Principal’s Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa.
Our vision and values are important to us during this time of coronavirus crisis:

The Heart of Learning in our Thriving Communityour vision – is more important than ever. We aim to be your hub for learning from home, to support you as whānau, and to play a role in helping our community to do better than survive this time.

Akoranga, learning, looks very different right now and we’re all learning together. Making sure that learning from each other is part of our isolated lives could lead to improvements in how we learn as a school after coronavirus.

Respect for ourselves and others is hugely important right now, from making sure we look after our own health to giving up things we care about in order to save lives by preventing the spread of this virus.

Our Community has come together in a way I haven’t seen before, with care for vulnerable people and people taking time to talk with neighbours. We need to hang on to some of the things we’ve enjoyed about “lockdown” as we get back to normal.

Hauora, or wellbeing, can be hard to look after but we need to look after ourselves before we can look after others. It helps to use a structure to think about, with our self as a whare or building with 4 corners. All corners need to be balanced for our house (our self) to stay up: taha tinana (physical) taha wairua (spiritual) taha hinengaro (mental, emotional) and taha whānau (family, social).

I’m proud of how our community is handling this crisis. There are still big challenges for us to face and we need to keep working together, with the values above, to make sure we come out the other end stronger than before.
