Neihana has just finished his first week back at school for 2012. His first day of Year 6 was Wednesday, which started with nerves and excitement over who his new teacher might be. He was hoping to get Miss Bone, a new teacher who worked in his class as a student last year, and he really didn’t want Mr Ryan, the only male teacher in the school. Well, he’s in Mr Ryan’s class. And he couldn’t be happier.
Shane had Mr Ryan for Year 5 and had told Neihana he had nothing to worry about, that Mr Ryan was a cool teacher, but Neihana was nervous about it all the same. But by the end of his first day he was in agreement with Shane. He loves his class and thinks his teacher is fantastic. And to top it all off, his best friends Jason and Ryan are both in his class, and they sit either side of him.
A happy, tired, hungry boy has come home from school each day for the last three days. We’re looking forward to a great year ahead.
