As they begin their final year at Bayfield, year 6 students are ready to take on the leadership responsibilities across the school.  Developing their growing independent skills, Puriri students  work on genius hour projects and collaborative inquiries alongside the core curriculum (reading, writing and maths.) By years end they are ready to meet the challenge of intermediate school with so many happy memories of their years at Bayfield.

Tiritiri Matangi Island Trip

To inform our term 1 inquiry we are exploring Tiritiri Matangi Island in the Hauraki Gulf. One of New Zealand’s oldest island sanctuaries, Tiritiri Matangi is brimming with wildlife rarely seen on the mainland, so students can gain first-hand knowledge of these threatened species and our country’s conservation history.

One of the highlights year six is EOTC week spent at Shakespear lodge in Whangaparoa. Along with the wonderful outdoor challenges including climbing, orienteering, target shooting and swimming, students develop and practice valuable independence skills that a week away from home brings.
