Newsletter Week 10 Term 3 / Pānui Wiki 10 Wāhaka 3

Tēnā anō koutou, kua tae mai te mutunga o te wāhanga nei! Tino tere te wā!

Not my favourite term due to the rāhui for a few weeks in the middle of it and all of the new regulations for level 2, but, we are out the other end. Next term is just over 8 weeks with swimming, Christmas things, a Filipino Celebration Day, a Kī o Rahi tournament and a cultural festival with our Kāhui hub. These are all the plans and we hope we can run them, but will take this a day at a time!

Please check out the photos on Facebook. If your child received a certificate, and you would like it written on both sides, please return it and we will do it. Our apologies, time got away on us and we did not want them to go home without it!

Mihi Whakatau – Wednesday 20 October 8.50am-11am
If you are new to the school and have not been formally welcomed and/or attended our Mihi Whakatau, or if your child will be starting school later this term or early next term, you are invited. If you have been in the past for another child, the new parent meeting will be much the same so it is up to you.

This will start with a Māori based welcome for your child and family, followed by refreshments and an informative meeting about starting school. We highly recommend you attend.

Please gather with your child in the library by 8.50am ready to be guided through the Mihi Whakatau.   If you speak Te Reo Maori and would like to speak on behalf of the visitors please let me know.

For catering purposes, we would appreciate an indication of attendance by emailing, or advising Shelley in the office.

Hazel Harnett-Garbes
We look forward to Hazel returning next term from her study leave with Ngāi Tahu. She will be working in many classrooms for the term. I was with her and her group for the day today. It was great to be back where I, Josh Halkett and Clara Mapley all spent a term learning! We are very lucky as a school to have so many through the programme.

Kia pai te hararei tamariki mā!
