The wonderful Michal Gray has been warming us all up on these frosty mornings with a variety of fun and fast Zumba routines. This has provided a really enjoyable way for us all to experience a physical work out and learn some new dance moves! Thanks so much Michal for your generosity and time commitment we are loving it!
We're very fortunate to be a part of the Fish in Schools programme at enrich@ILT. The aim is to give young people the opportunity to raise salmon from the egg stage to fingerlings in the school environment. The salmon eggs are supplied by Fish and Game Southland and are from the North Canterbury hatchery. We have 50 eggs in our tank and it will be up to our students to monitor their growth and the water quality.
We would like to thank Cohen and Richie from Fish and Game for setting up the salmon tank and sharing a presentation with our students.
What a way to finish off a fantastic week! Our Friday students celebrated Gifted Awareness Week by amazing us with their awesome costumes and well researched presentations.
We wish to thank all students and their families for their efforts this week. We hope you've enjoyed the video clips we've shared with you this week. We are so fortunate to have a super bunch of students at Enrich@ILT.
A huge thank you to our marvellous Thursday students for sharing their Images of Greatness as part of GAW. How fascinating to learn the passionate interests the students had and how much information they could share orally with us all. Enjoy!
The celebration of GAW continued on Wednesday with the students amazing us all with their costumes and presentations at enrich@ILT. Take a look at the amazing presentations below.
We were honoured to have some special guests make an appearance at enrich@ILT. We were also treated to some outstanding biography presentations based on famous gifted people. Congratulations to our very talented returning students.
What a fantastic start to the week! In our own response to Gifted Awareness Week our very own gifted and talented bunch came dressed as a Gifted Person of their choice. Their brief speeches about their person of choice gave wide and varied reasons behind what makes a gifted person. Thanks for your efforts kids. Enjoy the clip!
