Kia ora e te Whanau
We have a busy last few weeks at Onekawa School!
I am incredibly proud of our Kapa Haka group who performed at the Ngati Kahugnunu festival in Hastings yesterday. A big thanks to Matua T, Mrs Woolf and Whaia Mariea for their mahi in preparing our group. Ka mau te wehi! I have included a link below to the performance on our school You Tube page.
This Tuesday we hold our end of year celebration conferences. To book, please click on the following link: https://www.schoolinterviews.co.nz/code/f93dp Further details about the conferences can be found below.
We also have our very special Year 6 Leavers Dinner on Wednesday next week. A big thanks to Annette and Team Pipi for their organisation.
You are all warmly invited to attend our end of year assembly on Tuesday 12 December at 9:30am. This assembly is a chance for us to celebrate the 2023 school year; the Kapa Haka group will also be performing for us. We hope to see you there.
Have a fun weekend!
Celebration Conferences - This Tuesday
Tuesday 5 December
We are holding our Celebration Conferences this Tuesday 5 December.
School will close at the usual time of 3pm. Children will be supervised on the field by Mr Bloor and support staff between 2 and 3pm.
Celebration conferences are an opportunity to celebrate your child's learning and the successful year they have had.
Bookings are in half hour slots, and you are welcome to visit at any stage within this time frame.
Your child will share their learning folder with you as well as other work which may be displayed, alongside other families in the room. Your child's teacher looks forward to celebrating with you!
Booking is easy! You can click on the link below or contact the school office and we will make the booking for you!
