Tuhi Mai, Tuhi Atu

We are looking forward to being part of Tuhi Mai, Tuhi Atu once again and can't wait to meet our new blogging buddies from Waikowhai School and Park Estate School.  This is a slideshow introducing ourselves.

We love to receive feedback on our blog posts and we promise to always reply to comments. If you want to comment any of our work, we would prefer comments to be on our individual blogs, rather than on the class blog (although we'd love you to comment on our posts there too). We will put at least one new post on our individual blogs every week, so please keep visiting our blog sites. We are looking forward to reading our blogging buddies' posts and we promise to give positive, helpful feedback.


  1. Looking sharp Room 5! I can see you are set for a great year together and I look forward to keeping up with this through your blog. I have been seeing on the news that it has been very wet down your way recently. I hope you are having fun and are all safe.

    1. Thank you for your kind, positive comment, Mrs Burt. We have had a long drought so we were quite glad to see the rain, although it wasn't as wet here as in some places. We did get sent home early one stormy day, though, just in case!

  2. Kia ora Room 5,
    Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu for 2018. I am excited that your class has joined a group and I will get to check out your blog on a regular basis. My name is Tania and I am the organiser of Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu. I live in Whangarei, quite a way away from where you live in Awahono in the Grey Valley. Have any of you ever been to the North Island? Who has been the closest to Whangarei? I am SUPER IMPRESSED with your introduction to your Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu buddies and I am going to use your slides to inspire others to do the same. It is great to read about each of you and I can see some connections that I have. Like Solly, I love reading in my spare time. I like dolphins to Isabel, I am lucky that I often get to see them when we are out on our boat. I have a pool at my house to Leah and it's fantastic at the moment because it is so hot! I love going on trips to Deakyn with my friends and family. I have just been to Queenstown and it was heaps of fun. Keep up the great work everyone and I look forward to taking time to check your individual blogs too.

  3. Hi Tania
    We were delighted to read your lovely long comment - thank you.
    A few of us have visited the North Island but mainly to Auckland and Wellington. Ryan has also visited Rotorua but no one in the class has yet crossed Auckland Harbour Bridge to go further north (except for Mrs Idle who has travelled all the way up to Cape Reinga).
    Looking forward to a great blogging year with Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu!

  4. Thank you for sharing your lovely children. It was a great way to meet everyone in a n exciting manner. Did individual children use these to start their blogs this year too. It was such a colourful way to meet everyone. Thank you. Tanya Mundy Red Hill Primary

  5. Hi Tanya
    Thanks for your comment. We made this slideshow for the class blog, and individual children are meant to put their own slides on their blogs.
    Great to hear from you!
    Mrs Idle


Thank-you for your positive, thoughtful, helpful comment.
