Art Work

Kia ora whanau and friends,

For the past three weeks, the children have been working on their art work to hang on the walls of our classroom. The artwork is a side on portrait of their faces and inside this picture they have drawn pictures of their interests and hobbies. Some have already completed this to a very high standard and the remainder of children are almost there. We can't wait to have them up on our walls for everyone to see! =)
