The Lighthouse


Welcome to "The Lighthouse," where children shine! Our switched on learners in Room 5 spend their days sharing bright ideas and working collaboratively to be 'the best they can be.' Just like Mr. and Mrs. Grinling of the "Lighthouse Keeper" books, written and illustrated by New Zealanders Ronda and David Armitage, we learn in the most 'Ruahine Rockers' way possible. Our school values- resilience, open to learning, collaboration, kindness, enthusiasm, respect and self management help us become active learners and wonderful kind children. We love maths,singing, sports, literacy, art, science, languages, technology, playing, building....we just love learning!!!  Mrs. Gibbs loves helping children succeed in a happy, colourful and positive space- with lots of fun and laughter thrown in. The coolest thing is that every single one of us is like pounamu, precious and beautiful.Tū māia au ki te mahi, tū rangatira au ki te ao!
