Chocolate Sales

In the last two weeks, there has been a roar of exciting squeals from the juniors about thrilling chocolate sales.

Chocolate sales is one of the most dramatic events, because last year the person who sold the most boxes in the school won a HP Chromebook! This year it’s a new bicycle.

There was a box of chocolates to sell for every FAMILY.

Inside the chocolate box were all the products from the Cadbury company. There were three Caramels, three Black Forest, three Crunchie, three Milk Chocolates, three Moro Bars, four Dreams, four Perky Nanas, three Picnics, three Orange-flavoured Twirls and three Time-out big-sized chocolate bars. Each were two dollars, while there were thirty chocolate bars.

At assembly, Mr Bayly ( our principal ) made a lucky draw for the first few people; and that was really intriguing. “Rugby Balls for the six people who get their name drawn out” he announced and everyone cheered blissfully. Then it was time for the moment of truth....who would win the bike for the most boxes sold?

This was a fun fundraiser for all the kids in this school.

Lloyd Elsmore Swimming
by Nimrit

The year 3-6 students are having swimming lessons for 7 weeks at Lloyd Elsmore every Friday.

We travel by bus to the pools. The bus is really nice because it had heaters but sometimes I get annoyed by the noise others make.

Each class is booked in to a different time slot. There are three stages of swimming: level 1, is for people that aren’t very good in doing different styles, level 2, is for kids who are in the middle swimmers and level 3 is for expert swimmers who can swim 2 or more laps without touching the bottom of the pool.

There are three really nice instructors and they help you learn different swim styles. It’s really fun to learn different swim styles. It’s a great way to learn how to swim confidently and everyone likes the lessons and the juniors can’t wait to start swimming at Lloyd Elsmore.

Recently, Rangitoto team went on an amazing trip to Ambury Farm. The reason they visited the farm was to learn about different types of  materials and fibres.

First they went to a barn and played an entertaining matching game. They had some photos and plastic bags with all sorts of hair fibres.

Next they went to the shearing shed and watched a farmer shear the sheep's wool off. After they finished watching the sheep,they were lucky and they got to go down the sheep chute.
