On Wednesday, 22 October, Year 9 Maori students will have the opportunity to work with Terry Ryan who is a recognised expert on Maori whakapapa. Terry will be able to help students explore their family connections and history.
North and South Division Year 9 Maori students will attend in Form Time and Period 2 and West Division Year 9 students in Period 3.
The whakapapa sessions will be in the seminar room in the library and students are asked to bring a piece of paper with their mothers' maiden name (her name before she was married), names of grandparents if they know them and any information about their Marae or where their family came from if they know it, written down.
Students are also asked to bring a gold coin as a koha to thank Terry for his time.
Nga mihi nui, Mrs Sidaway
The PTA are having a spring social this year and invite all of the Burnside High School Community to a night of comedy with the Scared Scriptless improvisation team from The Court Theatre. What else do you need to know?
Get a group together (or come alone and make friends) and buy your tickets, then get ready to laugh the night away.
A mashup is just like a project. We expect you to think and plan what you are going to design/build to solve a problem or better understand your chosen subject matter. You might design/build some software/a mobile app/a machine, tell a story, use sensors to measure things, use government data to analyse and explore things or create a website for collecting/sharing information.
Visit http://mashup.codeclub.org.nz/ to register. See Mr. Creighton in X Block if interested
