Enfys LCOU Hayz Hendriks - first book

NEW Raglan Readers

A big welcome to our students getting out their first EVER book from Te Rapunga! It might be their first book,  because they’ve just shifted to Raglan OR maybe they have now turned 6 years old! What independent responsible young people!

Book Reviews are happening!

Find a good book for yourself, by reading what your schoolmates have said in their book reviews. Come and see E3’s photos and booklet on display. More reviews are going up on the wall above the picture books each day, thanks to some  librarians and helpers, including  Paris, Timara, Ayla and Keely.Timara- Princess and Foal

Pictures of Touring Art on display

Come and choose which piece of art you want to see ‘for real’, by looking at the pictures of the NZ ART Roadshow on display in the foyer.  Choosing ART you admire is as varied as what kind of books each person likes! When D3 visited  each picked their favourite picture – 19 students chose 15 different artists. This tells me, each student has an individual taste in art and books even from Year 3!

ANZAC Remembrance Wall 

Gosh this is special.Our giant poppy is almost complete with your messages and reflections about the meaning of ANZAC. Come in and see it, together with our collection of ANZAC books, from picture books to novels to senior non-fiction resources.

Ka maumahara – we remember.


“E for Encyclopedia – E for Everything!”
