Even though we have only been back at school for six weeks, Year 8 have already been extremely busy with all our new responsibilities. A couple of weeks ago, we had our annual Swimming Sports held at Christ College's swimming pool. It was a fun filled event for the Year 4-8 classes. In that same week we had an art workshop with Wendy Duggan and we learnt how to draw portraits. We have also completed a topic study about Being A Great Leader and are now onto an English topic looking at Sophisticated Picture Books. As for the rest of the term, we have a visit Rehua Marae, Independent Swimming Sports and a visit from Miles Kaukau to learn about Maori art and carving.
