 Congratulations to Bjorn who has entered his pikitia into the Toyota Dream Car Competition.  If his picture is chosen he has the opportunity to travel to Japan to participate in the prize-giving and viewing of all other artworks entered.

Haere Ra to our little bro Matiu.  Wishing him all the best with his new kura and kainga noho.  
Marau a Kura for our Whanau Whakaiti Bilingual Unit, a work in progress
Our Marau a Kura was introduced at our Whanau Hui in Wiki 3, it is a broad outline of what we value in our Whanau Whakaiti Unit and help to mould the tamariki that leave here in Year 6.
Easter Raffle $2 per ticket, drawn on Thursday 24/3 2016 if all tickets are sold, so come check it out at school. Please support us. Fundraising for Marae Noho this year.
Great start to our year when our whole school was privileged to be welcomed onto the Navy Frigate HMS Wellington by Matt Kaio.  Our tamariki even made it to the Captains seat and the bridge of the frigate, with all the technical equipment that is used by the Navy.  Huge thanks to Matt Kaio from us.

Aye, Aye Captain River. Obviously the Captains chair was a highlight for the tamariki.  

Someone has to clean the brass.
Thank goodness for the sides, we were up really high.  Big thank you to the whanau that came to support our tamariki.  They were full of interesting questions and really enjoyed the tour as well.

Skills a plenty with Brad

We were fortunate to have an expert Hockey coach Brad pass on some awesome skills to our tamariki. Discovering that hockey is a very cool game was one of the learning outcomes.  Yay could be some up and coming hockey greats from this lot. Thanks Brad.
