On Wednesday 22 June a group of eight Year 5 and 6 students went to the Epro8 Challenge held at Maeroa Intermediate. Epro8 stands for ‘Engineer, Problem Solve , Innovate’.  At the challenge the two Aberdeen teams of four were competing against seven other school teams.  There were tasks to complete in a set time and the teams needed to construct, problem solve and work together to complete these tasks to gain points.  One of the teams, the Aberdeen Firesparks, constructed a working crane which gained them enough points to come 2nd overall.  The Aberdeen Dynamos showed perseverance constructing their crane and competed very well also.  Well done to Alma, Stevie-lee, Dylan, Raihan, Kennedy, Blake, Oliver and Aiden.

This week in assembly we celebrated Pink Shirt Day.  Celebrated annually around the world, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007, when two students took a stand against bullying, mobilising their whole school, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.  We have celebrated Pink Shirt Day in New Zealand since 2009. Staff celebrated this day by wearing pink to school today.
