Welcome back to Term 3, we are excited as we work towards our Whānau sharing day on the 17th August. 

We will be sharing the learning our ākonga have engaged in through our Kaitiakitanga Unit over the past term. We are learning about our environmental practises and how they effect our kura.

Kākano (Room 1) are exploring where our bugs live and are being kaitiaki (caretakers) for our grounds. 

Tupu (Room 2) are investigating our rubbish and recycling practises. What a difference we’ve already seen by changing a few of our habits!

Māhuri (Room 3) have been learning about trees, participated in planting in our community and are working with Rākau (Room 4) on repurposing the old pool as a māra (garden). 

We look forward to sharing more as the displays are placed in our Hall. Please come and join us and we look forward to seeing you here!
