New Enrolments are Welcome
2021 is a milestone year for us as it marks the opening of our two bilingual classes:
Ako te reo Māori and Le Gagana Samoa
Imagination and Innovation
The children returned to school on the first day of term to discover Moana's waka in our school pool. Using their imagination and innovation they will draw on their technological and scientific skills to design a new waka for Moana.
Watch this space!
We had a very busy last day of term 2 celebrating Matariki planting Kawa Kawa and other plants to start our Rongoa garden. We were honoured to have our Kaumatua Papa Ngaro support our Kapa Haka group who lead this. We would like to acknowledge EcoMatters for their donation of the plants for our Rongoa garden.
Essential Workers Appreciation Day
Our student council, lead by Hayley, organised an essential workers appreciation day. This was to honour those who worked during lockdown. Thank you cards were delivered to essential workers in our community and we had special guests at our assembly.
