He kupu whakamihi…
E rere ana ngā kupu whakamihi ki ngā whanau i tae ā tinana ki ngā pō uiui. It is always a privilege to share the joys of learning with you all. Ngā mihi matakuikui. If you were unable to attend the pō uiui, and you wish to talk with your tamaiti’s kaiako please do not hesitate to come and make a time to catch up.
Tua atu ki tērā ki ngā whanau i haere mai ai ki te hui whanau, tēnā koutou. Thank you to all those whanau attended the hui whanau. It was encouraging to see so much support. Kia kaha e tātou mā – nā tō koutou rourou, nā tō mātou rourou tātou katoa e ora ai.
Whanau hōu …
Kei te mihi mahana, kei te mihi nui ki ngā whanau hou ki tō tātou Roopu. Nau mai, haere mai e Koa van Hoppe rāua ko Shyah-Marie Brown me ō rāua whanau hoki. Koa and Shyah are currently transitioning, and will be welcomed with a Pōwhiri Friday 26th May at 9am. Whanau are asked to tautoko with a perēti kai and ensure tamariki are dressed appropriately.
Kaupapa ako …
This term tamariki will continue to explore our kura waiata Whakamau – the gift so generously left to us by our esteemed e Kui. Lessons will come from a pūtaiao (science) perspective encouraging tamariki to investigate Papatūānuku, Tāne Mahuta and the whenua. In support of learning Te Roopu Aroha ki Te Reo will be heading out to Maungatautari to the Ecological Sanctuary. Whanau are invited to joins us. We will need at least 5 pakeke to support this haerenga. Pānui will go home this week. Please complete the permission portion, indicate if you are able to tautoko and return as soon as possible.
Oma whakawhiti whenua …
Cross country is with us again whanau and tamariki are training hard. Tamariki have been further developing running skills, stamina and technique. On the day tamariki are encouraged to wear appropriate running shoes – the track is full of tutu. Kia kaha tonu mai e tātou mā.
Roopu ti-hāte are available for purchase at the tari for $20.
