Kahikatea – Yr 8

Yr 7/8 Teacher

Teacher – Ruth Pannet

This term will be full of lots of ‘lasts’ for our Year 8s, as they wrap up their Primary School journey and prepare for High School and beyond! It will be their ‘last’ LRS Pet Day, Athletic Sports Day, Parihaka Day and final assembly, among other things.

The aim is to make this term fun, memorable and purposeful, so that the children can finish primary school full of positivity and confidence.

We’ve welcomed Chelsea to our class this term. She’s had a fantastic start and settled into our class and routines remarkably well.

This term, our Identity focus will take us in the direction of ‘New Zealanders who have put our country on the world map’. We will look first at NZ scientists who have made contributions to world-wide science knowledge, then widen our scope to include other domains: the arts, sport, politics, etc…Ruth Pannett
