Wiki TuaRUA!!!!

Katahi te timatanga miharo rawa atu mo tenei tau, he kaha no nga teina hou ara nga Tau 7 ki te whai i nga tikanga o te kura, te whakaputa i te katoa ki roto i nga mahi katoa o to matou akomanga ano hoki.

(Wow! What an amazing start to the year, our Year 7/teina- students have shown that they can follow protocols of our school and also work hard in all subjects that have been given to them.)

Our tamariki have settled in really well and are learning Te Reo Maori very fast so ka pai!

A MASSIVE mihi to Matua Sean and Matua Tyler who are just amazing with our tamariki. They are a part of our kura and our learning support team and they are so passionate about the way our kids learn and achieve socailly, culturally and academically here at Kerehana so thank you korua ๐Ÿ™‚

Our tamariki this week have been sharing and having more korero about our values respect, responsibility and engagement and how these feel, look and sound like in different environments. Next week we will be focussing on Responsibility and will be analysing and identifying the variety of ways to demonstrate and write different scenarios of how we use it.

We also created a “Tiriti o Nga Kakano”- A treaty/agreement of our class. It was awesome to see the rules/ture set around how our class should behave, the Tikanga of Nga Kakano.


Here are our AMAZING teina for 2017:

Ty Broughton, Alexus Kelly, Raiden King, Amos Mason-Hiroki, Jerome Midwood, Te Ao Pita-Ritchie, Antonne Schuster, George Talukder, Monaro Tearii, Manuel Te Rewi, Taylor Tokimua-Tarei, Ranui Williams ๐Ÿ™‚ ….Also a warm welcome to our tuakana Aaliyah Paul who has come from Northcote Intermediate. Nau mai, haere mai whanau!

Our tuakana have stepped up into their role and have started showing leadership skills to our teina. So kia kaha tuakana ma. Yous can do it ๐Ÿ™‚

Team Taonga had our first assembly last week. Our team is made up from 4 different classes, Nga Kakano (2), Te Pou Herenga Waka (3), Lumunaii Manuia (7) & Te Kei o te waka (10). We will be having a team hui once a fortnight on a Weds afternoon (1.50-3pm) so please feel free to come and join us.


Mahi kainga/homework

Very important that your tamaiti completes and returns their mahi kainga on the due date please. My tamariki know that I am very strict on homework and if they have not completed or not made an effort, there will be a consequence (detention, phone call home, picking up rubbish….etc). We will try to avoid all these consequences but if you could please encourage your tamaiti to do their mahi kainga, that would be awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

P.E uniform and HATS

Please make sure our tamariki have correct P.E uniform, sports shoes everyday of the week apart from Friday. HATS- it is vital that you come to kura everyday with a potae(hat). The weather and sun is heating up and if you do not have a potae, you will get burnt and you will be asked to sit under the shelter on your break times until you wear a hat. Dark blue/black PLAIN hats are allowed. $12 at the office

Swimming and forms

Our swimming programme starts Feb 28th for 6 weeks. Our tamariki cant go swimming without a permission form so kia kaha whanau. Send those back alongside the health and safety form please. It is $10 for 6 lessons.

So a great start to the year whanau!

Keep it up! Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui
