You can find it by clicking on the menu button at the top of the home page, titled 'Online - Symbaloo', and follow the link on that page till you get to it.

I'd love to hear from you if you have any other suggestions of great child friendly websites you and your whanau use at home that your child would like added?

Happy Wednesday!

Hi All,

I hope you've had a happy and safe holiday.  We're all looking forward to getting started again in Term 3.
For technology this term we are going to be using cardboard boxes.  It would be great if you can save some of your clean cardboard boxes and send them to school with your child, so that we can make a start in week 1.

Many thanks

Miss K
