Ministry of Education visit, Mathex, Year 8 netball, KiwiCan, T.O.P.S- What a week!!

Nga Kakano were very honoured to have our guests Whaea Honor and Matua David from the Ministry of Education, visit our class to see and experience how we learn Te Reo me ona Tikanga Maori in all our academic curriculum areas.

In the pohiri, our kura sang ‘Rona’ for our waiata tautoko and were told that Whaea Honor was the actual composer of this special waiata.

We were all humbled that we were graced with her presence at our kura. Thank you Whaea Honor for your taonga and we hope to see you both in the near future. Nga mihi nui kia korua 🙂

We would also like to congratulate our teina (Year 7) George Talukder who represented Team Taonga for the Year 7 Mathex Team. We are all so proud of you George. You played hard and fought right to the end!! Team Taonga came 2nd equal overall. Ka pai koutou! Nga mihi Mr Williams for organising such an awesome kaupapa!

Also Congratulations to our Sharnadel Cadore who plays in our Year 8 poitarawhiti netball team. They won their final on Wednesday night at Te Pai courts!

Our kotiro fought really hard, tears were shed, intercepts occured but most importantly our kotiro played with mana, showing our 3 Values at all times! They played with humility, with respect and were very engaged the entire game. They never gave up and won 28-22. Ka rawe koutou!
