On Monday we were lucky to receive a letter from Mr Kinley. The letter explained that he was proud of us and was full of compliments about our learning and how we show great leadership in the school.
We felt many great emotions when we read the letter and decided it would be nice to write letters to someone ourselves.
Everyone in Koru 1 wrote a letter to a buddy. We took the time to personalise our letters to each other so that our words were thoughtful and meaningful. We published our letters and hand made special envelops. We couldn't wait to receive our letters and finally the time came on Friday afternoon.
We split into two groups so that we could read our letter first away from our buddy. It was a flood of emotion. Grins and giggles filled the room. We were so excited and happy to get a hand written letter from someone. When we joined back together as a whole group we shared our thoughts. Some of us were "speechless" from all the wonderful compliments. Many of us felt content that we were so important to someone. We all learned how much our words matter and we want to write more letters so that others can feel as happy and special as we do.
