Chiswick Park Visit

Tomorrow ten students from Pounamu Atawhai are visiting Chiswick Park with Mrs Kenyon.  We are very excited to be visiting the friends we made there during the year.  We've made some afghans, shortbread and hokey pokey biscuits for them and some really cool christmas cards.  Cam has learnt two christmas carols on his guitar so we can sing to them.
 


Kind Heart Care Packets

What are we going to do without Korbyn? He, with some help from Sophia, packed another 30 care packets for Kind Hearts this week.  Thanks Korbyn. 

Kind Hearts - Peggy Purl

Our first Riverdale blanket was sewn together last week, ready to be gifted.  We were very lucky to have Jess from Peggy Purl come and visit Pounamu Atawhai and show us the blanket and tell us all about the organisation. 
We had another 70 squares to donate, knitted by a nana from school, Maryann and Mrs Kenyon.
Every blanket is made up of 35 squares and they take 4-5 hours to sew together.  What a job! We are very pleased to be part of this great cause.

Operation Christmas Shoebox

  

Thanks to the Riverdale School Community, Pounamu Atawhai have packed 15 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.  This is a worthy cause and we will be able to track the boxes, using a special bar code, to see where in the world they are sent.

A big thank you to everyone who supported this cause.
