Kia Ora te whānau.


To celebrate Matariki’s hard work this term, we have planned two excursions for this week. The first excursion will be Wednesday 13th of April. This excursion is called “Te Rēhi Pokaiwhenua”, and is Matariki’s version of the Amazing Race. This event is free and will start at 9:10, this will also be the time we leave kura.  Students will need closed shoes a BIG cut lunch, togs and towel, bottle of water and a sun hat. We plan to return to kura around 2pm.  Matua Winiata will tap parents on shoulders if he needs help.

The second excursion will be  Thursday 14th of April. This excursion will be called Te Rangi Miharo” and will take place in the Te Uku and Waingaro area. First activity will be paintball at Te Uku, after that we will be heading to Waingaro to visit E Kui, then spend rest of day at Waingaro hot pools. We will return to kura around 3pm.

This will cost each student $20. Please see Winiata if there are issues with payment.

Students will need closed shoes, togs and towel, BIG cut lunch, bottle of water and a sun hat. Your child can bring extra padding for paintball if needed. It is important that first time players of paintball understand the potential pain/injury that could be inflicted onto them, please have this discussion with your child.

Students who choose not to play Paintball will only need to pay $10.

Any questions please feel free to call me on 0278128130 between 8am-6pm
