A Typical School Day in Reefton, New Zealand
We live in a small community of about 900 on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Our school is an Area School, which means we have students from Year 1-13 (5-18 years old). There are about 200 students at our school.
We have 21 students aged 6 and 7 in our class, a mascot (a kea called Quicksilver) and two teachers.
Mrs McKenzie first came to teach in Reefton in 1983, and she takes the class for maths, literacy and art, and Mrs Webb who takes Topic, PE, Arts and handwriting.
Our school year started at the end of January and will finish for the summer on December 12.
Thanks for watching! We’ve enjoyed sharing our day with you.
Do you have any questions for us?

Haere Mai B4′s song is a song of welcome. We sing it each week at assembly, and to welcome special visitors to our school. What do you think ‘Haere Mai’ means? Can you find the words for ‘boy’ and ‘girl’?

We’ve seen that a lot of our friends around the world eat similar foods to us, although the foods might have different names. The B4 children filmed each other talking about what’s in their lunch. What’s for Lunch in Reefton, NZ? from Judy McKenzie on Vimeo. Who makes your lunch for you?
