FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Tena koutou katoa, warm greetings to you all
On the final day of the term I want to take the opportunity to celebrate the exciting learning already had in term one, and to thank you all for your support and engagement with our school as we head into the term break.
Wahine 50th Commemorations
Our ‘Muritai Museum’ has been an incredibly popular way for us to share our learning from Term 1! We enjoyed hosting many visitors from far and wide over the past 10 days and have felt immensely proud as a learning community of what we were able to achieve. The feedback that we have had from many parents, past students, community members and the rescuers and the survivors themselves from the Wahine, will stay with us for a long time. The children have been able to play a role in a significant historical event, and we as a staff are delighted to have designed the learning activities and opportunities to enable them to do this.
We thank you all for your support in allowing us to host the special and rare dawn service and remembrance commemorations here at school on Tuesday, and appreciate you making alternative arrangements so that we could allow the near on 500 attendees to enjoy the school library and facilities for the early morning event.
On behalf of us all, I wish you a wonderful, safe and refreshing term break, and we look forward to welcoming you all back to school on the 30th April, to begin the term two learning adventure.
