|Te Rōpū Aroha ki te Reo
Kia hora te marino, kia papapounamu te moana
Kia tere te kārohirohi i mua i tō ara
Ka puta, ka ora, paimārire
Ki te kaihanga o ngā mea katoa, kei te mihi
Ki tō tātou Kīngi a Tūheitia me te whare Kāhui Ariki, paimārire ki a rātou
Ki a rātou mā kua whiti atu ki tua o te pae o maumahara
Moe mai, moe mai, moe mai rā
Ki a tātou te whānau o tō tātou Rōpū nei rā te mihi mahana, te mihi maioha hoki
Our annual Pool Night is on tonight (2nd March) from 5.30-7pm. Kaiako are looking forward to meeting with all whanau and having a kai and swim together. Please bring the whanau and a kai. Piki mai, kake mai.
A big mihi to all Year 5/6 students who have been practicing waka kopapa and really enjoying themselves. Our whainga is to prepare for the Turangawaewae Waka Regatta in Ngaruawahia on the 18th of March. If your tamaiti is involved please give Koka a call or txt to let her know if you can support on the day or at practices.
If your tamaiti is sick please keep them home. There are a few bugs flying about and school sores. Please check hair for kutu also and get our children’s hair treated before sending them to school.
As stated in the whole school newsletter sent home in the mail last week, the whole school have a new dress code being implemented in term two. Please refer to the attached for our Ropu dress code. This will also be implemented in term two.
Koka Liz has made a new order for shirts, they are $20each. You can pay for your tamaiti’s shirt at the office and then Koka Liz will make sure your tamaiti brings a new shirt home. If you have any queries or concerns feel free to come and speak to Koka Liz or Matua Malcolm.
Kai Tika/ Taonga Tika
A few tamariki are bringing lollies and chewing gum to kura. Please remind tamariki that lollies and gum are NOT allowed at kura. Toys are creeping back in to kura too so please check bags and remind tamariki.
A reminder that school starts every day at 8.50am, please make sure all tamariki arrive at school before this time to prepared for learning.
Interval 11-11.30am (Wednesdays 10.10-11am)
Lunch time 1.20-2pm (Wednesdays 12.30-1pm)
Closing karakia 3pm (Wednesdays 2.15pm)
Kaiako are going to be teaching a few lessons on road safety for the remainder of the week as tamariki need to be reminded.
We would like to encourage whanau to speak with their tamariki in regards to Road Safety. A few tamariki have been spoken to in regards to not keeping safe by the school crossing or around traffic.
It is really important for our tamariki to keep safe and listen to adults who are supervising our school crossing.
It is also a school expectation that once tamariki reach our school crossing they are to hop off their scooters, bikes or skate boards and walk the rest of the way to school.
Kia kaha koa koutou te whanau ki te korero ki o tatou tamariki mokopuna!!
Marau a Whanau
If you haven’t received a whanau project for the term please give Koka Liz a txt or drop in to see her.
