Update for Friday, 1 April

Kia ora koutou,

We’ve had a fun day today with our House Colours Mufti Day taking place!

Students have gone above and beyond with dressing up in their house colours of Kōwhai – yellow, Rātā – red, Kauri – blue and Rimu – green. It’s wonderful to see all the students bright, colourful and having fun!

MRI’s Japanese Sister City – Munakata

Mt Roskill Intermediate School has had a close relationship with the Japanese city of Munakata for over 20 years. Organised through the Munakata City Council and the Board of Education in Fukuoka, Japan, students from a variety of schools in Munakata usually come to visit us in August and MRIS travel to visit them in November.

To continue to keep in touch, seeing that these exchanges have not been possible the last couple of years, a Google Meet was organised.  This took place last Friday.

Eleven students from Munakata and students from Room 25 joined in a range of activities. They introduced themselves in Te Reo, English and Japanese.  All our students viewed a short presentation with photos of our school and memories of previous visits. Students participated in a Reading lesson about “How the Kiwi lost his wings” from Mrs Colling our ESOL teacher, and they competed in a Paper, Scissors, Rock game in Japanese from our school Sensei.  We finished with a Kahoot about NZ.

We have been having exchanges for over 20 years, with our last exchange in 2019.  We are hoping to have an exchange next year in 2023.

Bike Club

Our Bike Club kicked off this week and it was great to see our students enjoying our bike track and putting it to great use!  

Bikes in Schools have secured us funding to turn this track into a pumptrack, so we look forward to seeing it’s progress over the coming months.

Ramadan starts this weekend, which is an important time of fasting for many of our students and their families. 
Ramadan Mubarak – Happy Ramadan, and have a great weekend everyone.

Ngā mihi nui
