Not quite sure why this is called a road race given the amount of grass but the effort on the faces of our runners tell the whole story. Well done to everyone and especially to our youngest member of the school who was 3rd in her category. Well done Indi!

What a great day everyone had at the Weetbix Tryathalon in Palmerston North. The weather was fine and there was a super atmosphere. Well done to all of the Makuri learners who participated and to the family members who were there to support their young people.

We held the first Open Day for 2017 and had a terrific response from those in the community with preschoolers and also parents who already have learners at Makuri School. The parents had great fun with some of the equipment, finding out that it's not really 'child's play'.

We worked hard to make sure that our limericks were funny but it was quite hard.
There once was a doctor from Plip,
who failed to learn how to flip.
He tripped on a ball,
bounced off a big wall
and kissed his boss on the lips.
There once was a boy called Matt
who kept a banana under his hat.
He slipped on a peel,
landed under a wheel
and ended up feeling quite flat.
Once there was a man called Jack
who slipped over and hurt his back.
He landed in the pool, not looking very cool
and now he's got a date with an ice pack.
