Welcome back! While you were away...

I see myself as a learner and I also like setting myself a challenge. So in the holidays, while it was far too windy to achieve anything else, I decided I wanted our blog to have the ability to leave voicemails. I spent some time researching, visiting other blogs and playing around. Guess what?! I mastered how to do it! Now that it is set up all you have to do is click on the Voicemail Bar on the right side of your screen and follow the prompts.

We are going to be quad blogging with other schools from around NZ this term and this will be perfect for other learners, people at home and in our school community to leave us messages.

So let's play a game. At home tonight, send a voicemail telling us about a highlight from your holidays. We will listen to them during the week and see if we can work out the owner of the voice!
