Our School

Here is a video of our school that Tegan and Zoe made for our quadblogging friends. They used imovie to put the photos and videos together.
Well done girls! You have done a great job!

What questions do you have for us about our school?

    From Tegan

  4. Hi Tegan,
    An Area School is a school in a small country area that goes from Year 0 - Year 13. We have 132 students in our whole school and only 63 students in our Year 0-Year 6 age group, so your school is ALOT bigger than ours!
    Is there more than one school in Hamilton or do all of the children go to your school?

  5. Does it snow where you live? What do you like to do for fun on the playground? What is grown in your garden? We have a garden at school, too. We grow tomatoes, sunflowers, and corn, though it's winter right now. Great job on the video!

    Thank you for your comment!
    It does not snow at all here in Hamilton but it does in some areas of new zealand. It is very rare for it to snow in Hamilton. The last time it snowed I was 5 and now I am 8 and that's the only time it has snowed in my life time. It only snows in a place near Taupo. Lots of people go there in the middle of winter. We still have to wait a while for that because it is the start Autumn.On the playground we like everything there is we are even getting a new playground.In the enviro agents garden we got all sorts of plants like raspberry, tomatoes, broccoli and other things.
