Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

We finished off a week of learning and activities for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori with an amazing assembly. There were items from our Junior, Middle, and Senior School Kapa Haka groups, waiata and dance from our Year 7 and 8 students, and whole school waiata.

'He mauri te reo Māori nō Aotearoa māu, mā tātou katoa'


Ahakoa iti, ākona, kōrerotia - Learn a little, use a little.

On the move!

Keep an eye out for our new van and car! We were so excited when these arrived we had a whole school celebration in the hall. Having the van and car will make it much easier getting our tamariki out and about to activities and sports events.
