School Proposals



What next for our school? The sandpit has been completed. What do you think should be built or created to make Mangaroa a better place for students. 

Draw up a plan. Make a list materials  that might be needed. Think about and estimate how much it would cost.

Lunchtime Sport

·        Plan a three week rotation of a lunchtime sport of your choice.  Make sure you include rules, umpires, a draw and resources.

Start up a club

School Garden Development

·        How can we improve our school garden?

·        Draft out a design of how we could extend our school garden.  What could we grow? What else could be included in the garden area?  Tables?  Art work?  Approach an outdoor/hardware centre for pricing.

How else could we improve our school?
