Kaia, Taufa, Henry and Watson decorating Room 4's Duffy Book Box from "Duffy Books in Homes."
We are very fortunate and grateful as a Duffy school to receive free books from "The Alan Duff Charitable Foundation" better known as '"Duffy Books in Homes." This helps promote the love and joy for reading at home and at school.
The guest speaker for our Duffy Role Model assembly was Joe Hunter from Athletics New Zealand. Joe Hunter is a professional athletics coach and coaches hurdlers. His work as a coach has taken him around the world assisting athletes preparing for competitions. Joe has previously worked as a sports scientist and has a PhD in sports bio-mechanics. Joe enjoys working with young people and having a positive influence on their lives.
Thank you Joe Hunter for being our Duffy Role Model guest speaker and sharing with us the importance of reading. Thank you also to Room 7 and Matua Isacc for teaching our school new actions to the Duffy Song.
