Our Koro likes to wear his hat through sun and rain, he has a beautiful hair colour - and YES its grey! He loves to wear his shorts, singlets and his boots when it is a beaming sunny day. He has the eyes of a wise man, a smile that beams through the dark and the eyes of a warrior who has been here for us every day.
When we hear ‘Kia Ora!’ We all know that Koro is around. He greets us like no other, he cheers for us in Kapa Haka and when we are singing the last of the lyrics of the song he always says, ‘Oooh beautiful singing!’ He makes us feel proud of ourselves. He never lets us down but he always reminds us ‘Make sure you pick up our rubbish!’ Before the bell.
Koro likes a lot of things, but he especially loves rugby. His favourite team is the Chiefs.
He dislikes it when we drop rubbish when he has to pick it up but if we have spare some we help him out by picking up our own rubbish but our school expectation is to put our rubbish in the bin to make all our lives easier .
Koro is an organised man, he is able to maintain his inner strength and he is filled with cheerfulness and his sense of humor that goes a very long way. He is always there to fix whatever is in need and is there to cheer us whenever we have kapa haka. He picks up rubbish around our school, he never ignores us and and that is one thing we like about him.
Koro is special to us because he is always there to help us in many different ways, he cheers for us, cleans for us and he is not just a caretaker he is an amazing man with a big heart for us all.

We had all come together and investigated both Dandelion and Daisy once again.
Dandelion (the plant under the dark box) is still in the same position it just has a few light spots around it and a few more leafs are growing from the other stems.
Daisy(the plant getting a tan in the sun) is sadly dying but is still standing strong. A few leaves are dead but we hope that it will grow and stop dying.
I hypothesis that Dandelion will continue to grow and hopefully Daisy won't lose any more leaves.

We invested our plants once again and have noticed that there has been a slight change to both of our plants. The plant that we left under the sun has not grown but most of the leaves are dieing.
The plant that we left under the dark box has grown and hasn't changed which was Surprising to see because I had hypothesis that the plant in the sun would grow much faster.
Now I am really thinking about the future changes like will the plant that we leave in the sun will die? Or will the plant that we leave under the dark box survive?

Today myself and my group investigated our plants and have noticed that the plant we left inside he box didn't make any progress but the outside of the leaves had turned light green and the plant that we left on the window was still the same but the roots had expanded. Now I am wondering if the plant that we are leaving under the box is going to get lighter and lighter and die or are the roots expanding but slowly? Are the plants going to survive or are they going to die?
