Kia ora Tātou
With the change of weather we are experiencing it is great to see our students wrapping up warm in the mornings. Please make sure all of their clothes are named so that when they peel off those layers we can make sure they get back to their rightful owners.
It was my privilege yesterday to accompany our School Leaders, Waka Captains, and Service Leaders to the National Young Leaders Day in Hamilton. A huge thank you to Lorraine, Aroha, and Eleanor for helping this to happen by being our drivers and chaperones. It was an awesome day and our leaders have been challenged in their resilience and given ideas on how to bounce back. Next week we will include some writing from some of the students so they can share their experience with you.
