Let us have such a big heart that everybody finds room in it - Suzanne Aubert/Meri Hōhepa

Dear whānau, tamariki and parishioners,

Let's hope this good weather continues for a bit longer as we practice for athletics and make the most of our grounds with outdoor learning.

This week we welcome Xavier Robinson to Room Pūkeko, congratulations on starting school we hope you have happy school days.

If you haven't caught up with how athletics will run for years 3 to 6 please check out Miss Hood's facebook post or app post.

Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.

God bless, Annie

Te kupu o te wiki - the word of the week

Te kupu this week is waiata singing/ sing / song. It's a word we use a lot at school as we love to sing... sadly only outside now :)

Our school has one school song in English but we are better known for singing Ko Waiata te Maria the song to Mary that we will belt out as soon as we are all back together for a school Mass.

Be prepared...

There has been a lot of information in The Ensign and locally about what you might need if you have to self isolate. Obviously waiting on a test result could mean self isolating for a day, but being unwell could mean that you are at home for a number of days. If we have to send classes home at any time it would not be appropriate for you all to nip to the supermarket or chemists to stock up.

Welfare needs - If you are isolating and need support, you can call the COVID Welfare Phone Line on 0800 512 337. It’s open seven days a week. For general welfare needs call 0800 559 009
