Kia ora we are Room 6 at Foxton Beach School. Our teacher’s name is Mrs. McDonald and she really helps us learn; we all love her. Her favourite thing is reading stories to kids.

We live very close to Foxton Beach and that is the name of our village. Foxton Beach is on the West Coast of the North Island, about an hour and a half north of Wellington. Foxton Beach is a sandy beach and you are allowed to drive on it!!

We are a very small school with only seven classrooms. Because we’re so small, a lot of our families know each other and we’re a very whānau-orientated school. Lots of us have a cousin or a sibling at this school with us. We always say good morning. We’re very helpful to each other and all the kids play together – big and little. Our school is one of the schools where the Pause Breathe Smile ad was filmed and you can see our classroom in the background when all the kids cheer.

We love our sport at Foxton Beach School. We have house competitions in swimming, athletics, cross country, tug of war, rippa rugby and kia-o-rahi.

We always have to give our best at our learning. We do really cool maths and literacy. We’re not afraid to make mistakes because we know that when we make mistakes our brains grow. We are cooperative learners.

It’s going to be great getting to know you.

  1. Kia ora Team Tarānui. That’s so cool that the pause, breathe, smile video was filmed at your school. We also do pause, breathe, smile. Maybe we’ll share a photo or video of it on our blog.We also love sports. We play infinity tag, soccer, basketball and sprints. It sounds like you’re very kind to each other. One of our school values is to be respectful. We can’t wait to see what other learning you share on your blog. From Waenga Class @ New Windsor.

    1. Thank you for writing back to us. You were very kind to say Kia ora.
      We think it’s so interesting that you also do Pause, Breathe, Smile, even though you’re so far away from us.
      We liked hearing about the sports you play.
      From the things you’ve told us, you seem like a really nice class.
      Do you have a big field at your school? How many students do you have at your school?
