Globetrotting with the Awesome 1's....(

One this weeks (week 9) task for the Student Blogging Challenge was to identify places one would like to visit. The Awesome 1's went about brainstorming their idas and gave reasons why. Room 1 is beginning to understand just how big and great our world is and how isolated we as a country are - I mean to say, New Zealand is at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean just above Antarctica (or near the bottom of the world).

Enjoy our Photopeach presentation as we globe trot around the world.


The Awesome 1's places and why...

Brazil - Wiremu and Caleb WA (See the statue of Jesus and enjoy carnival)
Antarctica - Natalie (See the wildlife and ice)
Hawaii - Ashan and Chloe (enjoy the warm weather and beaches)
Florida USA - Caleb E (See the waterparks and Nasa)

Senior Camp...

The Awesome 1's,  along with Rooms 2 and 3 went to Raukawa Adventure Camp for 3 days this month. They were well prepared for stepping outside their comfort zone and trying activities such as abseiling, rock climbing, archery, low rope confidence course, the flying kiwi and the hillside water slide.

The food was fantastic and the students were always feeling full from all the fruit and home baking between meals. All the Year 5 and 6 students who attended had a great time and felt they had achieved a lot by the end of the camp. Well done Carlton senior students on performing well and having a good time.

Enjoy some great shots of our awesome camp....

Wow! What a busy year 2013 has been for sport at Carlton School. We have had teams in the following codes:
-Basketball, Softball, Teeball, Athletics, Cross-Country, Hockey, Soccer, Rugby, Rippa Rugby, Netball, Volleyball, Tough Kid Challenge, Cricket, Swimming and Equestrian. 22 of the Awesome 1's competed in the varying codes this year and have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We have also seen 13 of our Carlton students achieve Wanganui age group representation (State representative if in the USA).

Here is a snapshot of some of the sports played this year with our amazing athletes - who knows, maybe we have some future New Zealand and World champions at our great school - here's hoping!

Student Blogging Challenge - Week 7 -Connections

The Awesome 1's have sat down and given Week 7's challenge a lot of thought. How are we connected? How is our teacher connected? Are we connected Mafia style? NOOOO - not really!  Well, we don't think so. We have come to the conclusion that technology plays a big part in how we are and came to being connected. The Awesome 1's have decided to create a PhotoPeach presentation showing 'Connections' over time. Please enjoy as we feel pictures say a lot!
