Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,

Last Wednesday, our Kapahaka group performed at the Otago Polyfest in Dunedin. Our group has received accolades from the organisers for the innovative actions and movements around the stage, created by Mel’s expert tutoring. Highlights for me were the Goldfields’ groups high quality performance,  the haka tautoko (supporting haka) performed by the Cromwell College Kapahaka group to acknowledge our children at the end of the performance, and the Cromwell College Kapahaka group performance, later that evening, which was outstanding. Special thanks to Mel, for her leadership, and to all the parents who provided transport to Dunedin.  All the Cromwell Schools’ Kapahaka groups have high quality routines – I  will be exploring how we can showcase these to our wider community.

For the remainder of the week, Anna, Linda and Jac are attending the NZ Principal’s conference which is held in Queenstown. This is a great opportunity to network with other leaders and to be inspired by the key note speakers.

The upcoming holidays are a good time to check that all items of your child’s clothing is named. We return named items to children but many items are unnamed. We have a large black rubbish bag of unnamed lost property items in the office area. Please see Rebecca if your child has misplaced clothing.

Ka pai to wiki. Have a safe week. Nga mihi nui, Sharon.
