Term 2, Week 4, 2016

To use a Game of Thrones phrase “Winter is Coming”, in fact I’m pretty sure it’s here! It was very nice to see the snow upon the Tararua ranges earlier this week. It’s been another great week at school despite the regular rain and cooler temperatures. Our two construction projects continue to forge ahead and we are hoping to have the canopy on Te Kete Tangaroa and the new classroom to form Te Kete Pounamu completed in the coming weeks, which will be very exciting. Also I have exciting news surrounding Kapa Haka. We will look to be reigniting the Kapa Haka flame here at Hokowhitu School very shortly. The tragic passing of Pa Dawson Tamatea last year meant a halt for our Kapa Haka roopu. We have now secured a new kaiako to oversee and teach Kapa Haka to our students with the blessing of Andrea & Sarah Tamatea who have both kindly offered their services to the roopu when they can. We really appreciate that we can still maintain this link with the Tamatea whanau.
