Our whanau groups enable siblings to work and share in learning experiences alongside other students of various backgrounds, ages and levels.These groups are about getting to know each other, helping and supporting each other and having lots of fun. We meet 3 or 4 times a term and share common experiences that celebrate and promote strengths and interests of group members. Have a look at some of the exciting things we do during our whanau times.

Yuuummmmm - scones for lunch!
Whanau Manaaki experimented with making whipped cream to complete our jam scones. Everyone agreed that scones with jam and cream are . . . "YUM!"
We learned that the more you mix the cream the stiffer it gets, so it turns from a liquid to a solid.
We did some 'kitchen science' research and learned that cream has lots of fat globules. By beating the cream with a whisk or electric mixer, the coating around the fat globules wears down and allows the fat to stick together making it more solid. If we kept mixing, it would turn into butter!
