Greetings representing the different cultures in our room
Lets see if you can identify each one
we've added colours to help you
We extend our apologies to all visitors to our page
but after overcoming technical difficulties we are now able to access our photos and share our learning thus far
One of the first challenge for our class was to establish a brand name that we will use to identify our room for 2016.
After strenuous discussions, brainstorms and research, our name was decided by vote
It came down to three finalists - Soaring Dragons, Soaring Albatrosses and Techno Ninjas
Soaring Dragons - Soaring is from our school motto. Dragons are mythical creatures who are very strong, powerful, and can also fly
Soaring Albatrosses - Soaring from the school motto. Albatross is a magnificent bird which is also native to NZ
Techno Ninjas - Techno comes from the word Technology as our students want to learn how to effectively use Technology tools. Ninjas - come through popularity from the Vodafone Ninjas and students wants to be technologically advanced.
With an overwhelming majority of votes
became our brand name with a long term goal of students becoming Technology Savvy
Students were also involved in selecting the pictures for our logo.
So here's our final product
Three students also collaborated to create a chant for our class
