Principal Korero

Welcome back to the new term, we trust you have all had a blessed and safe time with your tamariki. 
Welcome to our new students, Malachi and Rylen who join us in the Junior Teina class. 
I will be taking extended leave for the next 4 weeks to provide emergency care for my elderly grandparents to which I am the closest relative to be able to support them at this time. In my place, Whaea Billie will be acting principal if you have any questions or concerns please forward them to her. Whaea Marian will be teaching full-time in the Junior Teina class. My thoughts and prayers are with you all whilst I am away and I look forward to being back on board in the first week of June. Blessings in Jesus name, Whaea Lanea
