Te wiki tua waru- Wahanga WHA!!!

Nga Kakano have been working so hard these past two weeks to finish our last term off with a BANG πŸ™‚ making sure we finish our year off well abiding and displaying our 3 values consistently…..Kia kaha Nga Kakano πŸ™‚

We have been focussing on completing all our mahi to our highest potential in all areas of learning in order to fill our portfolios with AMAZING mahi to show our matua and whanau


I encourage our whanau to book an appointment with me ASAP via email or text: terinah@kelstonint.school.nz to discuss your tamaiti and their progress this year. Our tamariki have been striving all term to make our Student Led Conference a great one. The reports will be handed out at the interviews and your tamaiti will be conducting the entire conference. Nga Kakano have been practising their scripts and whakatauki so it would be orsum to see a 100% turn out, so kia kaha- book in ASAP. I have some slots still available Tuesday between 1 & 8pm so nau mai, haere mai!!

On another note, we had the AMAZING production from ASB theatre called The eel and Sina and they were just ORSUM. So engaging, funny, beautiful acapella singing and full of culture. It was lovely to have our pasifica whanau showcase their amazing talents of performing arts and we thank yous for coming and sharing your world of arts with our Kerehana whanau so nga mihi πŸ™‚ Also a big thank you for allowing our 2 bilingual units a pre-show workshop so on behalf of Nga Kakano and Ulimasao- Faafetai lava πŸ™‚nga-kakano-2016-pics-of-my-kids-1515

Nga Kakano also wrap up the year with Kiwi Can apopo, so thank you so much to Whaea Amiria and Matua Sefa for everything yous have done for our tamariki. For being the best supporters of all our kids kaupapa too. Kiwi Can is a forum of learning manaakitanga, whakawhanaungatanga and aroha within a different context. Our kids love Kiwi Can and the positivity they feel when they leave every session is guranteed so nga mihi korua πŸ™‚image61
