A Message From Neryda

Kia ora Whanau and Students

Welcome back to Term 2 - what strange times we find ourselves in.

We do hope everyone is safe in their bubbles, following health official guidelines, and being kind to one another.

As we enter a school environment through distance learning, your first priority is to look after your own and student well-being. If you are feeling overwhelmed please step back from the learning, and re-engage at a later time.

The School Term begins on Wednesday 15th April.

On Tuesday 14th April, students will be assigned remotely, their learning for the Wednesday.

Wednesday will begin with a class "Zoom" session for those who can connect.Teachers will invite students to this class meeting.

We expect teething issues and know that some students will not be able to join this on- line meeting. Throughout the day teachers will make contact with their class and help out where they can. Please be patient, this is new for everyone!

Please read the following student protocols, these are our school's expectations for learning in the home.

All the best for Wednesday- in the meantime I'm hoping everyone can find some joy over the Easter Weekend.

Ministry of Education Support

Yesterday the Government announced a package of initiatives to support schools and centres with learning from home, including delivery of learning packs, the roll out of internet and devices, two TV stations, and online resources for whānau.

It's a significant and welcome package which has been rolled out in a very short amount of time. This will help support the hard work schools and early learning centres have been doing to figure out how they will best support their local communities and the wellbeing of their students.

Thank you for your response to teacher requests for information re: internet devices, connectivity, hard pack materials and lock down addresses.

This information was uploaded to the Ministry to support them in this roll-out.

Ahinekura Crawford - Whanau Leader

Tena koutou katoa,

Ko Ahinekura Crawford (nee Tamaiva)

This year I have the privilege of leading and working with a wonderful, energised and vibrant Ohawe team Whanau. I am the Teacher in Room 2.

I was born, raised and did all my schooling right here in Hawera. I am married to a wonderful man, Ihaka and have 2 awesome children. Hapotiki, 20 and Arcadia, 7 at Hawera Primary. Since 2006 I have taught in Masterton, Featherston, and Wellsford and moved back to Hawera in 2016.

When not working at school, I like to be involved at my local Marae, participating in Kapa Haka, singing and I really love hanging with whanau and making memories. I enjoy guiding students to recognise and achieve their own potential and to be successful on their pathway to success while here at Hawera Intermediate school.

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our new staff members who are also part of the Ohawe Whanau, Kylie Surgenor, Lania Careswell and Emily Davidson.
