Melville Intermediate - Skyping with St Marys School

This morning students from Room Eight held a Skyping session with students from St Marys School in Mosgiel, in the South Island.   We covered the students Mihi who were reciting it to Hayze and Mackenzie and the students also talked about their schools, the similarities and the differences.  The students spoke for over half an hour and we here at Melville Intermediate really enjoyed the experience, judging by the posts on their page St Marys did too! You can click on their class page by clicking here.

Yesterday Mackenzie and I Skyped with St Marys School, Room Seven. They saw a link of Mackenzie and I in the CPA doing the Hawaiian dance for my Grandmothers Birthday. I was so surprised that they only had around two hundred students from Y1 to Y8 and we have nearly 300 students from Y7 and Y8. It was great talking to Room Seven and I really enjoyed it.


  1. Mr W, MacKenzie and Hayze, thanks for an awesome Skype yesterday. It was Room 7's first skype and they are really keen to do it again. Thanks for the help with the pronunciation in our mihi.
