Kia ora koutou

Museum Trip
Ngā mihi nunui ki a koutou katoa! It has been a busy but great term.  Please have a look through our Facebook Page for all the action shots of the term and most recently the Matariki trip to the Museum.  A big thank you to Mel Lindsay and Clara Mapley for the organisation of this day and to all the amazing parent help! 

Miss Garbes
Miss Hazel Harnett-Garbes heads off on study leave next term.  She was awarded a ‘Study Award’ and is on a full immersion programme with Ngāi Tahu.  Being Ngāi Tahu herself, she is very excited at the opportunity to learn the history of her ancestors and their language. We look forward to her return in Term 4.   Kei tāhaku haumi, kia kaha, kia māia, kia ora! (Be strong, be brave, good luck to her)

Mihi Whakatau

This will be to welcome Dean Isherwood, our new DP to St Anne’s.  It will also welcome any other new people to the school.  If you would like to attend, please let Shelley know for catering purposes.  Also, please note, if you are coming, familiarise yourself with the supporting waiata;  Whakarongo Ake Au, He Honore, E Minaka Ana (newer version)
