Term 2, Week 3 - 2021


This year the Student Council chose to support the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge supporting blood cancer patients and their families. Thanks to everyone who made a donation towards this very worthwhile charity event. Students and staff raised $772.40 to support Mr Marshall’s stair climbing effort. Well done everyone!

Term 2, Week 2 - 2021

As part of our Kahui Ako work stream, we have a focus around ‘wellbeing’. Developing a sense of wellbeing is a complex and intricate process - i.e. not something that you can just ‘turn on’ in a human being.

One of our initiatives for this year has been to select and train senior students to act as ‘Wellbeing Warriors’ (who have a similar role to peer mediators). These ‘warriors’ are rostered to support students in the playground - to assist with minor conflict resolution and support positive peer relationships. Mrs Flaus has been training our Wellbeing Warriors and we plan to have them ‘in action’ from next week.

This will not reduce the number of staff we have rostered in the playground.

Term 2, Week 1 - 2021

A very warm welcome to Term 2 everyone and a special welcome to the 12 new students who have joined us at Hokowhitu School this week.
We also welcome Karen Douglas as an office assistant. Ms Douglas will be assisting Jennifer Bates each morning and providing support in classrooms as needed.
I am confident that everyone will be very welcoming and that in no time at all, you will all feel very much part of the
Hokowhitu School whānau/community.

Term 1, Week 11 - 2021


Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the Year 4 - 6 visits to Te Rangimarie marae this week. As usual, the Te Awe Awe whānau have provided our tamariki with a very welcoming environment in which to learn more about the culture and traditions of our local Rangitane people.
We will be holding a whānau hui in Term 2 and look forward to your suggestions/ideas for ways that we can further strengthen these partnerships and develop deeper understandings.

I trust that everyone had a fabulous long weekend, and enjoyed the autumn sun. Due to this being a very short week, this week’s newsletter is mostly to bring you up to date with end of term and early term two events. There will be photos of this week’s Rippa Rugby tournament and the Enviro teams outing in next weeks’ newsletter.
