Here are the senior students’ final Production Video Journals before the premier of the feature films on Wednesday 14th December at the Taihape Majestic Theatre.  If you are a local, you are more than welcome to join us for the show (check out the ePeN for information).  For all of our distance fans out there in Cyber Land, I will put up their completed movies after the premier.


Craft and Pet Day Double

We had a wonderful time at Craft and Pet days this year.  A huge thank you needs to go out to everyone who helped during these days.  It is so wonderful to have everyone together … with cake and muffins :-)

Movie Production Video Journals – Part Three

Here are our third installments of Video Production Journals made by the senior students at Pukeokahu School.


Movie Making at Pukeokahu Schol

This term the senior students at Pukeokahu School are retelling a Māori Legend using Claymation.  During this process they are going to keep a video production diary, just like Peter Jackson does for the Hobbit.  Here is the first Production Diary for the group – Webb Ellis Productions.

And here is the first Production Diary for Wheelie Whizzers Productions.

Richie Is Coming To Pukeokahu School!

This is amazing!  That’s right folks, we won!  We raised the most money for the Westpac Trust Chopper Appeal out of the entire country!

We raised $2302.20 for the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter.  That means each child raised a whopping $230.22 each!  I think the official term is that we ROCK!

So now the Captain of the All Blacks, Mr Richie McCaw is coming to little old awesome Pukeokahu School.  The kids are excited, the teachers are excited, the parents are excited, and after today our entire community will be excited.

Come on over Richie, we can’t wait to meet you!
