Newsletter - Week 10, Term 2 2023

Kia ora Waitetuna Whaanau,

Matariki Sharing—it was lovely to come together for the end of the term for Matariki. Thanks for coming.

Support Staff Week—this week is a very special week as we get to acknowledge the amazing support staff at our school. Amberlee, Hannah, Jane, Jess, Te Kura, Liz, Richard, Lorna, Jennie, and Amy Robbs—what a great team. So many strengths and skills that enhance our student’s learning in this tumeke crew. We thank you all for your help in our great little school.

We also took the time at the end of last week to farewell, say ‘Haere Ra’ to Tania Lattaney who has been working with a student over the past 18 months and who has been a supervisor for after school care. We thank you for your mahi.

As we have reached the end of term 2 we would like to acknowledge the teachers and the great volunteers that help our school too.

First week of term 3—please note there will be no newsletter in week 1 as I am on leave. See you in week 2. I hope you all have a chance to take a break in the school holidays and enjoy the Matariki long weekend on the 14th July.

Ngaa mihi nui, Amanda and staff
