Usoga – Brotherhood


“You may call for peace as loudly as you wish, but where there is no brotherhood there can in the end be no peace. ” – Max lerner. 

This is Kelston, this is Tamatoa. At the beginning of term 1 we learn’t about the words respect, engaged & responsibility. We have looked at these words and made connections on how they relate to us at home, in our community & at school.

The implications, of a brotherhood has quickly become evident in Tamatoa. As the quote suggests, if young men from all walks of life cannot bond together for a common purpose, how can there be an agreement. “WE ARE KELSTON”, we stand for a purpose.

A huge thank you to all parents who supported their child at our PLP students conferences last week on Tuesday. I enjoyed meeting you, talking to you about your child’s progress.

So many exciting things have been happening in Tamatoa. Please remember to check with your child about their homework. We have an assignment on ANZAC which is due in on the 13th of April.

Here are some pictures to show you what has been going down.
