TE PAE TAMARIKI
We congratulate our senior Kapa Haka roopu as they represent our kura by performing at the Regent Theatre next Monday morning. A HUGE amount of mahi has gone into preparing for this performance - in fact they have been practising since the beginning of the year. They look and sound fantastic - kia pai mai hoki!
I absolutely admire the commitment of both our ākonga (learners) and kaiako (teachers). A huge paki paki to Mrs Blay for her leadership, and to Mr Masoe and Miss Puts for their expertise and support of Mrs Blay.
TE AŌ MĀORI HUI - next Tuesday evening 27th June, starting at 5pm
We are excited to be offering an evening to celebrate Te Aō Māori (all things Māori), combined with our very important Whānau Hui (this was postponed last term).
Kapa Haka will perform for us, each kete will have activities for you to enjoy with the tamariki, there will be hot soup and bread rolls on offer, whānau will be warmly welcomed to ‘drop into’ the staffroom and share your ideas about the things we are doing well for our Māori ākonga and the things you’d like to see us do more of or introduce.
We’d love everyone (Māori and Non- Māori whānau) to come to this celebration - the staff will welcome you coming into each kete to enjoy the Matariki type activities they have prepared.
We will gladly accept a donation of a soup vegetable (e.g carrot, pumpkin, potato, leek, celery etc) to add to our soup stock - please send these to school next Monday if you can assist in this way.
If you can loan us your crockpot or soup ladle, please let your child’s whānau teacher know (and ensure they are clearly named when you bring them into school).
