Today Room 5 / 6 and 14 presented their collaborative tech projects by holding a steampunk fashion show. For the last four weeks of tech, they have been working in groups to create a steampunk outfit and persona. The results were amazing. Here are the videos of the students from Room 5. Kino ke koe!
This week in New Zealand is conservation week. This is really important as we have so many amazing and unique birds and plants that are under threat due to pests. We are learning about the pests that threaten our native species and have signed up to be part of the ‘Squawk Squad’ – the nationwide conservation project that is being run to help educate students about the importance of conservation. One of the ways we can help our native animals is to gather sponsorship for traps and anyone can help us. I have included the link for the information form that students were given yesterday that has all the details – it can all be done online. So any visitors, if you would like to help, please do.
Here is also the link that provides all the information about Squawk Squad.
Well with an EXTREMELY busy time ahead of us for Term 4, I think it would be a great idea to reflect on what you did during the holidays. I am looking forward to hearing what you got up to during the past two weeks. Create your own post on your blog. If you have photos or videos to add that would awesome. I’d also like you to write about what you are really looking forward to this term.
I spent a lot of time with horses and in the rain:
These are the two students from Room 5 who went through to the school Showcase and performed in front of the school this afternoon:
They were both FABULOUS! Room 5 were very proud.
Here are a couple more videos of the very talented students in Room 5. First up are the amazing gymnastic skills of Larissa, Georgia and Seannah. We can see why they won the Top School Gymnastics competition two weeks ago.
Then we have Chloe and Emily making slime.
This year for showcase we had some interesting acts and performances. Only two acts could go through to the school showcase which will be held on the last day of the term. Here is one of the acts, that was going to be shown, but had to be cut due to numbers.
Logan, Patrick and Tim have also posted their video that they made to show their shooting prowess on Black Ops 2. Check out the link below:
For the last technology rotation of this year, year 8 students are starting on their collaborative projects. To get some inspiration, they were taken by the Technology teachers to Steampunk HQ in town. I also went down and here are some photos of what they saw to inspire them. I can’t wait to see what Room 5 students create.

We were so lucky today to have the WBHS Pasifica group come and preform for us in preparation for the Polyfest festival next week in Dunedin. It was great to see so many past students of OIS in the group.
