What an amazing day!
So many children participating in Lamb and Calf day and so many fabulous people here to support our school!
The weather turned on a fabulous day for showcasing our animals today. The time, effort and dedication that the children and parents have put into their animals is outstanding.
The PTA of Auroa School ran an awesome auction, including battens up, raffles, with great food and drinks.
Thank you to the Auroa School PTA and the support of the district!
Here we are in our new classroom.
We are buddy reading and also preparing for our school lamb and calf day.
We made our school mascots, clay farm animals, photography, digital flag image and an observational drawing of farm machinery.

Wow! What a daunting task.
Started at 9.00am organising my old room by taking all the work off the walls and unpacking the cupboards. Thank you to Miss Davidson who helped out!
After Mr and Mrs Chittenden, Mr Webb and Mr Spice arrived we started to move all the furniture and euipment over to the new room 5.
Just after we started we had some wonderful help also from Ivanah, Keifer, Astin, Quade, Finn, Jordan, Riley, Jos, Jake, Brylee, Caridy, Mcallum, Renee and Bronwyn.
I went to check on the progress of our new classroom build today. There were many people on a mission trying to achieve their goals in completing our classroom by Saturday.
Will it be complete? I hope so, as I am moving in at 10 am with the help of teachers and parents. We have such an awesome community!
