Curriculum Report

If you are interested in finding out more about what our students are learning then please take a look at our curriculum reports page.  Our latest report is on our Term 2 2014 Science Unit on light and sound energy.

Spelling Success

On Saturday 13 September four of our students represented Te Totara at the Great Waikato Spelling Bee.  There were around 230 students and 58 schools in the event. 
Cooper W came first in the Year 5 section and third overall (including the Year 6 students).  He won a medal and some prize money.  Congratulations Cooper!
The superb results from each of our students - Jordana, Cooper J, Anna and Cooper W - meant that we were also the winning school in the primary competition.  We received $200 prize money, a trophy and each of the students got a medal.  Well done spellers!  We are proud of your efforts.

 Ra Houses

If you've been in the Ra pod recently you will have seen the amazing work being done on creating model houses.  Our Te Totara Times reporters have explained what is going on.
