Special Events in Term 1

Apr 20, 2018 | Wētā - Year 4 blog

Hi parents,


I thought I’d take a moment to share with you some of the special events we had in Term 1.


ASB Get Wise Session


In early March we had a representative of the ASB Get Wise programme, Jadyn, take the years 3 and 4’s for a session.
The objective of the session was to improve the student’s financial understanding i.e. how money works, real money vs digital funds etc.

It was an upbeat, engaging lesson that the students learned a lot from. I wouldn’t trust them with your credit cards just yet though… ; )

Reptile Park Visit


On March 15th, Wentworth Primary visited the Reptile Park at Ti Point, Leigh.


For many of us it was our first visit. It certainly was for me, and I was impressed with the place. The students were able to get up close and personal with a number of reptiles (though we did keep a healthy distance from the alligator).

Teddy Bear’s Picnic
On March 23rd we had our Teddy Bear’s Picnic. It was great to see the splashes of colour and the variety of stuffed toys. I didn’t bring my teddy bear to school because he suffers from social anxiety ; )
The picnic was a fundraiser for the Kiwis for Kiwi charity and $240.00 was raised.

Year 4 – 6 Camp

The major event of this Term! It may have been at the regional park, but it was certainly no walk in the park: running, sliding, swimming, diving, shooting, flaming, climbing, kicking…all the intense verbs!


The Year 4’s coped with it all admirably. I’m sure it stretched them all in one capacity or another, and I’m sure they won’t forget it in a hurry.
