Amber has a passion for reading and makes regular visits to the Hastings Library.

During an E-asttle writing task, Amber was given a picture and challenged to create her own story. With great enthusiasm, Amber crafted an engaging narrative that she shared with her reading group peers. This activity not only showcased Amber’s creativity but also fostered collaborative storytelling and sparked imagination among her peers.

Awesome work Amber, it shows your book exploring is enhancing your storytelling skills!

Maya’s recent choice of activity led her to the Haumoana Farmyard, where she immersed herself in the joy of patting goats, sheep, llamas, horses, and donkeys, forming deep connections with each animal.

This experience allowed Maya to create lasting memories and learn new skills. Interacting with animals fosters empathy, compassion, and responsibility, while also enhancing Maya’s problem-solving abilities.

Well done Maya!
