Farewell - Grayson Haitana

Tena Koutou Parents, Caregivers and Whanau.

Hello everyone,

Kia ora e hoa mä.

Mā te tuakana ka tōtika te teina, mā te teina ka tōtika te tuakana

(From the older sibling the younger learns how to do it, from the younger sibling the older learns how to be tolerant/everyone has responsibilities, both the old and the young.) Congratulations to Isabella Houghton, Ryan McNamee, Renee Pomare, Adam Wing and Jake Eden who all did well at the speech finals in Te Anau yesterday. They all represented the school with pride. Ka pai.

John Parsons, Cyber Safety expert, is visiting our school, on Monday 27 September. He will speak to all children, and is taking a session with staff after school.

He has also kindly offered to take a parent session at 6.30pm. We are very happy to provide a movie and snack for your children, so that you can attend this important session on keeping your child/ren safe online. Please diary this date now so that one whanau/family member can attend.
