Kia ora to our Global Read Aloud Buddy Class!

Hi there!

We're excited to be connecting with you as we read "One for the Murphys" together. We are currently putting together a movie for you to watch to learn a little bit about us but while you wait you might like to watch this clip which Hana (who is in 8C) created for her passion project. This is a huge project we do in Year 8 about something we are passionate about and it'll give you a wee look at Selwyn House School.

We hope you enjoy it! The music is by Jamie McDell, a New Zealand singer that we like a lot. What sort of music do you like? What is your favourite song at the moment? Just for fun, could each of you write the title of your favourite song in the comments below so we can compare. Remember to tell us your first name and the song title and artist if you know it. Thanks!
