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.
