Thank you to all our whanau and friends who helped make Matariki Market Night a success, we raised over $3,769.40 that helped contribute to the kainga night. Our kids were heavily involved in organising and planning this event. They have learnt about budgeting, promotions, administrations and business decisions in the process. Thank you to our guests for the entertainment and to all of those who donated extra food to sell on the night, we appreciate all your support and contribution.
Staff and students have had a busy time working on their Market Day projects and overall subject assessments for the term. Those who have shown consistency in their learning and attendance are reaping the benefits through their results. Should you have any queries regarding your child’s progress, please do not hesitate to book a meeting with their subject teachers. Otherwise, you will have an opportunity to do so in the upcoming parent, teacher, student interviews.
.Our trip to Wellington was an experience I, nor the other students, will forget. For some it was their first time on a plane, for others it was their first time out of Auckland and to be able to join them on that journey was beautiful. A lot of preparation and effort was put into organising such a big trip for so many students and it was evident in how busy our programme was.
We were able to visit special landmarks, participate in various activities and gain a better understanding and appreciation for the history of our country and the stories of our people, both here in NZ and in the islands. Seeing the amount of people who willingly contributed to the success of our trip was both shocking and humbling. It made us realize that there are people who care so much for us and who have no problem giving up their time to make something we never would’ve dreamt, possible. We enjoyed the time we were fortunate enough to spend in Wellington and we are forever grateful to those who made this possible, thank you again to our principals, teachers, families and to the global women’s association. – Falaula Tuigamala
