This morning Hannah's Mum brought her puppy to school. The puppy was scared of all the children because she has never been to school before. Her name is Eva and she is 8 weeks old. Tonight she is going to get a new bed to sleep in by the fire.

This morning the whole school met down at the hall to walk to school with Hamish Carter and Debbie Tanner. It was raining a little bit but we didn't mind. Mathew Arnold played the bagpipes. When we got to school we went to our classes and called the roll. Then we all went into the library and sang the National Anthem. Mrs Gulbransen welcomed our guests. Hamish and Debbie spoke to us. Mr Hitchcock presented us with an award for being the only school in New Zealand to have all it's pupils walking to school every day in Walk to School Week.
We went into the hall and had a yummy Sanitarium breakfast.
We could choose Weetbix, Ricies, Cornflakes or Fruity Weetbix. We could also have bananas or apples. We all had an Up and Go drink of milk.
After breakfast we had our class photo taken with Hamish and Debbie.
Then we sang Happy Birthday to Hamish for his birthday tomorrow. Then our guests had to leave to catch a plane.
We had a lucky prize draw. Hannah from our class was lucky again this year. She got a Weetbix towel.
When we got back to class we all got prizes.

We have been learning about why we have a day off school on Anzac Day.
We made Anzac biscuits. We used the oven in the new hall for the very first time. After lunch we shared our biscuits with our buddy class Room 9. They were sketching poppies. Their sketches were very very good.

Two Flat Stanleys came to Brightwater School from Elm Hill School, Vermont in USA. One from Henry and one from Colin. We took some photos on the playground. I took a photo of Abby and Sebastian. We are going to take them home with us for the holidays. They will have many adventures.
