Gumtown Gallop
Coroglen School students were taken back in time by the Doctor to see what life was like in the 1890s, 1920s, 1960s and 1980s. There is a video of the junior children singing the Taniwha song, and the senior children singing The Cup song on our website www.coroglenschool.co.nz. Thank you to everyone who pitched in to make the evening a success. Miss Anderson really enjoyed the night and thought the children were wonderful.

We also farewelled Yui who is now at Southwell School in Hamilton.  

Have a good week,
