This week’s message from the Principal:

Click the picture for the video of the Kāhui Kākano production ‘Lost in Space’


It has been a big week for our youngest children with their three performances of their ‘Lost in Space’ production. There are some tired 5 year olds. The production was a the usual Kāhui Kākano extravaganza and I know it was enjoyed by everyone who got to watch it. You will find a video of the production on our website. It is just a cell phone quality video – so please don’t expect Oscar worthy cinematography. 

Linda Forbes and I have spent the last three days at a wellbeing conference in Christchurch. This has been a really good reflection time for us to consider how we support a positive school culture, develop strong relationships with whānau and put student wellbeing at the centre of what we do to support our tamariki to have success. Thanks to Jac Tapp who stepped up as Acting Principal in my absence.

Our kapa haka group have their first performance opportunity on Tuesday of next week at Cromwell College. We have our fingers crossed that we will be back to Level 1 and able to welcome our community as an audience. If we are still at Level 2 we will only be able to have two whānau for each member of the group present as our audience. A final reminder email with any last minute details will go to all performance group members before the event.

Kind regards
