Our learning focus this term is Imagination and Innovation.


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.

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.


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 around our community and we had some special guests at our assemblies.
