Crest Designs

In term 3, First Credit Union ran a competition for students to design a crest. This was following the theme of the Lions Rugby Tour and their impressive crest.

Room 4 decided it would be a good idea to create a crest for Wairakei Primary. We found out what year our school opened as we thought having the year would be a good idea. We then thought about special things that our school has such as; the gully, the red dot tree, the maze and the steam from the thermal ground and Power Station.

We then sketched symbols that could represent our unique school.

We then wrote simple sentences to explain each symbol on our crests.

Mrs Painter then took our work to the First Credit Union Bank.

The competition was for the whole of the North Island (not just Taupo).  

This week the winners were announced and to our surprise, Natalie was one of the winners. We were all so very proud of Natalie, she created an amazing crest and deserved to win. She won $50.00. Well done Natalie!
