Congratulations to our gem Izrael for being picked by the judges in winning one of the best dress book characters overall from the Aroha group. I love your outfit Mr Harry Potter, so proud of you in taking the lead at mat time by role modelling the alphabet sounds, along with building up your courage in walking down the fashion show and choosing your own prize. May you enjoy reading your frog book with your Mum and Dad over the  school holidays. 

Well down Aroha 5,  so over the moon that Louisa Wall our local MP selected our box for being the overall winner for the best duffy box. One of her reasons being,  it demonstrated a strong message in promotion of reading
