Genomics Hui Day

Wow what an amazing day we have all had! Students from Glen Innes Primary and Glenbrae came to visit us this morning so we could share our Genomics learning with one another and compete for prizes!

We started with a mihi, karakia and waiata to set up the day, before we got split up into groups. There were students from each school in all of the groups.

After introducing ourselves it was time to start talking about Genomics! Every student presented one aspect of their learning to their group. We were really proud of our students as everyone had the courage to share.

Then finally we had a competition, similar to mathletics. We had to answer a science question and then run to the panel to check if it was correct before moving on to the next question. It was great seeing everyone working together to get the answers.

We would like to thank Jannie and Thierry for organising such a fantastic day!

    WOW! Looks like you had a great time mixing with some other schools. This reminded me of when our school competed in Westamaths, which is a maths competition. I really like how you included some photos.
