A HUGE / HUGHES Thank You!!

Hi everyone
This is my last blog post.

Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful farewell you gave me on Friday.  I felt very humbled, and slightly embarrassed by the attention.

I love my gift and can't wait to go shopping!  I will shop with all of you in mind and show you what I bought when I see you next.

I am really loving the study and I it meant so much that many of you wrote cards that included your thoughts on life-long learning - WOW, you are an amazing group of learners  -and teachers.  Don't ever forget that that is what you are too - you teach your teachers as much as we teach you.  That has been one of my highlights so far this year - learning so much from all of you.

I know you are going to have an amazing year and that you will work hard for and with Mr Herring.  He has some amazing ideas to share with you and I'm hoping he'll share them with me too.  :-)

Take care and remember, no one can ever squash your dreams - only you can do that if you let someone get in your way.  Look after each other, keep living the Myross Bush Values.  Dream BIG!

Hugs and smiles
Mrs H :-) :-) :-) :-)

The Wisconsin / Myross Bush Wiki

I am so excited!  I've just had a preview of some of the keynotes being prepared to be uploaded to the wiki - they are most impressive!!  Just listening to one group explaining the Kahikatea tree and how this is where our school symbol and motto comes from and sharing with their epals what the motto is, is very heartwarming.

We can't wait to share these with you.

Vist this Wiki

Have a look at the Room 1 wiki from Grant's Braes School in Dunedin.  They have some fantastic resources on there and would love your comments.  Hopefully they will have a look around our blog - and your blogs - and leave some comments.

Have a look at the organisation and think about whether our one with Wisconsin is as fantastic.  (I know it will be once we start to add content from tomorrow - very exciting!)
