Welcome to all our new whanau and welcome back to all our tuakana from 2016!

We are all so excited to see so many new whanau turn out for our pohiri on Tuesday. We are so pleased and very very excited to have such a huge whanau join us on our waka of success for our tamariki in 2017!

Our first 5 weeks will be focussing on who we are as Kelstonians “We are Kelston”             Ko Kerehana Matou

Our kaupapa will be focussing on our 3 values

Respect- Whakamanatanga

Responsibility- Rangatiratanga


We will be learning and extending our kura pepeha and learning more about karakia and tauparapara.

Our focus will also be on learning more about our rohe/area of Kelston and its whakapapa

Swimming this term starts in Week 5 so please let me know if any of your tamariki have any difficulties in the water. Just email me on or you can text me on 021-267-0745.

Your tamariki have settled in really well 🙂 I am pleased and excited to see them grow and learn culturally, socially and academically this year.

I will be updating and uploading different curriculum areas of learning and what your tamariki have been learning so please check our page regularly!

Nga mihi mahana, Whaea Terina
