Kia ora Koutou,

It has been a busy week with speeches to be written, inquiry on the living world and our chosen plant or animal to be investigated, fractions and percentages in mathematics, puberty lessons and also the extra curricular activities around our school.

When you’re engaged and participating in what our school has to offer you love being here.  The TOPS programme is in to it’s third week and for the Wakaama – Oe Vaka TOPS learning the basics of the paddling first and the safety procedures before even going near the water.

Homework in Te Kei o Te Waka has been encouraged and students like Siope Vake has been consistent in emailing his written work to Mrs Tamati for clarity and support.

Finding inspirational quotes to include in our speeches have been a positive experience with some of the students sharing their favourites with the class.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the World!”

“A winner is a dreamer who never gives up!”

“Don’t count the days.  Make the days count!”

Last week Te Kei O Te Waka was learning to understand that “The more you give the more you receive!”.  Each student managed to help support Tongan Group fundraiser and we received a bowl of goodies for that.

Top students so far Term 3 – Week 1 Halamalu, Week 2 Monique and for Week 3 was Mya.  Well done to these students who are engaged and working towards their next Taumata level.

If your child has a device they would like to bring to school we have a BYOD policy here at school.  This will help them with their learning and student profiles.

There are a few more parents who have not yet had their Student Led Conference please call 0211376760 to make an appointment.

Meitaki atupaka,

Mrs May Tamati
