Onekawa School Newsletter

Week 1, Term 4, Thursday 21 October


Kia ora whanau

Welcome back to term four. This is a short newsletter for a short week!

Next week we are holding our annual cross country events.

Our Manaaki and Manawanui teams (Year 3-6) will be running on Wednesday 27 October and our Whetu Iti team (Year 1/2) on Thursday 28 October.

Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to invite parents to attend either event.

We will, however, be taking lots of photos and these will be added to next week's newsletter.

Have a lovely long weekend whanau!
