Friday 28th May, 2010

Friday is show and tell day at Next Generation and our friend Cole bought in his mask! The children all discussed when a mask like this should be worn, usually in hospital and at the doctors. Joel says "When I was really little and I got sick I had to wear this mask and when I woke up I had jelly and icecream and I had to wear my monster truck pyjamas and I got much better." So we learnt that wearing this mask wasn't that scary after all!

Rachel and the Teaching Awards

Today Rachel is flying to Wellington for the National Excellence in Teaching Awards. Rachel is one of the finalists. Thursday morning Rachel will speak to the panel of Judges. They are looking to select one person for the 2010 Award. From there she will go to Paliment for lunch and to receive her award as a finalist. In a few weeks we will find out if she gets the top award. Please send you best wishes to Rachel by adding a comment. This is a fantastic acheivement for Rachel and is a reflection of the quality of teachers at Next Generation. Have a great weekend Rachel and Ernie, we are so proud of you, take lots of photos and know that we will be thinking of you at 10am, speech time and about 12.30 awards time.

PS, You won't trip, and if you do we love you anyway.
