Construction at Hay Park School

Our old library was a leaky building and wasn't a safe place. At the end of Term 1, our library, staff room and resource room was demolished. New building has begun. Today we had a cement truck and a cement pumping truck come into our school. The pump truck has some really long pipes that go high up in the air. The cement comes out of the pipe like a hose.

Over the next six weeks we will be having sessions with Courtney from Auckland Football. We had our first session today and played capture the flag. It was very funny to watch, especially when we had to have our hands and feet on the ground! After we had played warm up games we had some games of four-a-side football.

We are also building online relationships within the Ako Hiko cluster of school by commenting on others blog posts.
