Welcome to our classroom, MAURIA TE PONO, Room 5.  Today was an amazing first day and it was great to meet our new teina and whanau who attended our powhiri.  We are very happy to warmly welcome you to into our whanau.  This year we have been lucky enough to make one the brand new classrooms next to our school library, our HOME or kainga.  We are LOVING our new kainga and can’t wait to decorate our walls with our new mahi/work.
