Diary this date: Matariki Breakfast – You Are Invited

We are celebrating Matariki (Maori New Year) with breakfast for all tamariki (children), whanau and parents in our school hall on Tuesday 25 June, arriving at 7.15am for a 7.30am start. Children are learning some waiata and will perform these for you. You don’t need to bring any food along, however you will need to bring a cereal bowl, spoon, and cup. We look forward to having you join us. After breakfast is finished you can collect your child’s dishes up, and leave your child/ren here ready for the start of school. More information will come out in a newsletter closer to the time.
