Dance Festival

The Howick and Pakuranga Dance Festival celebrated dance with a range of local schools and students from year 1 to year 13 participating with their best dance moves.

Take a look at the videos to see all the energy, effort and fun that all the students put into their dances.

A group of our energetic junior girls got their groove on to Miley Cyrus’s song, see you again. The Junior girls will dazzle you with their dance... you will want to see them again... See you again.

The beat, rhythm and moves of Bollywood Bonanza performed by the enthusiastic Year 4-6 dancers of Pakuranga Heights School is a colourful medley of three songs. So hold on to your seat and enjoy the beat.

Bollywood Bonanza music collected from 'Move your body now' from Kismat Konnection sung by Shaan, Suhail, Hard Kaur and Aakriti Kaickar. 'Desi girl' from Dostana sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Vishal Dadlani. 'Jai ho' By The Pussy Cat Dolls sung by A.R. Rahman and Nicole Scherzinger.

Roald Dahl - The Twits

Room 6 is enjoying reading stories by Roald Dahl. We have started with reading The Twits. Have you read The Twits? We have decided to read Fantastic Mr Fox next. What is your favourite Roald Dahl story?

What is some of the mischief Mr and Mrs Twit get up to?
What prank are they going to play next?

Do the Twits show kindness and consideration?

Room 6 decided playing tricks like the Twits do on each other do not show the bee values and are not very nice. It is much better to show kindness and consideration to others.

Can you see what writing ideas we have borrowed from Roald Dahl the author of The Twits?

Can you tell us about your favourite story?
