I have a book prize for Gemma. I am sending her Millie Maloo and the Miracle Glue by Melanie Koster and illustrated by Sarah Nelisiwe (Schoalstic 2011). This a picture-book story with lively lines and a plain hat that has an adventure (Millie is a girl after my own heart as she loves ‘poetry, pottery, painting and dance and three times a year she hitchhiked through France’). Melanie not only writes books but works with children at Russley School. Thank you for donating this prize!

Hitting a six

Hero 3

Hero 3  Happiness

Hair spiking

Muted squealing

Bubbles bursting

Water shimmering

Tasting salt


Splashing sounds

Warm water

Go Pro captures

Aqua Days


By Jack Year 6 Age 9 Fendalton School Christchurch

P.S it was in my pool!!!!!



Faster, Faster, Faster

In a bubble

speeding up wind

heart thumping

faster and faster

legs a slave

to the race,

the marathon.


By Ewen aged 11, Year 7, Cobham Intermediate School, Christchurch
