After a busy school year I hope that you will be able to enjoy some warm summer weather with family and friends. Whatever you and your family do over the summer I do hope you will begin the new school year in February recharged and refreshed.
To our families who are leaving our school community this year we wish you all the best. In particular I wish our graduating Year 8 students all the very best as they move onto secondary school. This group of students have much to offer and contribute to the schools they will next be going to but also to the wider community as fine sportsmen and women, talented artists, musicians, linguists, scientists, mathematicians, writers and performers, creative thinkers and generally active citizens who care about the world around them. I am certain we will continue to celebrate their successes in the years to follow. Good luck to you all. Kia waimarie. May 2018 be a great year for each of you.
On behalf of the staff team I wish you and your family a relaxing break over the festive season.I look forward to meeting our new families and welcoming back our returning families in the New Year on Thursday 1st February when the school year gets underway.
New families wanting to enrol their children at Te Aro for a February start can call the school office from Wednesday 24 January. Georgie and I will be available to meet with you.
Ko te tumanako, kia mārie tō koutou Kirihimete, ā, ka whakanuia te tau hou ki ōu koutou hoa me ō koutou whānau. Kua tae mai rā ngā hararei. I hope you all have a happy and peaceful Christmas, and are able to celebrate the New Year with your friends and whānau.
Kake tonu Te Aro. Ever Upwards Te Aro.
Kind regards. Nga mihi nui,
