Entries for October 2021


Term 4, Week 2 - 2021

A number of our tamariki have been involved in the Dance NZ Made competitions this week. Congratulations to Abbie F and Livvy G (duo) who have advanced to the national event being held this weekend. Jodeci participated in the regional solos competition with her own choreographed piece.
Our Hokowhitu team entered in the DanceNZ made Regional Competition that competed last night and they not only won their section but scored the most points of ANY team performing on the night (right up to Year 13 participants), so were also named as the Overall Champions. Wow, wow, wow!!
Additionally -
Emma W, Olivia Z and Inas also won golden tickets to a special event being held next month.
Sincere thanks to Mrs Flaus for the work she has put into these dances.
Also thanks to whānau who have sorted their children for these events. A big thank you to Sydney and Jay Pelman from Anomaly Dance Studio who created a fantastic set for the children and trained them to perfection.
We wish our competitors all the very best as they perform in the National competition this weekend.

Term 4, Week 1 - 2021

Welcome to Term 4 - a special welcome to our new tamariki and your whānau. We are confident you will feel happy and appreciated as a member of our school community.

We are continuing to work within Ministry of Education guidelines regarding activities that can or cannot proceed due to the Delta variant of Covid19. While we are saddened when any event needs to be cancelled, we remain upbeat and positive about the many things that we can be in control of - we have been much less affected in our day to day lives than many places further north than us! I’m sure you’ll all join me in hoping that Auckland and Waikato areas will soon be ‘closer to normal’ too.
Let’s hope we all know more about the way forward after the Government’s announcements today.

Term 3, Week 10 - 2021

What a fabulously ‘busy’ end to this term we’ve had. Book week activities this week were loads of fun and I must admit coming to school in your dressing gown was very cosy too! Thanks to Mrs Gifford Moore for her organisation of Book Week - due to alert levels, we needed to adapt some of the usual activities but .... we managed to make it happen!
