Our newly created leadership role of Kaitātaki this year has meant we have a clear way for student voice to be heard and a tuākana role across our kura. Both Kayla and Hunter were chosen by their peers and staff as having mana (charisma and a role model), a true sense of wairua (embrace the spirit of kapa haka) and manakitanga (integrity, sincerity and respect towards Māori beliefs, language and culture). As Kaitātaki they are also part of the school council.
Watch this space as they get to work as I know one of the goals is fundraising for Korowai cloaks for the Kapa Haka leaders for competitions.

Today I had a chat with our Whānau House Leaders about why they applied for the role and our expectations of them in the role. They had some wonderful suggestions and ideas of what they want to achieve this year. We are looking forward to working with them to get in place a Whānau House Cup/shield that the houses will compete for throughout the year.

A fantastic afternoon at the swimming sports today with so much courage shown by all who competed. A huge thank you to Mr L for organising, the other staff involved and all the amazing parents who stepped up to help. It was also great to have whānau cheering on from the sidelines.
