whangaparaoa Primary - good luck at your new schools. For the year 6's - I look forward to hearing about you in the future - hopefully you keep in touch.
Year 6's got a little story and a Christmas decoration from me this week - hopefully something to think about and to remember their time at Whangaparaoa Quest in years to come.
Here is the story I gave them. It's a little story taken from the thought-provoking book 'The Monk who sold his Ferrari' by Rob Sharma. It's worth thinking about!
