Mangatangi School Pool was officially opened today.  Thank you to everyone who helped get us this amazing pool.

It was great to see so many people there today.







Tabloid Sports was lots of fun.  We really enjoyed the Tug of War and getting our faces painted. We were exhausted by the end of the day.


Term 1 has been flying by and we've been busy making new friends, swimming, having triathlon as well as working hard at our learning. Here are some snapshots of what we've been doing so far.

Term 2 Learning


This term our big question was 


How do farms benefit our community?



 We fed cows, made milkshakes and visited a farm to answer some of our questions.

To present our information Room 5 decided to create a large farm which is sitting in our library now for people to look at.
