2019 Runathon

On Wednesday 22 May, Kilbirnie School had its annual Runathon! This year the event was called the FUN and FABULOUS run... and it was exactly that!

The kids of Matairangi hub were well prepared after weeks of cross country practise.

There were many kids (and teachers!) dressed in fun costumes and afterwards everyone was treated to a sausage sizzle.

Each hub had two prizes for best dressed! Congratulations to Abby Dixon and Thomas Shortall for their creative costumes.

Each year we are always impressed by the support and encouragement the students of Matairangi Hub show towards the younger students of our school.

Another successful Kilbirnie School event!


World Day for Cultural Diversity.

On Tuesday 21 May, the world celebrates Cultural Diversity Day!

We have many different cultures in our Kilbirnie School community so we love celebrating this day each year.

We had a special assembly which gave students the opportunity to stand up and be proud of their cultures.

Room 8 made diversity hands. They focused on flags, symbols, language, mythology, landmarks, religion, food and customs!

Room 9 and 10 drew flags and practised their greetings.

Science Experiments

This term we are focusing on science!

As a hub we are running a variety of different experiments. Our goal is to start thinking like scientists and we are focusing on observing, predicting, and questioning.

Some experiments have included observing:

  • what happens when paper flowers are put on water.
  • the relationship between milk, colouring, and dish liquid. 

We are looking forward to doing many more experiments!
