On Friday, Room 13 celebrated a Taonga day - a day where we brought in something that we treasure. Each of us wrote a speech and stood in front of the class with our taonga being held by a friend who supported us by standing with us at the front. Everyone spoke, even people who were scared to. We shared what our treasure was and why it was precious to us. We also shared why we chose this taonga, and what we wanted our classmates to learn about us from our taonga. We learned about Jemma and her toy rabbit 'Jessie', who was brought for her before she was born. We learned about Christian and his dad's league trophies. Christian is really proud of his dad. We saw Sam's Christmas stocking that he made with his mum. It was a really special day.
