What a privilege to be part of CurrClick Live

Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!

This week has been absolutely wonderful and I feel blessed to be homsechooling to enjoy being a part of our children's educational journey.

Tuesday, Tama 1 was back into Mandarin.  This is the first time in which I couldn't sit with him the whole time because tamāhine 1 had a camp with Mrs. Rhodes.  (Tama 1 was registered also, so he sat in after Mandarin.)

From what I heard of tama 1 he sounded fine in Mandarin.  I'm so pleased he kept up his practice while Mrs Hong was in China.  He fell back into the routine with ease, but that comes with confidence from having done the work eh!!

On Tuesday and Wednesday, tama 1 had the honour of taking part in the:
 His role:
I had to get a photo sent through in time for the Open House, so we waited for the sun to come up after day 2 of camp with Mrs Rhodes and at 8 o'clock I got this quick photo of our handsome tama:
Not even 10½ yet, and our eldest son is an Ambassador, speaking to parents around the world!!!  Pretty amazing huh?!

I can only imagine how he must feel at his age to have had this opportunity.

Every single Ambassador did themselves proud, their parents proud and most definitely, they did CurrClick proud.  They all spoke honestly about their experiences in CurrClick Live classes with such tremendous conviction over two days.  May they treasure this time for as long as possible.

Such an honour and a privilege. Thank you to the teachers who nominated for tama 1 and thank you CurrClick for such an amazing Campus environment.

Today we had one of our great classes -  Rhythm & Ear.  Having missed Hymns of Faith yesterday, we made sure we were present today!!

Ms Lindsey has such a wonderful style of teaching that the children aren't afraid to try things when called upon - especially on microphone that is.  Another enjoyable aspect to the class is being able to share it with friends we have made from past classes; one of whom just so happens to be an Ambassador as well!!!! - deservedly so too, I hasten to add.  I was so proud of all the students who were in class today.

Tama 1 and tamāhine 1 were up first with their live practice and they both presented beautifully.  I looked on with pleasure as they put in their best efforts, and I know I've mentioned this before, but having encouraging comments from fellow students in the chat box really makes a big difference.  Everyone is keen to reciprocate with positive comments for their friends which is lovely because it keeps the mood positive, therefore the experience of presenting on microphone (or webcam whenever necessary) is not so nerve-racking.

With clashes in schedule over the last two weeks, we joined the Magic Treehouse Club meeting this week.  Book #5, and if you know the chapter books, you'll know it's about Ninjas.  Here's our kids straight after class making themselves look like Ninjas.  They made a few hand weapons too and played Ninjas for the rest of the day.
I'll have to leave it there because I need to get some rest.  It's a 5.30am start tomorrow.  Tamāhine 1 has Reader's Theatre with Mrs Rhodes - she adores Mrs Rhodes!!!  Then we have the final Hymns of Faith, followed immediately by Zoology.

Thanks for dropping by
