2017 Whānau Awards
Ko tō wairua ātaahua tēnā e whitawhita mai nā i te pō, i te anu mātao, i te riri o tama. Ko Hineruhi koe, nāna ki tū te ata hāpara.
This is your warm spirit that shines in the darkness of night, a warmth in the unforgiving cold, in the unsettling times.
Just some of the accolades that were showered over our students who continue to amaze our wonderful community with their academic accomplishments.
Whānau Prizegiving, an occasion full of love, laughter, and a few tears, culminated in the sharing of food. Celebrating 2017 successes was a moving experience enjoyed by students, their proud families, and members of the community.
One of our highlights was the surprise visit from our very own Whaea Ann Zachan who returned to see our students in stunning form over the evening.
I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in-store for us.
A special mention to our new Principal Mr McKinley and Senior Leadership Team who work tirelessly behind the scenes, staff who spend every waking moment pushing our students to their potential, and whānau, in particular students, our leaders of tomorrow.
Mā pango, mā whero, ka oti te mahi.
Through working together can we achieve our goal.
