We have the POWER!

We have the POWER to make a difference!  We have the power ...
  • to learn
  • to choose our own pathways
  • to make our own decisions
  • to help others 


We have been brainstorming ways we can help the people of Canterbury.  Last Friday our whole school dressed in red and black and brought lots of items that we hope will be useful.  This week we have been busy putting into action one of the ideas we brainstormed as a class to do some earthquake pictures to auction to raise money.  We are thinking we might put some of them on Trade Me to see how much money we can raise.  Here are some of our response art to the earthquake...



Keep an eye out for more art.  Next week we will be creating abstract art based on colours / moods - smooth and calm verses chaotic and rough.
