  1. We really enjoyed playing Cloak of Protection and we tried our hardest. It showed the groups that the birds were in like extinct, sea and forest. Our two favourite birds were the Huia and the Kokako. We have been looking at the Huia for our production so it was exciting to see it in the game. From Room 8

    1. Morgan did the illustrations with an airbrush ie by spraying inks!! He did a fabulous job.

  2. The week was awesome and we love your game. It is the best game ever. Thank you for coming out in your spare time and visiting us. Max really enjoyed beating you.
    We have learned a lot about nature.
    We would love to test your new game.
    Take care.

  3. What a super game and great to have all our students and some parents/grandies involved. Very competitive and a brilliant concept of learning about conservation. You rock

  4. We had a great week playing the game. 4 more games over the weekend. Thanks for the prizes!

  5. A total of 12 games played at home and at lunchtime for Friday the 13th. September.

  6. Wainuiomata Primary School has had a fantastic week playing cloak of protection.
    This week we have played 15 games!

  7. On Friday, Lakeview School played 15 games. Thank you we have had a great time, the kids have really got into the game and I am sure that it will be played lots in wet lunch times, breaks and before school.
    Well Done and thank you.

  8. Our students at Marco School, completed 12 games today and have taken the games home to play in the weekend
    With Mum and dads and Grandies…

  9. We played 62 games at Naenae Primary today. It has been an awesome week. Thank you

  10. 25 games played today again! What a great week we had playing Cloak of Protection. We loved playing this game and learning about what happens in our environment and learning about protecting our environment.
    The cards are so beautiful, we had some classes using the cards for art work for our local A and P Show.
    Congratulations Enviroschools on having such a wonderful week. We really enjoyed it.

    We hope to continue our learning and showing respect for our environment next week during Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week.

  11. The korero of the students at Featherston School about protecting our wildlife and how they are affected by seemingly small things is just great. I love the way they are so competitive and wanting to check scores daily! They are still coming into class in the mornings and organising themselves into teams of whoever is there and getting on with it. I love how they don’t care who they are playing with because as they said – “We are all whanau.” It’s nice hearing the language coming out of the team playing and the new words they are learning (positive!)

    Now they have found out about other schools letting them take games home…….my guess is all games will be out this weekend with even more whanau learning about them. YAY!

    Have a great day all
    Featherston School

  12. The kids are loving the challenging games and are wayyy better than they were on Day One. 37 games played today from Featherston School. Heoi Ano

    The wind and rain has kept them indoors…

    Estimate that 15 long and tactical games were played. Children are really interested and going to website to find out more.

Our after school care programme also helped boost today’s wonderful total of 69 games played. They have introduced the game and had many groups playing yesterday. Great job Team!!!

  23. Featherston School, 38 games. Big day here! They are getting really skillful.

  24. Naenae Primary pupils are really enjoying the game. They think the game is amazing and are having fun teaching it to more of their friends.
    “This game is the best”
    “This game teaches us about the environment”
    Today we have played 50 games.
    There is a real buzz around the school with lots of games of cloak of protection being played.

  25. 29 games played today here at Carterton School. We had 6 older children go over and teach some of the Junior Student in Room 5. They even put some photos on their classroom blog. Well done Carterton School.

  26. Wonderful to see varieties of the game being played – as schools make the game their own. Some schools are taking out some predators, when they’ve been through the pack (undealt pile) once. Others (after watching the video) are choosing to finish a game after a certain amount of time eg 20 minutes & declaring a winner ie the one with the biggest cloak, that has a god at the top.

  27. Great to meet you today Jil, and thanks so much for playing a game with the girls. They really enjoyed it. Today we played 24 games

  30. Lovely to see you again today JiL

  31. Loving the game at St Bens
    Students have learnt the game prior to this week, with their families and are teaching others at lunch time.
