On Wednesday 2 December the Matawhero Team had a fabulous time learning about being fire wise and having a look at the fire truck. A big thanks to the firemen from the Chartwell Fire Station.
On 18 September we had a Wacky Hair Day to fundraise money for our Jump Jam team to go to the Nationals in Christchurch.
Wow, what a lot of mud! A huge congratulations to our wonderful Cluster Cross Country Team who represented Te Totara School on Thursday 3 September. It really was a tough battle, the children were well prepared with all runners putting in a fantastic effort in their race.
On 9 August 2015 students from Matawhero and Orion were very lucky to hear Sally Sutton read from her award-winning books and answer questions about her writing. Before she read her book 'Construction' she talked with the children about what we wear when we are constructing things.
On 30 June we held our annual cross country. Everyone gave it their best and had a fantastic day.
On 18 June the farmer let his cows onto the field beside the school and the students enjoyed watching them run in.
On 12 March our cricket team represented South Africa at the Mini World Cup, complete with Hashim Amla beards.
Our proud Principal Mr Sheedy announced our 2015 Te Totara Leaders on Friday 27 February. Thirty-seven students were selected and received a badge that they will wear with pride.
